PFF: Broncos Defense Shines

Pro Football Focus released their top-graded players for the Broncos-Ravens game. The top five for the Broncos:

OLB DeMarcus Ware (+10.9)
OLB Von Miller (+6.5)
ILB Brandon Marshall (+5.4)
OLB Shaquil Barrett (+3.6)
S Darian Stewart (+3.4)

The top-rated player for Baltimore was Jimmy Smith at +3.4, the same rating as Stewart.

The Broncos didn’t have as good of a day on offense, obviously. PFF’s Sam Monson has some thoughts about Peyton’s struggles.

With that said, all the worries about Brandon McManus missing two field goals (one into the wind) in the preseason were for naught, as evidenced yesterday, and as PFF acknowledges.

Perhaps Broncos fans should relax as well about the offense, too?
