Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips remarked that Newton "doesn't scramble a whole lot. ... He tries to throw from the pocket."
Marshall added, "In a lot of games we saw on film, Newton was just sitting back, patting the ball. We'd see two (free defenders) in the middle of the field just not doing anything."
In order to contain the dual-threat signal caller, the Broncos opted to use their extra defenders to blitz Newton and force him out of the pocket.
"We read them like a book," Ward said.
