4.) Jordan Phillips
Sticking with the defensive line route, Jordan Phillips has been underwhelming this season in more of an up-and-down production.
While he rotates in the starting lineup and in the overall defensive line rotation, the film doesn’t show him making the best impact in both stopping the run and creating interior pressure. Not only will Phillips need to push back to get into the face of Wilson, but also worry about the versatility of Jaleel McLaughlin and the powerback in Javonte Williams.
Overall, the defensive line in general needs to step it up and be a factor in helping contain the Denver offense. If you win in the trenches, you always have a shot in winning the game. Phillips will not need to be a full time starter with Linval Joseph in the lineup, but Phillips will have to create the double team blocks to allow a linebacker to fly into the backfield to make a play.
