Outside linebacker Bradley Chubb was understandably happy after the Denver Broncos’ defense shut down the San Francisco 49ers’ offense on Sunday Night Football.
After an 11-10 victory over the Niners, Chubb stated, “I don’t intend to sound too arrogant, but I think we’re the greatest defense in the NFL.” “We recorded it on tape and on film. Simply put, we must keep going.
The data indicates Chubb’s claim is not far off.
Through three games, Denver’s defense is second in terms of points allowed per game and third in terms of yards allowed per game (251.3). (12). The Broncos are worn out after leading the league in forced (six) and recovered fumbles (three).
With safety Justin Simmons expected to return from injury later in the season, the unit has only made one interception so far, but more are certainly on the way. Additionally, Denver’s defense has accumulated nine sacks, which is tied for eighth-most in the NFL.
The Broncos’ offense has had trouble getting points on the board while the defense has shined. Chubb is sure that the other team will work out the kinks in a timely manner.
The pass rusher declared, “We’re simply going to stick together as a team.” “I know they’re going to get it right on the offensive side of the ball, and everything will fall into place, and the flood gates are going to open.
At the end of the day, we [the defense] just want to do our bit and give our team the greatest chance to win, which is what we’ve been doing, and they [the offense] came through both times. We’re just continuing to work as a group and a unit. That is what we advocate. group first It’s been beneficial to us.
Although it is not without a doubt, Denver’s defense is among the best in the NFL. The Broncos will be a difficult opponent for any opponent this season if the offense can quickly turn things around.
