Mis­takes slow Bron­cos

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - — Nick Kos­mider, The Den­ver Post

Mene­lik Wat­son: The of­fen­sive tackle, signed by the Bron­cos in free agency, al­lowed a sack on his first play and was flagged for an il­le­gal hands to the face penalty later in the open­ing drive.

Run­ning game: The Bron­cos strug­gled to open up holes in the run­ning game, tal­ly­ing only 40 yards on 15 car­ries in the first half, an av­er­age of just 2.7 yards per carry.

Penal­ties: There was lit­tle of­fen­sive rhythm to be found for the Bron­cos for much of the game, and penal­ties did them no fa­vors. They were pe­nal­ized seven times for 46 yards in the first half alone, mis­cues that con­sis­tently stunted drives.
