Vic Fangio taking over the helm in Denver and Dalton Risner DEN Right Guard was the 5th best rookie in Week 1 according to PFF. You’re probably wondering why I bring this up and if it matters. The Dog says it does. WOOF WOOF
Lot of questions come from this.
Does Fangio have a plan for Will Risner and the rest of the Denver line to keep the Bears pass rush at bay?
Probably. But a plan is a plan and to The Dog that means nothing. Go ahead and scheme all you want Vic.
Will Risner and the rest of the Denver line be able to keep the Bears pass rush at bay?
Does it even matter with Flacco back there?
Coming off of a loss to Oakland, Denver comes home with little hope of a W here. They will go running back by committee with Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay against a Bears defense that should keep the two of them bottled up to paltry numbers. Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders ought to get most of the downfield targets for the Broncos in this one, but ought to be blanketed by the talented Bears secondary. The aforementioned Bears pass rush coupled with Flacco growing roots in the pocket won’t give either one enough time to free themselves up.
Bears cover at -3.
The Dog says lay off the O/U on this one. Too many questions about their ability to rack up a ton of points as the Bears look to improve offensively after an ineffective Week 1.
My phone is dead. Who can call in this bet for me?
