Rank Among Leaders
|Broncos DST gets three sacks, turnover |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(11/18/13) The Broncos DST turned in a decent performance in the Week 11 win. The unit sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith three times, forced a turnover and held K.C. to 17 points.
Linebacker Shaun Phillips got 1 1/2 sacks, and defensive end Malik Jackson had a half-sack and two quarterback hits. Linebacker Danny Trevathan forced a fumble that corner Quentin Jammer recovered. Denver did an excellent job against Jamaal Charles, holding him to 72 yards from scrimmage.
The Broncos DST faces a tougher matchup Week 12 at New England.
|'Hard work' paying off for Malik Jackson |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(10/16/13) Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson had the best game of his career Week 6 vs. Jacksonville, totaling seven tackles (five solo) and two sacks in the win. Jackson has three sacks in his last two games.
"We've been seeing Malik play well since training camp," Broncos defensive end Mitch Unrein said, per The Denver Post. "His hard work has paid off."
Jackson's recent surge has caught the attention of head coach John Fox.
"He is a good, young player, and he's developing and getting better each week," Fox said. "He obviously won our game ball, so he did pretty well."
|Broncos draft four defenders |
|(5/8/12) The Broncos drafted four defensive players in April's draft, the biggest of which (figuratively and literally) was Cincinnati defensive tackle Derek Wolfe. The 6-foot-5, 295-pound run-stuffer is expected to boost the team's defensive line rotation. Denver also drafted Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden, Tennessee defensive end Malik Jackson and Kentucky outside linebacker Danny Trevathan. Bolden is a medical gamble considering that he missed all of 2011 with a torn ACL. Jackson is a project-type player who played defensive tackle when he should have played end for the Volunteers, and Trevathan led the SEC in tackles in each of the last two seasons.|
