Broncos defense has allowed 593 yards rushing the last two weeks.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) October 14, 2018
That is NOT a typo.
This horrible stretch started by giving up 323 rush yards to the New York Jets, with Isaiah Crowell rushing for 219 yards and a touchdown along with Bilal Powell adding on 99 yards of his own. The Jets scored 34 points on the afternoon and beat the Broncos, 34-16. Now, if you're going to get gashed that badly by Crowell and Powell, then logic would dictate that Todd Gurley is going to obliterate you. Unsurprisingly, logic played out.
Gurley ran for 208 yards and two touchdowns in route to a 23-20 victory for the Rams in freezing temperatures in Denver. The Broncos even held the Rams' electric passing game to just 174 yards, but it didn't matter due to Gurley's effectiveness.
