The Broncos’ HC McDaniels is looking to improve on last seasons poor rushing performance. He’s going looking to do this by having a bigger offensive line versus the lighter zone blocking of last season. However, it’s going to be a stuggle today as his three “big guys” are all nursing injuries. Instead he’ll have three offensive linemen who will be playing their first NFL Games. That will spell trouble for the running game and will force QB Kyle Orton to pass more. The problem with that is Orton is missing last years big two receivers of Marshall and Scheffler.
The Broncos also come into this game with a bigger on the defensive line as well which should cause problems against a Jaguars team that is hoping to pound the ball with RB Maurice Jones-Drew. They also have a secondary full of veteran players with Champ Baily, Brian dawkins, and Andre Goodman. Get more NFL betting picks from Michael at Touthouse.com
