The Denver Broncos First Priority In Week 6 Is Sparking C.J. Anderson And The Running Game

The Broncos must get back to running the ball with authority in their first divisional game of the season.

Where has the running game for the Denver Broncos gone? After very promising performances in Weeks 1 and 2, the running game has been sub-par for the Broncos.

Part of it is due to the teams the Broncos have faced, daring Denver to beat them through the air, rather than on the ground. Against the Atlanta Falcons, the offensive line and rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch had a lot to do with C.J. Anderson struggling to pull off some good runs.

Make no mistake about it; Anderson is more than willing and ready to shove the rock down defenses throats! Although San Diego’s defense ranks 8th in the league in rushing yards per game, they will be looking to stop Trevor Siemian's air attack and his high-powered receivers first.  

As we all know, the Broncos will be without their head coach Gary Kubiak for the Thursday night divisional game. It will be up to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison to handle the play calling and get things moving on the road.

Nothing is better than going on the road and proving you can run the ball on a team. Expect the Broncos offense to hand the ball off early and often to Anderson to establish dominance and set the tone.


Our friends at Mile High Sports — The Final Word in conjunction with Strikes for Kids — are having a "Night out with the Broncos", October 25th, 2016. Please join them for a fun night at Top Golf and meet Denver Broncos players C.J. Anderson, Bradley Roby, Max Garcia and some of their teammates!

President of Strikes for Kids, Joe Allen, as well as MHS' The Final Word — Joe Rico and Alex Ramirez — are spearheading the effort for this fantastic event!

Mile High Huddle will be there and we look forward to seeing you there, as well!
