- The Broncos concentrated their runs in the middle of the formation this week. This is a tendency they have been having over the past few games.
- Denver had it’s best production over the left end, which is typical for an NFL team. However, they did very well running directly at the center and ended the day with a 5.8 yard, per carry, average.
- Most of the carries were concentrated to the left side of the formation. Probably an attempt to involve the Bronco’s two best run blockers: Chris Kuper and Orlando Franklin.
