Denver using the Wildcat

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

Josh McDaniels has been lauded in his head coaching career for being prepared.

He has been impressive early Sunday against his former team, New England. For the first time, Denver broke out the Wildcat formation. The Broncos used it successfully before its opening drive breakdown when it missed a 48-yard field goal.

McDaniels was with New England last year, as offensive coordinator, when Miami exploited New England while using the Wildcat. It will be interesting to see if McDaniels uses the formation -- with rookie Knowshon Moreno getting the snap from center -- all day.
