Denver's spiraling offense remains an easy and obvious target for fans and analysts alike, but Sunday's crash-and-burn against the Eagles had plenty to do with the team's typically stalwart defense.
"It is rock bottom. If we don't make the playoffs, that's the worst you can get," Harris said. "We can't afford to let anything else slide. Especially in our division. We gotta figure out something fast."
Said Harris: "[We're] just not good right now. Just gotta look at yourself in the mirror to see what you can do to get better. Trying to figure out how to make plays. When you're not good and you are losing and a team puts 50 on you. You gotta figure something out."
Much of that rushing yardage came in the second half, when the Broncos knew what was coming from an Eagles attack looking to wind down the clock. Even more concerning, though, was seeing Wentz masterfully draw the defense offsides with next-level, pre-snap cadence that played a part in Denver amassing an outrageous 14 penalties.
Still, this defense has been brilliant for much of the campaign, doing its best to prop up a dead-on-arrival offense that sputtered horribly Sunday with Brock Osweiler under center.
