Repeat after me, Denver Broncos fans: The Broncos have a pass rush.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? We’ve only been waiting ten years or so to say it.

The Broncos have tallied 21.0 sacks on the season, good for first place in the AFC and tied for first in the NFL. No one in the NFL gets after the quarterback better than the Broncos.

Leading the charge of the Sack City Revolution is one Elvis Dumervil, linebacker. Dumervil has 10 sacks in six games, including 2.0 in Monday night’s win — a figure that projects to 26.5 sacks by season’s end.

In other words, four full sacks over the league record set by Michael Strahan in 2001.

With games against the sack-able Steelers, Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers, and Eagles still on the horizon for the Broncos, it’s entirely possible that, if he can stay healthy, Dumervil will threaten to break a record that previously stood for 17 years.

Either way, these sacks are turning into big W’s for the Broncos. We’re sure Elvis is just fine with that.

    I think he could get there, he might even shatter that record on the pace the broncos are going. he is going to have to make up for the Colts game where he may not get any.

    Should have been more sacks on the last drive for the Chargers so there were plenty left out there.

    Way to go Dumervil. Everything was awesome yesterday. I would like to see Orton tosss to marshall some more though. He is a huge threat that needs to be utilized.

    Got to add a new comment to this story because I discovered something tonight that I believe Elvis did in this game that was never talked about. That something may just have been the single biggest play of the game too!… On the 4th and 8 play for SD in the 4th quarter, Elvis put up his hand as the ball sailed over him. Well the ball was slightly behind the receiver (Jackson I believe) and it had an ever so slight wobble to it. I was reviewing footage of the game that I recorded and slowed it down to one frame at a time. The ball ball just barely appears to have grazed the tip of his glove on his middle finger. I talking maybe 10 molecules of the ball touching 10 molecules of his glove!… This was a huge play since the bolts were only down 4 at the time and would have had 1st down near the Bronco 20 yard line late in the game… Way to go Elvis!
