ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (The Sports Xchange) – If the Denver Broncos are to disrupt Tom Brady and the
New England Patriots in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, they must get the inside pass rush
going.

It doesn’t matter if that is accomplished by moving Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware over the A-gaps from
time to time or supplementing their three-technique defensive ends with blitzes from inside
linebackers Brandon Marshall and Danny Trevathan.

“A lot of quarterbacks don’t like pressure up the middle, so it’s one of those things that you just have to
keep doing that we’ve been doing all year,” said defensive end Malik Jackson. “We have a great
rotation, me, [DE Derek] Wolfe, [NT Sylvester] ‘Sly’ [Williams], [DE] Antonio [Smith] and [DE] Vance
Walker.

“It’s just a nice little rotation with everybody being fresh, trying to put pressure on them and run to the
ball and make tackles.”

Against the Steelers on Sunday, Wolfe and Smith provided two of the Broncos’ three sacks. In the
Week 12 win over New England, Wolfe and Walker had sacks from the inside.

Denver’s three-technique ends have combined for 17 sacks over the course of the season — an
average of one per game.

“In my experience over the years, yeah, the quickest way to the quarterback is an inside guy winning,”
said Smith. “It’s not as common as outside rushers winning, but if an inside guy wins or even gets
pressure pushing the pocket back, that stops quarterbacks — stops him from being able to step up
and really follow through his throws.”

— When the Broncos met the Patriots in Week 12, Denver did not have to contend with wide receiver
Julian Edelman, which allowed the defense to focus more on covering All-Pro tight end Rob
Gronkowski.

Sunday, Denver will not have that luxury.
