The Broncos have started the season 2-0 and are traveling to Cincinnati to face the Bengals this Sunday. With them, they will be bringing a defense which has already begun to settle back into the dominating force that they were last season.

Bradley Roby, who played down the road at Ohio State while in college, is looking forward to going back and seeing all of his fans from his college playing days.

“It will be cool. It’s always interesting to me to go to Ohio just to see all the fans that still remember me,” Roby told Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of Afternoon Drive on AM 1340 | FM 104.7. “All the Ohio State fans, they always show me love. It’s always cool going back there. I definitely look forward to it, and I’m excited.”

The Bengals have shown through the first two weeks that they’re a pass heavy offense, as Andy Dalton currently leads the NFL in passing yards (732). Conversely, the running game has not been there for the Bengals offense. That’s good news for Denver’s secondary.

“Anytime a team likes to pass a lot, as a DB, of course you’re going to be happy,” Roby said. “It’s more opportunities at the ball. It’s going to be a fun game. I would think they would try to run more against us, but we’ll see how it goes.”

Their top receiver, A.J. Green, has already compiled 218 receiving yards this season, most of which came against Darrelle Revis in Week 1. Roby has faced him before and doesn’t feel like he will be a problem on Sunday after being asked if he will be guarding him.

“If he comes to where I am at on the field, then I will,” Roby said. “We don’t match up against [certain] receivers. I played him last year in the playoffs. He’s one of the top receivers, for sure, but I also practice against two of the top receivers everyday in practice. It’s just another game.”

The defense for this Broncos team feels as if they haven’t received the respect they deserve after knocking down some of the top teams in the league. But after the game, they could care less what anyone has to say about their play on the field.

“I don’t think it matters, because at the end of the day, what somebody sitting at home thinks about us is not going to affect what we do out on the field,” Roby said. “It’s about what we believe and what we think. You can doubt us all year, and if we can get another ring, then I don’t care what anybody says. That’s two rings in a row [possibly]. It’s our job to go out there and show them. If they’re not respecting us, we have to go out there and take it.”
