As the Broncos crash back to earth after Thursday’s 27-20 loss to the Chargers (a loss much more convincing than the score), there is reason to believe revival is just around the corner.
The Broncos crawled to 18 yards rushing against the Chargers. This might not be the top reason why the Chargers departed Colorado with a major upset, but those measly 18 yards is one of the top reasons.
But I don’t believe this level of rushing troubles will continue. Knowshon Moreno has emerged as a superb back. Of course, it’s one of the better gigs in sport to play running back alongside Peyton Manning, but Moreno has shown new levels of toughness and elusiveness this season.
He’ll soon return to his tough, elusive ways.
