“Scheffler Sunday in Denver!” CBS sportscaster Dick Enberg exclaimed after Denver Broncos tight end Tony Scheffler caught his second touchdown pass in the first half of the Broncos’ Week Two game. Denver took a 21-3 lead over the San Diego Chargers with the score en route to a controversial 39-38 victory.
The Broncos will need some more magic from Scheffler on Sunday. With the division at stake, and the Broncos on their eighth set of running backs, Jay Cutler will need Scheffler’s versatility to move the chains and attack the Chargers’ 28th-ranked pass defense.
What’s more, the Broncos are a perfect 6-0 when Tony Scheffler has four or more catches this season. They’re a putrid 2-7 when he was two catches or less.
Scheffler insists the Broncos will need to bring the proper attitude as well. In his postgame press conference after the Week 2 victory, Scheffler talked about the team’s preparation for San Diego. “We came out with the attitude that we were not going to lose the game. We worked hard all week in practice preparing for San Diego and the hard work and preparation paid off.”
Do it again, Broncos. Prepare like you know you can beat them, get Tony the football (especially in the red zone), and finish the AFC West.
