Denver’s Defense Keeps Broncos Afloat As Wilson settles In

Denver’s defense has long been the team’s strong point and it’s no different during the first month of this season as Russell Wilson struggles to settle in with his new teammates and coaches.

Wilson has led back-to-back fourth-quarter comebacks against Houston and San Francisco thanks to a stingy defense that has set up the scuffling offense for late-game heroics.

The Broncos take a 2-1 record into their showdown Sunday at Las Vegas where the Raiders have lost three close games under their new coach Josh McDaniels.

He was Denver’s head coach back in 2009-10 where he famously faltered.
