Mile High Huddle Predicts: Denver Broncos vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Week 4

The MHH analysts weigh in on whether or not the Broncos will make it four straight to start 2016.

The Denver Broncos are coming off of their most impressive win of the young season, ready to make it nine straight victories dating back to the Week 15 of the 2015 season.

The 1-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, an explosive but uneven young club, stand in their way. Will the Broncos leave Florida with their unbeaten record intact or will the Bucs get back on track? MHH has some thoughts:

After tearing apart the Cincinnati Bengals in the 4th quarter, Denver travels to Tampa Bay to take on the Bucs and their porous defense. Denver will get after Jameis Winston all game long and dominate from start to finish.

On the road for another tough early-season matchup, the Denver Broncos again get it done behind a terrific pass rush led by Von Miller and Shane Ray, while the running game gets back on track as C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker find plenty of running room while Trevor Siemian continues to make Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas very happy out wide. 4-0.

The Denver Broncos defense are going to exploit Jameis Winston's tendency to be loose with the ball. I expect the Broncos to take it away at least twice. On offense, the Broncos get back to running the ball and C.J. Anderson has another productive game statistically, while Trevor Siemian takes a step backward, getting back into the interception column.

Siemian will come down to Earth a little bit after his stellar performance in Cincy, but the offense should be carried on the backs of C.J. and Devontae Booker. Defensively, I don't see any way the Bucs' line will slow down the two edge rushers, and Aqib Talib will come up with a turnover against the team that drafted him back in 2008.

Although the Buccaneers pass rush gets to Siemian three times in the first half with a challenged OL, the run game churns for CJ Anderson. An early third quarter Kwon Alexander pick six puts the game briefly into the balance, but Siemian and the Broncos stabilize with a quick touchdown drive. The defense puts the exclamation point on a victory with a Chris Harris interception return for score.

The defensive difference maker(s) in the game will be Shane Ray and Derek Wolfe. Tampa is next to last in turnover differential at minus-six. Expect these two defenders to make things happen. My game ball will go to C.J. Anderson. I am expecting C.J. to rush for 120 yards and one TD, with 35 yards receiving.

Famous Jameis and co. try to duplicate the game plan Cincy took into last Sunday's game and try to run the ball to keep the Denver Defense from teeing of on the young QB. It works with marginal results and Tampa is forced into into airing out probably after halftime and the Denver pass rush gets to Winston 5 times.

The offense continues to be unspectacular but efficient. Siemian probably doesn't go for 300 and 4 TD again, but 250 and 2 while playing mistake-free ball and C.J. bounces back with a 120 yard and 2 TD performance.

As the great Chris Berman would say, we're all on the Broncos. What could possibly go wrong? Let's hope nothing, and this time next week we'll still be talking about how long Denver is going to remain unbeaten.
