Broncos 41-0 victory over the Rams

The Broncos played their preseason finale tonight and they absolutely whooped the Los Angeles Rams by the score of 41 to 0. The two teams held two joint practices earlier this week that were mostly dominated by the Rams, but that never carried over into the game. The Broncos dominated all three phases of the game and ultimately kept the Rams off the scoreboard. Multiple Broncos stood out tonight including a few players who entered this game fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster. So with that said, let us take a look at the winners and the very few losers from the Broncos’ 41-0 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

MVP TE Albert Okwuegbunam

After the game, head coach Sean Payton was asked about Albert O’s performance and he responded by saying “He had a big night. I mean, holy cow.”. With Okwuegbunam on the roster bubble, did he do enough to earn himself a roster spot? I think so.

However, we have to wonder if the Broncos were showcasing him to the rest of the league as a potential trade chip. It has to be either of the two scenarios because Albert O. does not deserve to be cut.Unless they’re absolutely blown away with an offer, I would keep him and use him as a mismatch pass catching weapon. He has the size and speed to make life difficult for defenders and he has improved as a blocker. Add in the injuries and losses at receiver and the Broncos cannot afford to lose him right now without getting something significant in return.

All the buzz this week was about how the Rams could not stop tight end Albert Okwuegbunam. Well, that carried over into this game where the big tight end led the Broncos in targets, catches and yards. He finished the night with 7 catches for 109 yards, and 1 touchdown which included a nice one-handed catch as well.

QB Jarrett Stidham

The first preseason game for Stidham was a rough one, but he had a bit of a bounce-back performance in week two vs. the 49ers. However, tonight, the Broncos backup quarterback impressed and showed some toughness in this one. He finished the night by completing 17 of 28 passes for 236 yards and 1 touchdown pass. He also rushed the ball once for 20 yards.

Stidham proved that he can be effective in Sean Payton’s offense if needed and was damn good tonight. He was under pressure throughout the game but showed poise in the pocket and made multiple throws down the field. He showcased his toughness in this one after taking multiple big shots to the ribs in this one, but he stayed in the game and continued to make plays.After a rough start in the preseason, this performance should help ease some concerns of Broncos fans who were concerned about him early on.

RB Jaleel McLaughlin

The star of the preseason has been undrafted rookie running back Jaleel McLaughlin and that continued in this one. The explosive and shifty runner scored his fourth touchdown of the preseason and ran the ball 10 times for 48 yards. He also added 4 receptions for 13 yards in this one and showcased his ability to contribute in the passing game. McLaughlin started this game and is the clear number three running back for the Broncos. He is locked into a roster spot and will likely have a role in the offense in this one. Javonte Williams will be eased into action and Samaje Perine is a powerful back while McLaughlin has speed and open-field ability that the other two do not have. So, I think we will see him out there come week one and making plays for the Broncos.
