Justin Simmons played a pivotal role in executing Sean Payton’s masterplan to thwart the formidable Kansas City Chiefs, led by the dynamic duo of Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.
Their impressive performance secured an unexpected victory for the Denver Broncos, thanks to their stellar defensive display.
Simmons recently shared the keys to their success, as reported by NFL on CBS.
Simmons pointed out, “If you watch most of my picks against Patrick Mahomes, it’s because our pass rush is exceptional.”
He went on to acknowledge the efforts of Russell Wilson and the Broncos’ offense.
Simmons and the Broncos defense suffocated Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offensive linemen.
In the game, Simmons recorded two tackles and made a crucial interception that thwarted Andy Reid’s strategic plans.
Joining Simmons in this defensive stand was Ja’Quan McMillan, who delivered a remarkable 4/5 tackle-to-assist ratio.
McMillan also managed to intercept one of Mahomes’ passes, showing the Broncos’ collective strength.
Limiting the Chiefs to a mere 275 total yards was a remarkable achievement for Payton and the Broncos.
However, despite this triumph, there is still room for improvement as they seek to enhance their three-win and five-loss record.
The league is now watching closely to see if they can replicate their successful defensive schemes against another potent offensive force, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills.
