DENVER (CBS/The Sports Xchange) – Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe isn’t a Pro Bowler — yet.
But he’s emerging as one of the best interior pass rushers in the game, and he has maintained his presence despite the loss of Malik Jackson, with whom he tag-teamed for most of his big plays in the previous two seasons.
Wolfe has 9.5 sacks in his last 12 games, including 1.5 in last week’s win over Indianapolis.
“At the end of the game, I think we showed how good we can be as a defense,” Wolfe said after the 34-20 win over the Colts.
The Broncos travel to Cincinnati for their first road game of the season Sunday. You can see the game at 11 a.m. on CBS4.
