Broncos: Three things to watch

November 20, 2009

1. Get good quarterback play


Kyle Orton was having a very good game against Washington before he got hurt. Broncos fans know what happened after Chris Simms came in at quarterback. The Broncos need above-average quarterback play to win Sunday, no matter who gets the start.  


2. Pressure Rivers


In the first meeting between the teams, San Diego scored 20 points in the first half and three points in the second half. The difference was pretty simple: The Broncos got ample pressure on quarterback Philip Rivers. Denver needs to get to Rivers, who is perhaps the best deep ball passer in the NFL. 


3. Don’t let Sproles win it


Mitch Berger was brought in to punt for the Broncos after Brett Kern couldn’t sufficiently execute some directional punts. The final straw was when San Diego’s Darren Sproles returned a punt for a touchdown earlier this year. Berger, who has struggled at times, needs to be on point Sunday.
