Broncos Fifth Quarter: Rookie Caiden Stern makes the most of seven snaps against Baltimore

on further review

1. Seven busy photos of Stern. Rookie S. Caiden Stern played only seven of the Broncos’ 73 snaps against Baltimore, but he took full advantage. A week after his first interception, Stern dismissed Ravens QB Lamar Jackson twice – in 2.44 seconds on six-man pressure (unblocked) and 2.41 seconds on seven-man pressure (unblocked). Stern was the first NFL rookie defensively with two sack games since Pittsburgh’s Mike Hilton in 2016. But as coach Vic Fangio put it, Stern’s best play was a pass break-up from 44 yards, when he released his man. Ravens WR Sammy Watkins.

2. Sending pressure. The Broncos ran five or more players on Jackson’s 60.3% drop-back (26 out of 43), the highest rate for Fangio’s tenure. The previous high rate was 44.9% for Buffalo last year and the high blitz number was 22. The Broncos ran five players 13 times, six players 11 times and seven players twice. Jackson completed 20, 49, 14, 17, 13 and 32 yards against extra runners. The Broncos scored a total of 10 “interruptions” – three sacks, four knockdowns and three pressures. OLB Von Miller’s split with DL McTelvin Agim made Jackson his 55th quarterback against whom to post at least half a sack.

3. Striking Downfield. QB Teddy Bridgewater was 0 out of 3 on attempts traveling at least 16 “air” yards and QB Drew Locke was 1 in 5 for 32 yards (to WR Cortland Sutton with less than a minute in play). To complete).

4. Javonte’s thunder. A breakdown of RB Javonte Williams’ 31-yard carry that set up the Broncos’ only touchdown. First of 40 and -10 of Ravens. CB Taven Young beat Sutton’s block attempt, but missed a tackle at 40. … Williams left on the line. … OLB Tyus Bowser missed an arm tackle on 34. … CB Marlon Humphrey jumps onto Williams’ back on 30. … CB Anthony Everett begins to go football at 23. … WR Tim Patrick gets Everett out of the way 19. … OLB Odafe Oweh helps Humphrey take Williams down on 9. A splendid play.

5. Base Defense Thrust. In their first three games, the Broncos played a combined 30 snaps in their base defense (3 DL-2 OLB-2 ILB-4 DB). But in an attempt to hem the Ravens in the run game, the Broncos played 46 snaps in “base” and another seven in “heavy base” front (4 DL-3 OLB-4 DB). He played only 19 sub-packages (over 4 dB) snaps. Against the run, the Broncos had seven “stuff” (one or fewer yards). Miller led with 1 1/2 accessories.

6. Crows wreak havoc. Baltimore ran five or more players on 16 of the Broncos’ 44 drop-backs (36.4%). The Broncos allowed season highs in sacks (five) and total disruptions (15 – four knockdowns and six pressures in addition to sacks). Booked for the sacks were Patrick, RT Bobby Massey, LT Garrett Bowles, RG Netten Muti, C Lloyd Cushberry and Patrick. It was a planning error for Patrick Sack to ask him to block Bowser.
