Looming Large: Champ Bailey
While the score was close and the game in doubt until the end, the Broncos defense was very impressive. They held the Bills to184 total yards, including only 72 yards through the air. The key player on that defense, and easily the most feared cover cornerback in the league is Champ Bailey. He has 39 interceptions for his career, with 18 of them coming over the last two seasons while essentially playing on an island every game.
The Broncos have the luxury of putting the All-Pro cornerback on any team's top wide receiver and having the utmost confidence he will shut him down. Such was the case in week one when Lee Evans, one of the best deep threats in the NFL, managed just two catches for five yards while being blanketed by Bailey all game.
With the ability of Bailey and new addition Dre Bly to play man coverage, it allows for the rest of the Broncos defense to aggressively attack the running game without fear of being beaten for a big play deep. It would appear that the Jaguars offensive approach plays right into the hands of this style of defense. Their execution on offense will need to be near perfect if they expect to have success in this game, and if quarterback David Garrard isn't careful, the ball could very well end up in Bailey's hands as well.
