The Denver Broncos were held to 3 points yesterday in a crushing home loss to the New England Patriots. Emmanuel Sanders was held to 3 catches for 48 yards, and is not happy about the perception that he was shut down.
I’m honestly surprised that teams even spend a dime at the position in cover-two. They should just sign children and put them on the field.
New England now has the #1 scoring defense in the league, though they have accumulated that by playing a schedule where Trevor Siemian is one of the better quarterbacks they have faced.
The loss, meanwhile, dropped Denver to 8-6, behind the 9-5 Dolphins, and the Dolphins get a final week home game against New England. By then, the Patriots may have the #1 seed officially locked up, and be able to put a toddler in the secondary and give Malcom Butler some rest.
