  1. The Denver Broncos opened this season hoping that new stability at the quarterback position would help them rebound from a traumatic 5-11 record in 2017. General Manger John Elway elected to go with Case Keenum to provide that stability; hoping that Keenum would be able to replicate some of the success he enjoyed in his previous season with the Minnesota Vikings. As Los Angeles Rams fans already know Cooper Kupp Jersey Elite , Keenum is a gritty little quarterback who lacks arm strength, but can move decently and occasionally make some things happen. So far though, Keenum is far from a pace to match his 2017 stat line and has thrown two more interceptions than touchdowns for Denver. The Broncos started out the season with two close wins over Oakland and Seattle, but have since fallen to a record of 2-3 after three straight losses. The first couple of losses were acceptable: at the Baltimore Ravens and at home against the Kansas City Chiefs in a game they could have won. However, last week’s blowout loss to the New York Jets was more alarming as the Jets were able to rush for a whopping 323 yards on the Broncos’ defense. Denver’s defense certainly isn’t without talent up front, but the proof is in the performance. This week, the Rams will be likely to test Denver’s defense early and often with RB Todd Gurley and some playaction. When the Broncos have the ball, they will look to return the favor though. Denver has a very capable pair of rookie running backs in Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman that will look to replicate the success that the Seattle Seahawks had on the ground against the Rams last Sunday. The Broncos will likely be without right tackle Jared Veldheer. Left tackle Garett Bolles is dinged up but should be able to play.Keenum also has a solid stable of receivers in Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas, and rookies Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton. Saunders has been the most productive, snatching 33 receptions for 386 yards so far.If Denver’s offense generates a rhythm on the ground, they could become a handful. On defense, the Broncos are nowhere near previous ‘No Fly Zone’ levels, but still have plenty of talent, including: linebackers Von Miller Aaron Donald Jersey Elite , Bradley Chubb, and Todd Davis, nose tackle Domata Peko, and defensive backs Chris Harris and former-Ram Darian Stewart. Adam “PacMan” Jones will likely be sidelined due to injury this week as the Broncos will look to find some way to handle the Rams triple threat of Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp at wide receiver assuming the latter two are upgraded on the injury report after suffering concussions in Week 5.At the end of the day, the Broncos’ and Head Coach Vance Joseph’s backs are against the wall at Mile High. It’s going to be snowing, so this isn’t a game to sleep on at all. If the Rams are able to put the Broncos away nice and clean on the road, then they appear even more dominant than previously suspected. But this may be another delightfully stressful slugfest not so dissimilar to last week’s victory at Puget Sound. Although Matt Nagy has yet to coach a game for the Chicago Bears, he is proving as adept as a veteran coach at keeping trade secrets.After a week of avoiding certainties, Nagy all but confirmed new outside linebacker Khalil Mack would play against Green Bay.And even then, he avoided clarity."Yeah, there's a good shot of playing," Nagy said Friday. "We just don't know how much."Asked if Mack could play the entire game rushing Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers off the edge, Nagy said, "I don't know. Maybe."The only comment Mack made on his availability came Wednesday when he said: "You'll see on Sunday. Under the lights."Mack brought his pass rush ability to Chicago from Oakland in a trade Saturday after holding out of training camp and preseason Authentic Todd Gurley Jersey , so questions about his conditioning had to be answered before he could play.Also, he had to take a crash course in coordinator Vic Fangio's defense. Linebackers coach Brandon Staley has been assisting him in this.It's not a common situation, but Fangio said the Rams' Aaron Donald did something similar last year after a holdout. He played and produced immediately."Aaron Donald was in that same predicament last year, signing right before his first game that he played with a new defense," Fangio said. "He played 48 plays, some other guys have played in the 20s. "I think everybody's individual but it's something we're going to have to manage and keep an eye on."Teammates have been impressed with what they've seen on the practice field"He's a person that could change the whole dynamic, you know?" nose tackle Eddie Goldman said. "A lot of attention's going to be on him and that'll open up a lot of opportunities for me and other guys on the D-line, too."Goldman helped to cement the future of the defense Friday by signing a four-year contract extension through four-year contract extension through the 2022 season. He would have been a free agent after this season.With the potential of Mack causing havoc, Goldman sees a chance for the Bears to remain viable defensively long term."I think the oldest guy is like 28, 29, so a lot of guys could be here for a long time, and hopefully build a legacy that we hope to remember," Goldman said.NOTESGuard Kyle Long did not practice Friday, but is not on the injury report as he was given a veteran's day off. ... Defensive back DeAndre Houston-Carson has been ruled out for the game due to back and forearm injuries after missing practice all week. ... Tight end Daniel Brown is doubtful due to a shoulder injury.
