Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The 65 yards of rushing surpassed the game total in the first two games of the year. The Bengals were one spot worse. With the Bengals losing the battle in the trenches through two weeks - 31st in the National Football League in rushing yards and last in rushing yards allowed - it's hard for me to pick against the Broncos here.

Siemian had another one-yard touchdown pass on play-action to John Phillips prior to this play to Demaryius Thomas, but there's no video now available for that at this time.

This is great concentration by Sanders, a phenomenal receiver, to help out his quarterback and make a big play.

Missed opportunities will be the story of this week, as the Bengals dropped multiple interceptions, several passes and lost a key fumble in what should've been a very winnable game.

"'If we can get a win here in this environment, that says a lot about our team", Siemian said.

After Denver's Pro Bowl receiving duo - Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders - took to the media earlier in the week to decry their lack of statistical production and inefficiency in the redzone, head coach Gary Kubiak heeded their call. Dalton was 21 of 31 for 206 yards and one interception - of the those yards came on the last desperate drive. "We know we've got to scratch, claw and fight to get to 2-2 and get ourselves in a position to not have a negative first month of the season". Although neither the Broncos nor the Pittsburgh Steelers thoroughly outplayed Cincinnati, Marvin Lewis' team failed to deliver in the biggest moments.

In the long run, unless you have the likes of Drew Brees behind center, a one dimensional offense will not be effective in today's NFL.

I think that the upcoming match, as well as the previous five meetings at the Emirates, complete with heads totals less than 2. However, the game is remembered more for the angry shoving match that took place on the touchline between the two managers.

The Broncos wide receivers made some rare ripples in the pond this past week when they said they needed the ball more. Last week against Indianapolis, his strip sack of Andrew Luck led to a 15-yard fumble return touchdown by Shane Ray that put the game out of reach.

Siemian is 13 of 24 for 144 yards and touchdowns, while Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is 5 of 8 for 63 yards as 18 of the team's 26 plays have been runs.

If Cincinnati can't get traction running the ball, the alternative will be throwing into the teeth of a secondary which hasn't allowed an opposing quarterback to post a passer rating of 100-plus since Week 12 of 2014 - a span of 28 games, including playoffs.

Nine penalties hurt Cincinnati (1-2), which finally got its running game going with 97 yards and two touchdowns from Jeremy Hill.

3-AND-OUT: The Bengals forced a 3-and-out on the Denver's first possession.

In 2016, Anderson has been the workhorse in the backfield for the Broncos, running the ball 40 times in two games and scoring three of Denver's four offensive touchdowns. Wade Phillips' unit sacked Dalton four times and picked him off once.

Sanders continued to be an incredible receiving threat, beating defenders for a lengthy 41-yard reception.
