Broncos 27, Giants 13

-

Teddy Bridgewate­r threw two touchdowns passes in his first start for Denver, and the Broncos dominated possession in East Rutherford, N. J., spoiling the return of New York running back Saquon Barkley after a long ACL rehabilita­tion.

Acquired in the offseason from Carolina, Bridgewate­r completed 28 of 36 passes for

264 yards as he shared the ball with nine receivers. The 28-yearold hit Tim Patrick on a go-ahead two-yard touchdown pass with eight seconds left in the half. Bridgewate­r eluded pressure and found tight end Albert Okwuegbuna­m on a four-yard, fourthdown toss during a 16-play, 75-yard drive to open the second half, extending the lead to 17-7 with 6:48 to go in the quarter.

Melvin Gordon III added a late 70-yard touchdown run and Brandon Mcmanus kicked two field goals for the Broncos, who have had four straight losing season since winning Super Bowl 50.

Daniel Jones threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard for New York and ran for a four-yard touchdown on the final play.
