Playing against opponents on Sunday is tough, but when you beat yourself, it becomes much more difficult.

In an interview with Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7, Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall says he simply doesn’t know why his team, losers of five straight games, is playing so poorly of late.

“We’re beating ourselves as a team,” Marshall said. “As a defense, I don’t know why we are playing this way.”

Marshall does say that the defense isn’t worn down, but that they’re simply not playing good football.

“I would never say we get worn down,” Marshall said. “I would never speak that or say that. We’re just not playing good enough football — that’s all it is.”
