Broncos biggest worry come Sunday Whos n

What if I told you that despite all of the injuries Lance Dunbar Jersey the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots have suffered this year it is the most recent one that is going to have the biggest impact on Sunday's AFC title game?Rob Gronkowski. Von Miller. Vince Wilfork. Ryan Clady. Jerod Mayo.The list of casualties for both teams is extensive and impre sive and I don't mean that in a good way. Frankly, it's amazing both teams are even in this game but they persevered and never allowed the injuries they've suffered to be an excuse.Yet despite all those big names going down throughout the season, the difference in this game very po sibly could be the torn ACL that Broncos cornerback Chris Harris suffered on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.That's right, the Sterling Shepard Jersey absence of a guy the majority of NFL fans probably haven't even heard of could tip the scale this weekend and that's because Harris excels at the all-important nickel corner position, matching up with the opposing team's slot wide receiver.Third-down conversion rate is one of the most telling statistics as it relates to wins and lo ses in the NFL. A disproportionate number of those third downs comes down to the one-on-one matchup between the nickel corner and slot receiver. That's why I believe those two positions have become two of the most 10 important for each team. The matchup is the focus of a large percentage of third downs because the slot receiver usually runs "option" routes, which give him the opportunity to break off his route in different directions based upon the leverage of the nickel corner. Covering these guys is as tough a task as there is in the NFL and there aren't many corners that really do it well.Harris is one of the few that does. No matter how the Broncos Will Sutton Jersey try to replace him, there is going to be a big drop off. The Chargers exposed Quentin Jammer and the Broncos' secondary in the second half of Sunday's AFC divisional round. The Patriots will certainly attempt to take advantage of them as well.The Patriots have the perfect group to make the most of Harris absence. Tom Brady is arguably the most proficient third-down pa Derek Carrier Jersey ser to his slot wide receivers in NFL history and he has two good ones this year in Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Add it all up for a Broncos defense that will likely find itself in a bunch of "third-and-mediums" as a result of New England's power running game and it spells trouble for Denver. Big trouble.You might not know much about Harris now, but my strong suspicion is you'll be well aware of him after Sunday because he will be conspicuous by his absence.TUCKER VIDEOS:More on BroncosRunning game key in playoffsUndercla smen shouldn't hesitate turning proMental errors cost Chargers
