Broncos defense says it hasn’t lost swagger after blowout loss

The Broncos gave up 51 points and 419 yards to the Eagles last Sunday, which was a low-water mark for a defense that had kept the Broncos in other games while the offense stumbled.

It was the first time the Broncos had given up more than 276 yards this season and they hope to show that it was an uncharacteristic outing when the Patriots pay them a visit on Sunday night. One part of making that happen is assuring the unit remains confident and defensive coordinator Joe Woods believes that’s the case.

“It didn’t go anywhere,” Woods said, via the team’s website. “It’s there. The swag is always there. I think the guys are frustrated. They’ve been playing hard. We’ve been doing good things at times. But at the end of the day, it’s about did you win or lose. It’s a bottom-line business in the NFL. Did you win the game? Did you lose? And we’re losing, so they’re frustrated. But the swagger is there.”

The unit’s record makes a rebound seem like a good bet, although how much it will matter if the offense stays at the same level remains to be seen.

    It was difficult to tell whether Wentz was that good or Denver’s defense was that bad. It was a royal beatdown either way.

    Probably a combo of both. Philly’s season is likely to come crashing down at some point.

  3. Denver is sort of like the Jets were they live in a bubble of delusion with an inflated opinion of their team, regardless of the reality.

    Elway could take a steamy dump on the entire fanbase, and they’d still think he was great even though he was awful in Super Bowls, threw a lot of INTs, lost a lot of winnable games, and is a very mediocre GM unable to draft consistently well, quick with the checkbook only.

  4. If by swagger they mean dejected midway through 2nd Quarter, slouching on the bench, then they had a LOT of swagger vs. Philly!

  5. The Broncos always play the Patriots tough and right now the D has something to prove. With the Bronco’s weak offense vs Patriot’s weak defense and the good Patriots offense vs a good Broncos defense how do you pick this one? Home field advantage?

  6. I think it would be best as a Pat’s fan to be very cautious about bad mouthing a Denver team that man handles Brady every game, but that’s not your style. They may not beat you on the score board but they are going make you very sore.

    Pats D has allowed 13 points in the last games on average, and is clearly ascending and getting healthier as well.

    There has been nothing weak about their D in recent weeks at all. In fact, I could easily argue their D has been the catalyst to create the winning streak while the offense has had its red zone struggles.

    Thanks for stopping by and the Pats will enjoy sweeping your paper tiger Bills yet again this year after your mortifying loss to the Jets.

  8. Alex Smith has beaten these chumps how many times in a row? Alex freaking Smith? Can’t wait to see what Mahomes does to them.
