Broncos: T.J. Ward
The Broncos led the league in passing last year, and that's part of what got them to the Super Bowl. On the other hand, only five teams gave up more passing yards per game than the Broncos, and that's part of why they lost the Super Bowl. No surprise, then, that one of the team's (many) offseason moves was to sign former Browns Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward. Ward is a thumper who is not only one of the best run-stopping safeties in the NFL, but can add pressure as a blitzer. With Aqib Talib roaming deep, DeMarcus Ware pressuring the QB and T.J. Ward roaming the space between, Denver's defense has a chance to be oppressive. (Getty Photo/Matt Sullivan)
