Normally I do not do a keys to victory in preseason the games mean nothing so there is very little planning but, with this being my first go round with the Bear Goggles On team I thought why not. This game marks the return of Peyton Manning and his first in a Broncos uniform. Denver a year ago was a team that had a strong defense and a tight end who played quarterback.
This year expectations are high in the Mile High city, which leads me to keys of the game.
PRESSURE THE QUARTERBACK
We will only see Manning for one or two series if we pressure him they will be quick ones. I am thinking when Caleb Hannie finds the field that the defense would like to thank him for his help last year. Get to the QB get the win.
PROTECT JAY CUTLER
You will notice this will be a theme of keys to victory until the line can show that it need not be. During the seven game winning streak Cutler was putting up eye popping numbers mostly due to the fact that he was not on his back. Keep new daddy Jay clean he will do the rest with his new toys.
Nothing is worse in football then a preseason injury.
With all that being said I think we will see a Bears victory 24 to 13. When the games count the keys will have a little more meat on the bone for you. Let me know what you think and your scores for the game. As always…
