Default 000 yards for Broncos?,Can Bethel High grad C.J. Anderson get to 1

Can Bethel High grad C.J. Anderson get to 1,000 yards for Broncos?

The Denver Broncos have nothing to play for Sunday against Kansas City except pride and personal milestones such as C.J. Anderson adding “1,000-yard rusher “ to his resume.

The fifth-year running back and Jesse Bethel High grad is 54 yards shy of becoming the franchise’s first 1,000-yard rusher since Knowshon Moreno in 2013.

“It’s huge,” said Anderson, who is also 60 minutes away from reaching another one of his goals: playing a full season healthy.

“Some people forget I had knee surgery last year. So, coming away with 1,000 for this season coming off of knee surgery I think is an accomplished and successful season, staying healthy,” Anderson said. “We have one game to do it, I know the big boys want me to get it and we want to get it.”

That would give the Broncos (5-10) something to celebrate in a soured seasonthat in many ways was their worst since their awful AFL days in the 1960s.

“I think that’s a positive in our season,” Anderson said. “At the same time — we know the Chiefs, they’re going to play man to man — so hopefully we can find a way to get D.T. his sixth straight (1,000-yard receiving season), too.”

Demaryius Thomas is 108 yards shy of that milestone, but he’ll likely be catching passes from Paxton Lynch and not Brock Osweiler on Sunday, so odds are better Anderson will reach his milestone.

Lynch threw for 41 yards in his one start this season, last month against Oakland, when he sprained his left ankle, an injury that has sidelined him ever since. Coach Vance Joseph said Lynch will start Sunday if his ankle allows.

The Chiefs (9-6) will start first-round pick QB Patrick Mahomes , and the Broncos want to get another look at their disappointing 2016 first-round draft choice before heading into an offseason, when upgrading the quarterback position is job No. 1 for general manager John Elway.

The impending roster shakeup might sweep Anderson out of Denver.

Anderson is completing the second season of his four-year, $18 million deal, and his salary jumps from $2.9 million to $4.5 million in each of the next two seasons. There’s no dead cap money involved if the Broncos decide to move on from Anderson to Devontae Booker or rookie De’Angelo Henderson.

Anderson has maintained his strength thanks to boxing and biking he did in the offseason as he recovered from knee surgery.

“I think I’m peaking at the right time,” Anderson said. “I’ll be 27 in February. I think that helps. I’m in my prime years and it sucks to waste one.”

Anderson said he wants to reach 1,000 yards because he wants to catch up to — or at least keep up with — Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le’Veon Bell, the only fifth-year running back who has better career numbers than he does.

That’s a point of pride for Anderson, who wasn’t one of the 23 running backs drafted in 2013.

“I want to get 1,000 yards this season and stack them up every season I play from here on out,” Anderson said.

Bell is in the midst of his third 1,000-yard rushing season but lacks a Super Bowl ring — Anderson has one. Anderson might not have been sweating it out this week had the Broncos stuck to the run earlier in the season. The Broncos are 5-0 when they run more than they pass, 0-10 when they don’t.

Reaching 1,000 yards is in some ways a bigger deal than ever in an era when teams split the snaps with bigger backfields and rely more on their air attacks than ground games.

“That’s a tough stinking position to play, so even today to put together that amount of yardage I think is still a pretty big thing,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “That position, it’s rough. You’re taking some pretty good hits. And so to get that mileage and stay healthy to get the mileage I still think is quite an accomplishment.”

Of the seven 1,000-yard rushers so far — Bell, Todd Gurley, Kareem Hunt, LeSean McCoy, Jordan Howard, Mark Ingram and Melvin Gordon — only Howard’s Bears aren’t in the playoff mix.

Jacksonville’s Leonard Fournette (971) and Baltimore’s Alex Collins (895) are closing in on 1,000, and their teams have either clinched a playoff berth or can do so this weekend.

“That’s the shame of it,” Anderson said of his healthiest, most productive season yet, “is that won’t matter come January.”

Default Brandon Marshall sets tone as defense delivers

allowing Defensive Coordinator Joe Woods to achieve something the Broncos' seven previous defensive coordinators did not.,It was the Broncos' first shutout in 12 years

... It marked the first time since Sept. 19,Authentic Joe Thomas Jersey2010 that a team held an opponent to fewer than two passing first downs in a game, 2012 -- but none had limited a team to a single first down., according to pro-football-reference.com. That day, the Titans held the Steelers without a first down through the air. Thirteen teams held opponents to two passing first downs in the seven years that followed -- including the Broncos against the Chiefs on Dec. 30

... It was the first time in 46 years -- since a 27-0 win at Cleveland on Oct. 24, 1971 -- that the Broncos shut out an opponent while holding them to 100 or fewer yards. Denver is the first team to hold a foe to 100 or fewer yards in a shutout since the San Diego Chargers stifled the Chiefs in a Dec. 12, limiting them to 67 yards in a 31-0 win. Thirty-eight shutouts passed without a team holding its opponent to as few yards as the Broncos did to the Jets Sunday., 2010 game

... It was the first time since Jan. 3, making this the first time in 744 regular-season or postseason games that a defense held a team to such a meager output., 2015 that any defense had held an opponent to 100 or fewer yards. The last team to do that was Carolina against Arizona in the 2014 wild-card round

... It was also the first time since Jan. 3,Authentic Daryl Williams Jersey, 2003 against the Chargers -- which was also the last time the Broncos held anyone to 100 or fewer yards.,Authentic Kurt Coleman Jersey2015 that any team had held an opposing offense to fewer than 60 yards rushing and passing. This game was also the first time the Broncos accomplished the twin sub-60 trick since Nov. 16

Such numbers are the product of a team effort. Denver's defense has enjoyed plenty of superlative performancesAuthentic Mario Addison Jersey limiting turnovers and ensuring the defense never had to deal with any short fields., but Sunday's work was coupled with the offense and special teams playing mistake-free football

Denver came into the game with the league's worst average drive-start position for its opponents -- at their own 34.7-yard line,>womens Andrew Norwell Jersey the Jets never began a drive any closer to Denver territory than at their own 25-yard line., 4.1 yards worse than the No. 31 team in that statistic (Green Bay). But with no turnovers and a solid 41.6-yard net average for punter Riley Dixon

"It makes a huge differenceAuthentic Graham Gano Jersey,Authentic Isaiah Crowell Jersey, the offense doesn't have to do anything but get 20 yards and they're in field-goal range.," outside linebacker Shane Ray said. "Football is a game of inches. Field position always matters. If you're starting off at the 50-yard line

you've got to go the whole field on us. And there's not many teams in the league that can do that.","Battling that instead of a team having to drive from the 25

With long fields and the offense playing efficiently, the defense was free to attack, playing with a lead from its first snap to the final gun., and it did so from the outsetwomens Graham Gano Jersey,

Leading the way was inside linebacker Brandon Marshall, when he read the flow of the play on a pitch to Elijah McGuire and shot into the backfield behind right tackle Brandon Shell and fullback Lawrence Thomas to arrive at McGuire just as he began making his turn upfield behind Shell., whose aggressiveness paid off on the first defensive snapwomens Joe Thomas Jersey,

The result was the first of three tackles behind the line of scrimmage that Marshall recorded on Jets running plays Sunday.

Two plays later, setting up Adam Gotsis' fumble recovery and a touchdown two plays later., an unblocked Marshall stripped the football from Jets quarterback Josh McCownAuthentic Andrew Norwell Jersey,'

Marshall's play was the result of increased scrutiny he placed on himself last week.'womens Isaiah Crowell Jersey,

"I did some self-study this week to see how I could improve my game,womens Daryl Williams Jersey, more calculated risks.,womens Kurt Coleman Jersey,'Marshall said. "I felt like I just haven't been as aggressive this year in coverage and in the run game. So I just decided that I would shoot my shot more. I would take more chances

"It obviously paid off."womens Mario Addison Jersey"

The fast start set the tone, Authentic Charles Johnson Jersey, and with the offense doing its job, prevented the Jets from finding any rhythm and earned the one prize it had been missing from its dominant run of recent years: a shutout.”,womens Charles Johnson Jersey,' the defense attacked at will

Default Texans safety Andre Hal: 'I wasn't playing how I was supposed to play'

Texans free safety Andre Hal came to a tough realization last season during a frustrating time when he was missing tackles he normally makes routinely, taking poor angles in pass coverage.

After briefly losing his starting job to Corey Moore late in the season,womens Kevin White Jersey, Hal analyzed what was happening and realized he was overthinking things and wasn't playing with his usual confidence and instincts.

It all led to Hal questioning his style of play and not being as impactful as the previous season, when he broke through and intercepted a career-high and team-high four passes.

Hal ultimately climbed back atop the depth chart in time for the playoffs and enters training camp next week at The Greenbrier in West Virginia as a starter for the NFL's top-ranked defense.Authentic Connor Shaw Jersey

"It's a learning experience,Authentic Hroniss Grasu Jersey" Hal said. "I learned a lot. I wasn't playing how I was supposed to play. I came back up. I got through that. It's adversity. The only way you get better is you got to get through something.

"I was trying too hard,womens Kendall Wright Jersey, not letting it come to me. Once I let it go and let things come to me,>womens Markus Wheatont Jersey I started playing better."

A converted cornerback and former seventh-round draft pick from Vanderbilt, Hal finished the season with 48 tackles,womens Walter Payton Jersey, one sack and two interceptions.

He started 11 of 15 games played, missing a loss at Green Bay with an illness.

The Texans finished second overall in pass defense as veteran safety Quintin Demps led all NFL safeties with six interceptions. Now with the Chicago Bears after signing a three-year, $13.5 million contract during free agency, Demps' advice was instrumental to Hal in engineering a turnaround to a season that was going in the wrong direction. The two friends have remained in touch with Demps offering him counsel on how to approach this upcoming season.

"Thank God for Q," Hal said. "He taught me a lot about how to be a pro. I talk to Q all the time. He tells me to just be me.

"When I was going through my little slump, he would tell me I'm a great player and to just play ball. He helped me learn from my mistakes."Authentic Eddie Goldman Jersey,

Heading into his fourth NFL season, Hal is the Texans' most experienced safety. He's recorded 105 career tackles,Authentic Kevin White Jersey,' six interceptions and 21 passes defended.

Hal has a simple plan for this season.Authentic Walter Payton Jersey,

"What I'm going to do this year is do me,womens Eddie Goldman Jersey>," Hal said. "That's what I'm going to do this year. I'm not worrying about being a starter. I'm just making plays and being a playmaker.

"Just angles,womens Hroniss Grasu Jersey, really coming down and practicing it and going out there and really focusing on tackling. Just knowing plays like the back of my hand,Authentic Kendall Wright Jersey, I think I'll be better this year."

Listed on the roster at 5-10,womens Connor Shaw Jersey,'''195 pounds, his athleticism and aggressiveness allows him to overcome that lack of size. , Hal is smaller than the prototypical safety. However

Hal has a big upper body and spend a lot of time lifting weights. He's put on roughly five pounds this offseason and says he's up to 197 pounds.Authentic Markus Wheatont Jersey,

"We took a corner and made him a safety, and he had to go through growing pains, how he needs to cover and be able to match up on receivers and tight ends. Then he'll come up and tackle as well. That bodes well for a safety."," assistant head coach Romeo Crennel said. "He's adapting nicely and understanding where he needs to fitAuthentic Jordan Howard Jersey,

The Texans didn't make any big moves at safety this offseason. They return Hal and Moore as starters and are hoping that former fifth-round draft pick K.J. Dillon makes a sound recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last season as a rookie. Injury-prone safety Lonnie Ballentine is also in the mix for playing time.womens Jordan Howard Jersey,

but neither were signed to contracts.,The Texans met with former Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams this spring and auditioned former New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles safety Jaiquawn Jarrett during a minicamp

The Texans are counting on Hal to provide leadership at a position bereft of many proven commodities.

"It happens naturally, they follow me. I'm going to lead by example."," Hal said. "It's not going to happen by itself. I'm not going to force it. if they follow me

Default Andre Hal Fitting Into His Leadership Role

expectations are rising for him personally,Entering his fourth season with the Houston Texans, safety Andre Hal is now shaping up to be the bonafide leader of the safety group.
