1. Bryan Bulaga/David Bakhtiari

Denver’s stats would say they are yet to record a sack this season. One would assume if that is the case, they are lacking talent on that side of the ball. Reality would tell you that’s anything but the case.

The Broncos have two stellar edge rushers. Von Miller is as good as it gets at his position and Bradley Chubb put together one of the best rookie years a pass rusher has had. These two can absolutely wreck the game for the Packers and give the Broncos all the momentum they need to pull off a win.

After struggling with protection in Week 1, the Packers were much better against the Vikings. The plan the coaching staff put in place to keep Bryan Bulaga healthy and ready seems to be working and he looks great so far this year. David Bakhtiari gave us all a good scare last week when he sprang up on the injury report with a back issue. Luckily for the Packers, it proved to be not bad enough to keep him out of the game.

They both will need to be on their A-game. The Broncos are aware they have zero sacks. Guys like Miller and Chubb won’t stay down for long. If anything, they have a ton of extra motivation.
