This Broncos season is one of the most anticipated in team history. Despite all the excitement, there are questions and a lot of things need to go exactly right for the Denver Broncos to contend for a Super Bowl title. Here are five players that have to perform on the field for the Broncos to achieve their ultimate goal.
5. Tracy Porter
Porter, who the Broncos signed as a free agent, has the important job of playing next to one of the best cornerbacks in the league in Champ Bailey. Quarterbacks are going to test the former Saints corner a lot. Teams don't throw at Bailey much if at all. Porter has seven career interceptions including a pick-six of Peyton Manning in the Saint's Super Bowl win.
The Broncos hope to have a lot of second half leads this season so teams will have to throw the ball all over the field. Porter, along with Drayton Florence and Chris Harris, will have to make plays. If teams can just complete pass after pass, those leads will disappear very quickly.
