Week 3: at Green Bay Packers

All TE vs GB

FBG says: Tough matchup. Joe Flacco attempted 50 passes last week--the second-most of any quarterback during Week 2. He completed 70 percent of those passes for 292 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. His interception was a costly one coming from the two-yard line as they were on the cusp of scoring, but beyond that misstep, Flacco was improved above what he showed in Week 1. His offensive line is still allowing a high volume of pressures as they are playing very poorly right now, which will put a strain on Flacco's ability to push the ball downfield as he is accustomed to doing. Emmanuel Sanders was a target-hog last week with 13 targets as he led the team in receiving along with notching that lone receiving touchdown. Sanders now leads the team with seven red zone looks through these first two weeks. Cortland Sutton has seen some scoring opportunities, but he has come up short so far. After a solid opener, Sutton struggled under tight coverage last week. Both Broncos running backs continue to be steadily involved in the passing attack though as Phillip Lindsay has hauled in four receptions in each of the first two games while Royce Freeman surprisingly out-performed Lindsay through the air last week with five receptions for 48 yards. The Packers defense did a great job against the pass last week as they picked off Kirk Cousins twice while holding him to just 230 yards and a 44 percent completion rate. The Packers cornerbacks have lined up all over the field so far this season, so it is tough to chart a single matchup for most of the game. All three primary cornerbacks have played very well to start the season though, so the Broncos wide receivers will all be in for tough matchups. The one area of opportunity looks to be when Emmanuel Sanders line s up in the slot, as he could find some space against Tramon Williams. The Packers did lose backup safety Raven Greene this past week as Greene landed on the injured reserve list with an ankle injury, but he was only depth behind Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage--both of whom are excellent options to have over the top. On the defensive line, the Packers will have a significant advantage in the trenches due to the struggles of this Broncos offensive line and strength the Packers have both on the interior with Kenny Clark and edges with Za'Darius Smith. Joe Flacco and his supporting case should have a tough time moving the ball in this one unless their ground game can get something going.
