Broncos Juice

“Overall to our offense in general, [we need] to add more juice there, whether it’s a receiver or a running back. Every good offense needs a guy who can take the ball from the [line of scrimmage] and go the distance with it. It’s important to have that aspect of an offense. Running back, receiver, wherever it comes from, but definitely having more juice on offense is a must in my opinion.”~Vance Joseph.

 

FAST FACTS

The Broncos won 5 of 6 games against New England from 2001 to 2007 (including postseason). They were the only NFL team to post a winning record against the dominant Patriots in that stretch.
