Denver Broncos destroy the Dallas Cowboys in week 2

Denver Broncos destroy the Dallas Cowboys in week 2”

The narrative going into the Denver Broncos' week two matchup against the Dallas Cowboys was that the duo of Von Miller and Shaquil Barrett off the edge would struggle with the dominant offensive line the Cowboys have. Joseph said Booker most likely won't play this weekend but he was pleased to see him back on the field for what was really a jog-through following the Monday night game. Wolfe said. "We feed off of it as a defense, as a team".

Fast forward four years and both rosters have gone through massive restructuring. Nobody wants their star RB risking injury just to pretend to try to make a meaningless tackle late in a three-score game.

In week 2, the Broncos out-rushed the Dallas Cowboys 178 yards to 40.

The big loss to the Broncos offers no such comfort.

Another thing that might hurt Prescott's self-esteem is the performance of Trevor Siemian. The Broncos also effectively ran the ball and won the battle of the time of possession.

Trevor Siemian found a way to cut through Dallas' defense time and again, and by the time the Denver Broncos quarterback was finished, the mistakes he made were nothing more than an afterthought. The Denver offense was able to come together and execute the game plan.

NOTES: Broncos DE Zach Kerr missed a second consecutive game because of a bruised knee.

With the defense on the field so much, it became impossible for them to catch their breath and in the end it was their undoing as the Broncos just beat them with tough, smash-mouth football. Menelik Watson allowed a couple of sacks of Siemian, and one of those sacks resulted in a fumble. The league tends not to mess around with lightning, although high winds also have caused games to be temporarily suspended as well.

Dak Prescott completed 30 of his 50 pass attempts but completed just 46.7% of his passes to Bryant (7 of 15).

So Dallas' defense isn't all that, and their offense isn't either... So far in 2017 the Denver Broncos are ranked in the top five.

A game between the Bucs and Los Angeles Rams was suspended last season for an extended period. The offense didn't fare any better.

While things change, the current win streak by Denver hasn't, as the Broncos have one the last five meetings between the two teams.

Both teams had lost in Week 1 and so both were intent on avoiding falling to 0-2, however, it is the Bengals that find themselves the first team of the new season to drop to 0-2. The Broncos controlled the clock, racking up 178 yards on the ground and holding onto the ball for almost 34 minutes of the game. The Broncos have shouted to anyone who will listen that their defense, 28th against the run last season, had plugged its most glaring weakness from a season ago.

Fowler suffered a concussion on the play and did not return to the game, according to The Denver Post.
