What might tip the scales to this Denver defense are the teams it beat in the postseason to win it all. The Broncos beat the Steelers, Patriots and Panthers. They were the first-, third- and fourth-best scoring teams in the league.
I’ve read thousands of words in the last week to soak in post championship revelry. This is the most common topic, and it’s hard to bypass this argument. Sure, the stats might support other teams of years past, but maybe for these three games, this was the best defensive playoff run if only because of who they did it against.
