In Week 5, the Broncos (4-0) return home to face a surging Atlanta Falcons team that currently sits atop the NFC East with a 2 game cushion at 3-1. After dismantling the Carolina Panthers at home, the Falcons now boast the best statistical offense in the NFL. Julio Jones and Matt Ryan are both coming off of record breaking performances and look to continue their trend this week on the road in Denver.
On the other side of the ball stands one of the NFL’s fiercest and most dominant defenses this year. The Broncos have used their defense early and often to set the tempo of the game, which ultimately wears opponents out as the game winds down in the 4th quarter. For the Broncos, getting pressure on Matt Ryan will be the key to winning the game against a high octane offense. If the No Fly Zone wants the world to take them seriously, here is their chance to silence their critics.
Will it be a back and forth air show, or will Denver’s D be able to set the tempo and secure Denver’s 5 straight win to start the 2016 campaign?
Plain and simple, folks. Something has got to give. Go Broncos!
