Lack of Pass Rush
The Broncos’ defense did not have as much success rushing the passer against the 49ers as they did against the Seahawks last week. 49er quarterbacks were pressured on just 19.4% of their drop-backs (seven of 36), compared to 42% versus Seattle. The lone exception was Sione Fua (+4.3), whose performance was one of the best we have seen from him in his career. Although he is not known as much of a pass rusher, he made his presence known with four hurries coming against 49ers’ guard Dillon Farrell (-4.8). His performance helps his chances of earning a roster spot, but how much further does he have to go with so many returning interior defensive linemen from last season?
