Drew Lock, Denver Broncos
Week 2 matchup: at Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday, Sept. 20
Sacked four times
The pass rush of the Titans was immediately upgraded when they added Jadeveon Clowney. Even with the huge addition, they were unable to get to Lock in Week 1. The offensive line of the Broncos did not allow a sack in their first game.
That is going to be tough to do against the Pittsburgh Steelers with players like T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree looming. The Steelers led the league in sacks in 2019. They are fast and know how to get to the quarterback.
Held under 200 yards
The Steelers might be the best defensive team in the league. Daniel Jones threw for 279 yards on Monday night but many of them came on two big plays, one to Darius Slayton and one to Saquon Barkley. Lock threw for 216 yards against the Titans.
Lock definitely missed the presence of Sutton out there. If he has to miss another game, it will be difficult to get anything going for Denver. They are a young offense all the way around and the Steelers could pin their eyes back in this one.
