I’m one of the few behind Denver here, I think they are nice value based on my SB theory.
While the Panthers are a highly effective team they just dont excite me. Compared to some other teams they are just a bit dull, but that’s just my 2 pence.
Key for the broncos are their secondary and containment tactics. The secondary need to play well to give the LBs time to get to Cam and with the Panthers O line being so strong its going to take longer to get to Cam than it did to get to Brady. I say containment because with the Broncos being so great in all defensive positions I imagine we shall see Cam legging it around a bit as another means to move the football so containing him is a big priority.
I also expect to see the Panthers play a lot of those diversion sweeps that they have executed so well recently, they are going to have to find different ways to move the football.
