It’s no surprise that the Denver Broncos were blown out of last season’s big game against the Seattle Seahawks. But this year they aim to make it a different story as the 2014 season kicked off on Sunday.

The defense has improved quite a bit with their signings of Corner Aqib Talib, Defensive End DeMarcus Ware, and Safety T.J. Ward.

Toss in their draft pick, talented Corner Bradley Roby, and you can see how the Broncos addressed their lack of a solid defensive core from last year.

What will stay consistent for Denver?

Well for one, the Broncos will score points and lots of them behind their Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning. And with a healthy core of receiving options including Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, who had a HUGE game, and Wes Welker (currently serving a suspension) the offense will continue to flow nicely.

Manning also has a new toy in speedy Receiver Emmanuel Sanders to add to the already historic offense. Don’t forget to add in the young stud Montee Ball to step up in place of Knowshon Moreno at Running back. The changes that we can expect are on the other side of the ball with the Defensive squad.

Denver Broncos’ Big Defensive Changes

So we know that Outside Linebacker Von Miller is an extremely talented player and has been the staple of the Broncos D for the better part of the last three years.

We know this from his ability to pass rush and his 35 career sacks. What hasn’t been the case is a strong defensive line, defensive back field. DeMarcus Ware, Dallas Cowboy legend, is now an integral part of a defensive line that has been missing some talent since the team lost Elvis Dumervil.

Plus with Aqib Talib, Chris Harris (currently injured), and Bradley Roby, their new rookie from Ohio State, covering receivers they can better fair against the Calvin Johnson’s and Julio Jones’ of the NFL. The pairing of Rahim Moore and newly added T.J. Ward also gives the team a good security blanket at the back.

The good thing is that the team looked good for the first half of their Week 1 game against the Indianapolis Colts and the team will have more games to get in sync in the coming weeks.

If the Denver Broncos can continue to get better on defense and provide the offense that they have been, then we may see the best Super Bowl loser turned Super Bowl winners in NFL history with the 2014 Denver Broncos.
