Broncos DST can't come up with turnovers in Week 2
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com (9/14/14) The Broncos DST managed just two sacks and no turnovers in the team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs in Week 2.
It was a disappointing result for the defensive unit, matching up against an offensive line that looks more exploitable than last year's group. They gave up 28 first downs to the Chiefs offense, allowing 11 successful conversions on 16 third-down attempts. The 2-0 Broncos have a tough test ahead in Week 3 with a trip to Seattle on the docket.

The Broncos DST is hoping that a lot of money spent in the offseason can lead to positive results this year. The Broncos added three high profile players on defense this offseason in DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, and they also spent their first-round pick on cornerback Bradley Roby. They lost Champ Bailey, but the upgrade with the younger Talib should help at cornerback. If Von Miller (ACL) can return at 100 percent than the Broncos should have a much-improved pass rush, and the Broncos DST should be able to improve from their No. 13 finish last season when they had 17 interceptions, 41 sacks, nine fumble recoveries and five touchdowns. We like the Broncos DST as a No. 1 Fantasy option, and they should be drafted with a late-round pick in all leagues.
