Denver Broncos

The Broncos were motivated by their recent victory over the Cleveland Browns. They triumphed with a 24-19 scoreboard. QB Brandon Allen was all smiles with an exemplary performance. He performed at 12/20 and 193 passing yards. He also threw in 2 TDs for good measure. Phillip Lindsay didn’t want to get left behind in the stats board. Aside from gaining 92 yards via 9 carries, he also rushed for a TD. Noah Fant led the receivers’ end by catching the ball 3 times for an additional 115 yards gained. 

The Denver Broncos showed the indicators of a winning team. They ran for 20 out of 43 plays. They also implemented 13 first downs with 7 infractions. If one were to compare yardage gained, they had 302 versus the opponent’s 351 yards. However, they were better at converting yardage into points.

The Broncos seem to have learned their lesson. They should keep rushing tirelessly, and work towards improving their defense further. They need to lessen the rush attempts that go through their defensive matrix. In this way, they’ll ensure that the opponent doesn’t outscore them in any way.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are well on their way for a Final Four showdown. Their recent victory against the Dallas Cowboys has put them in targeting range of a possible Finals berth. They outlasted their opponents with a 28-24 endgame score. QB Kirk Cousins showed everyone his winning form with 23/32 and 220 air yards. He put in an exclamation point with 2 thrown TDs. The RB was rushing all over the place with 26 carries that added 86 yards. He also rushed for 1 TD. Meanwhile, the top receiver caught the ball 7 times and further added 86 yards. 

The Vikings were plugging in stats at every corner. For defense, they held down the opposition at a 60% throw completion rate. They conceded 22 rush attempts. What’s interesting is that they allowed the opponent to cover 443 yards, as opposed to their own 364 yards gained. This is perhaps the best example that indicates yardage gained does not guarantee a win.

The Vikings compensated their inferior yardage gain with superior scoring capabilities. Out of 69 plays, they turned to the rush tactic 36 times, and it obviously did not let them down.
