VIDEO: Aqib Talib Is Basically The Denver Broncos Entire Offense
October 18 / Tanya Ray Fox / SportsGrid
Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib has been an invaluable part of their defense since he joined the team in 2014, but lately he's been almost as important to their offense as well. Prior to the Broncos' Week 6 game against the Browns, Talib had eight interceptions - three of which were pick-sixes - for a total of 122 yards.
Well you can add another interception and 63 yards for a touchdown to those totals, as Talib once again made his way into the end zone, helping out the struggling Broncos offense. Here he is with the pick-six at the start of the second quarter in Cleveland:
To be fair, there is no quarterback in the NFL that deserves the benefit of being carried by his defense more than Peyton Manning. He's accumulated basically all of the regular season passing records, and now that he's 55 39 years old with a titanium neck that is the result of being brutalized over the years behind shitty offensive lines, he is finally slowing down.
You might even say that Talib is Manning's guardian angel of sorts. If there were ever a time for dear old Peyton to have a defense that can carry his team through the first half of the season, it's now. He should definitely be buying Talib a nice seafood dinner after this game. Although they probably shouldn't go out for seafood until they're out of Cleveland.
