Broncos running back C.J. Anderson refuses to overlook the Giants

Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson will not overlook the New York Giants.

He knows they haven’t won yet this year. He doesn’t care.

“We know the Giants are 0-5,” Anderson said, per Zac Stevens of BSN. “But we also know they have Pro Bowl players.”

To be fair, some of those Pro Bowl players are out. Wide receivers Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall are both done for the season with injuries.

Anderson doesn’t want the team to take this game lightly just because of that.

“If you still don’t show up you’re gonna get your butts kicked,” he said, per Rod Mackey of 9News. “No looking past.”

He’s saying all the right things. Does he believe them? That’s going to be the key for the Broncos.

After all, it was suggested that the game against the Buffalo Bills was a trap game. The Broncos had just won big against the Dallas Cowboys and the Bills shouldn’t have been much of a challenge. Coach Vance Joseph said that the trap game talk was disrespectful, but Denver went out and lost, looking flat as they did it.

Now, they’re coming off of a win over the Oakland Raiders, perhaps their most bitter rival. It was an ugly win, but it was a win. They know the Giants shouldn’t be able to touch them. If they play like that, though, they run the risk of giving the Giants their first win of the year. They’re bound to win at some point, but the Broncos absolutely need to make sure it’s not in a stunning upset this Sunday.
