The Denver Broncos have really improved their defense as the season wore one. They have allowed 17 points or less over their past four games. In the playoffs they opened up with a hot San Diego Chargers team and the Broncos held Phillip Rivers and company to just 16 points in a ten point win. Next up in the AFC Championship game Tom Brady and the New England Patriots came to Denver and it was another outstanding defensive performance by the Broncos as Denver prevails 26-16 as they cover as a -5 point wagering favorite. Seattle gets a lot of praise for their defense and it’s warranted as the team is the number one defense in the NFL. But in today’s NFL the rules have favored the offensive teams. There was a saying that Defense wins Championships and that was true back in the day. But today things are quite different in the league. Another benefit for the Broncos side is the fact that Peyton Manning has five targets he can go to in the passing game. He is a master of sprinkling the ball to multiple receivers to keep the defense guessing. Richard Sherman can only cover one guy so that still leaves five possible targets to pass to for Peyton Manning in Super Bowl 48. With Denver improving quite a bit on defense their season long power rating is not accurate looking at this point spread of Denver -2.
