BOSTON (CBS) – As the Patriots get ready to host the Broncos at Gillette in Saturday night’s Divisional Playoff game, 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh and Zolak give you a little refresher course on the Denver Option.
With a quarterback like Tim Tebow, the ball could be going anywhere. He can run it himself, hand it off to running back Willis McGahee, or even try to beat the Pats through the air.
Chances are the Broncos are going to be running. They torched the Pats 167 first quarter rushing yards and 252 total yards on the ground back in Week 15.
Roche On T&R: Protect Brady!
Scott Zolak takes to the whiteboard to show how the Patriots should defend the option. They adjusted last month in Denver, and were able to contain the Broncos in the second half. Now they have both Patrick Chung and Brandon Spikes to mix into the equation, so what will this mean for the Pats?
Gresh & Zo Whiteboard:
And if Devin McCourty plays at free safety again, who does that leave to cover Denver receiver, and hero against Pittsburgh, Demaryius Thomas?
Zolak breaks it all down and gets you ready for the big game on Saturday!
