Broncos defeat the Raiders in a classic 4th quarter comeback

Raiders 19-20 Broncos

After coming from behind in the 4th quarter to beat the Oakland Raiders, the Denver Broncos remain undefeated.

It is way too early in the season to celebrate though, especially when you play in the same division as the scary-looking Kansas City Chiefs. This should give any Denver fan a reason to be cautiously optimistic.

The Broncos continue to struggle on offense, as quarterback Case Keenum works through the playbook learning curve. Keenum finished the night 19/35, with 222 yards, and one interception. These are stats that would make anyone itchy to hit that ejection seat.

His regression from Week 1 should not be an immediate cause for alarm, however. Halftime adjustments, particularly on the offense, helped the team finally find the end zone in the 2nd half. Keenum was calmer in the pocket during the 2nd half. He even scored a touchdown on a QB keeper early in the 4th quarter.

Denver Broncos defeat Seattle Seahawks after a balanced attack on offense and defense

Official Reporter, Denver Broncos

By Leora Ruzin // @LeoraKitty78

Denver Broncos- 27, Seattle Seahawks- 24

 

The Denver Broncos are coming off one of the most disappointing seasons since the McDaniels era (5-11, 4th place in the AFC West).  This, after coming off a slightly-less disappointing season in 2016 (9-7, 3rd place in the AFC West).

Once quarterback Peyton Manning retired, and offensive coordinator Wade Phillips left to go to the Los Angeles Rams, the team fell into disarray. When Head Coach Gary Kubiak retired the end of the 2016 season, the proverbial last nail on the coffin was hammered down. It’s crazy to think that this is the team that won Super Bowl 50, and yet, here we are.

Is it weekend at Bernie’s for Broncos or does Elway have a plan?

OTFB Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon //@ABroncoNole

If you like short pieces to read, this is one. If you left the country for a month-long walkabout, don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything. The 2018 Broncos look exactly like the 2017 Broncos except they released a starting cornerback and signed a third string one.  They also signed an expensive quarterback, who has to prove himself.

That’s it, kiddies. Seriously.

Well, I lied. They also allowed free agent wide receiver Bennie Fowler and their former second-round pick WR Cody Latimer to walk. Either Elway believes this team only needed quarterback Case Keenum, or he has a ton of transactions up his sleeve.

Vikings miss the mark–Eagles Fly to Super Bowl LII

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

Eagles 38 – Vikings 7

It was supposed to be a battle of the NFC backups. A true redemption story of two backup/starter/backup quarterbacks in Case Keenum and Nick Foles. All season the Minnesota Vikings held the title of the number one defense in the NFC and entering this matchup as they were the favorite to win. But it was the Philadelphia Eagles defense that pressured Keenum and kept wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Theilen at bay.

NFC championship game preview

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera//@rxnlzbth

 

Both NFC divisional games were the edge of your seat entertaining. It was heartbreaking for the Saints.  Neither team lost by a mile, neither lost embarrassingly, neither lost because of mistakes (well, that can be subjective, I guess).  Both teams played great football and did everything they could to win. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough and now we are near the end of a spectacular season.

I mean, who predicted the Jacksonville Jaguars would actually make it this far?

Saints vs Vikings: A Preview

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

By Christy Chauvin //@WhoDatWarriors

NFL Playoffs – NFC Divisional Round

The Minnesota Vikings offensive line may be a weak link the New Orleans Saints can exploit in Sunday’s Divisional playoff game.

The Vikings most recent game loss was on December 10 when they played the Carolina Panthers.  The loss to the Panthers is notable because the offensive line had to be reshuffled, and the Vikings gave up a season-high six sacks to the Panthers, including a strip-sack that lead to a Panthers field goal.

During that game Vikings rookie, Danny Isidora played left guard.  Rashod Hill struggled at left tackle. The Vikings were playing from behind and had to pass the ball to win.  Vikings wide receiver, Adam Thielen, stated “We have to put those guys in better positions by starting fast and scoring early because then they don’t know if you’re going to run the ball or pass the ball. It’s complementary football,” Thielen added. “I think that’s why we haven’t [given up many] sacks this whole year because we’ve been able to score points and take pressure off those guys.”

The Detroit Lions Pride Report: Week 4

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

Lions 14 – Vikings 7

Quarterback Matthew Stafford’s 100th consecutive start was at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota to take on division rival Vikings.  The road historically hasn’t been great for the Lions, and the Vikings were coming off of a big Week 3 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

To win, the Lions would have to slow down rookie running back Dalvin Cook and stop wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination, especially after the team got late word that rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis was going to be out due to a concussion.

Despite the tall order the Lions stood firm.  Going into the game it was thought that it was going to be an offensive show down. However it turned into a defensive struggle and the Lions were able to shut down the high powered Vikings offense.  The Vikings had three turn overs, including one that sealed the win for the Lions thanks to safety Glover Quin batting the ball out of wide receiver Adam Thielen‘s hands.
