Through two games, Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson sits second in the NFL in rushing yards. Sits is a bit of a misnomer, as Anderson has been anything but still through the first two weeks.

With 199 yards, Anderson trails only Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt for the NFL lead.

Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro caught up with the Broncos workhorse back to find out how he’s feeling, and if he’s up for carrying such a heavy load all season. Anderson says with more touches comes more opportunities. He took full advantage of those opportunities Sunday.
