Broncos Backfield No Longer The NFL's Powerhouse

Terrell Davis. Clinton Portis. Olandis Gary. Mike Anderson. Reuben Droughns. Even Tatum Bell. They all bullied their way through the holes bored by the nimble offensive line's storied zone blocking scheme, racking up yards, deflating defenses and piling up points.

No more.

Now, the Broncos' grandiose ground game has been, well, grounded.

The Broncos (4-4) have just one 100-yard rusher in their last 11 games, and they're well on their way to a second straight season without a 1,000-yard rusher, something that happened just once in coach Mike Shanahan's first 12 seasons in Denver.
