and see­ing space in front of them and not go­ing through the last sec­ond of look­ing the ball in.”

But Sher­man, a four­time Pro Bowl player in his eighth sea­son, hasn’t helped in this depart­ment ei­ther. He en­tered the sea­son with 32 ca­reer in­ter­cep­tions, most among all ac­tive play­ers since 2011, but has yet to record one in 2018.

In Sher­man’s de­fense, he isn’t get­ting that many op­por­tu­ni­ties since op­po­nents are choos­ing to tar­get Witherspoon in cov­er­age more.

Never has Sher­man recorded fewer than two in­ter­cep­tions in a sea­son. Is he aware of that stat? “Yeah, (but) the ball will get where it gets,” he replied.

Den­ver quar­ter­back Case Keenum threw 10 in­ter­cep­tions through the Bron­cos’ first eight games, but he hasn’t been picked off a sin­gle time over the past four.

NOTES: Re­ceiver Mar­quise Good­win prac­ticed for the sec­ond day in a row and looks poised to re­turn to the lineup af­ter miss­ing the past two games while be­ing away from the team for per­sonal rea­sons. With fel­low start­ing re­ceiver Pierre Gar­con (knee) not hav­ing prac­ticed Thurs­day, there seems a de­cent chance that rookie Dante Pet­tis draws the start op­po­site Good­win against Den­ver. Pet­tis is com­ing off a break­out game against Seat­tle (5 catches, 129 yards, 2 TD’s). … Safety An­tone Exum (knee), cor­ner­back K'Waun Wil­liams (knee) and line­backer Mal­colm Smith (Achilles) were lim­ited in Thurs­day’s work­out.
