Denver Broncos vs. Washington Commanders
The Denver Broncos will conclude their two-game homestand this Sunday as they face off against the Washington Commanders in an interconference matchup. Denver, led by Head Coach Sean Payton, is eager to secure their first victory of the season and level their record at 1-1.
Despite a narrow 17-16 defeat to the Raiders in Week 1, the Broncos displayed promising signs of improvement. They are now geared up to take on the physical challenge presented by the Commanders. Quarterback Russell Wilson showcased efficiency, completing 27-of-34 passes in his debut in Payton’s offense. The running back duo of Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine proved productive in both the passing and running games. Notably, Denver’s offensive line exhibited marked improvement, featuring the Denver debuts of right tackle Mike McGlinchey and guard Ben Powers.
The Broncos’ defense also made an impact by limiting Raiders’ running back Josh Jacobs, the 2022 leading rusher, to just 2.5 yards per carry. They are determined to build upon this performance in their upcoming game. In the secondary, cornerback Pat Surtain II stood out with a career-high three pass breakups, and safety Kareem Jackson secured a red-zone interception, marking his 21st career interception. After dealing with the quick release of Raiders’ quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in Week 1, the Broncos’ pass rush is primed to apply pressure to second-year Washington quarterback Sam Howell and help the defense secure the turnover battle for the second consecutive week.
The Broncos have provided an injury update for the game. Outside linebacker Frank Clark (hip) and tight end Greg Dulcich (hamstring) have been ruled out. However, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (hamstring), defensive tackle D.J. Jones (knee), and cornerback Riley Moss (abdomen) have not been given specific game statuses and are expected to be available for Sunday’s matchup.
