CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – Broncos safety Darian Stewart joined CBS4 Broncos analyst Mark Schlereth and CBS4 Sports Anchor Michael Spencer at The ViewHouse Centennial Monday night for Xfinity Monday Live.
“It’s finally good to get that first one out of the way,” said Stewart in regards to the Broncos 21-20 win over Carolina on Thursday night.
The Broncos celebrated their Super Bowl 50 victory prior to kickoff.
“It was great. It was a dream come true. To celebrate it with the fans, it was amazing,” said Stewart.
The Broncos have received a lot of criticism for their defensive play, including several hard hits on Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
Several people have labeled the Broncos “dirty” for their hits on Newton, but Stewart took exception to that label.
“We’re going to still just be us and keep being aggressive,” said Stewart. “I don’t think we should change anything that we’ve been doing. That’s what made us world champs.”
The Broncos will try to reverse the curse of the Colts on Sunday. Indianapolis has beaten Denver in the last two meetings, including a 27-24 Colts win on Nov. 8, 2015.
“We lost to them these past two years, so it’s a must that we start fast,” Stewart said of playing Indianapolis.
One key to victory will be containing Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck threw for 385 yards and 4 touchdowns, but the Colts lost to the Detroit Lions in Week 1.
“I thought he was confident. He looked comfortable in the pocket,” said Stewart. “It’s going to be a great matchup this week.”
The Broncos and Colts will kickoff at 2:25 p.m. in Denver on Sunday afternoon. Watch the game on CBS4!
