Tony Carter ready to shine for Broncos against Tom Brady
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jan 19, 2014
When the Broncos line up in their base defense, Brady will likely see veteran Champ Bailey lining up opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. For Broncos cornerback Tony Carter, the hope is that two months is enough time to put one of his biggest mistakes this season behind him. The Broncos will likely try several looks, but Carter could be in the spotlight. How he plays against quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' passing attack in the AFC championship game Sunday is a bigger, more important matter. Carter was streaking downfield trying to hold off then-Patriots special teamer Marquice Cole, who had Welker in his crosshairs. Head coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio aren't about to reveal how they will replace Harris, arguably Denver's best cover corner this season.
