The Orange crushed the Cowboys.
The Bronco’s ability to stop the Cowboys’ rushing attack placed the onus of the offense on the shoulders of second-year quarterback Dak Prescott, the NFL’s reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year. Captain Aqib harpooned the whale. Unable to connect in the passing game, the Cowboys were unable to get the Broncos to change their scheme.
Welcome back, Big O, to unite with the Big D against “dallas”.
Through two games, the Broncos have surrendered 104 yards rushing.
On the ground, Taylor rushed for 55 yards in eight attempts while LeSean McCoy added nine yards in 12 carries. He was one of the go-to targets for Prescott even as the Cowboys abandoned the run game.
A great number of Dallas Cowboys reflected on Sunday’s 42-17 loss at Denver by personally taking the blame for a crummy performance. The Cowboys sacked Eli Manning three times, kept the Giants out of the end zone entirely, and limited NY to just 35 total yards on the ground.
A common theme Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Siemian completed 22 of 32 for 231 yards and had touchdown passes of 10 and 6 yards to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, along with a 16-yard scoring pass to Anderson and 2 yards to tight end Virgil Green. There’s a lot of football left to be played this season.
The game has a scheduled start time of 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below). The Cardinals have beaten the Cowboys four consecutive times, including a 28-17 win in 2014.
It’ obvious what Broncos head coach Vance Joseph want to do this season.
The game was interrupted late in the first quarter when weather forecasters warned of a severe lightning storm in the area and officials ordered both teams to leave the field and wait out the storm in their respective locker rooms. Each team was led by a different quarterback, the Broncos by Peyton Manning and the Cowboys by Tony Romo.
The Broncos are playing with a passion and skill not witnessed since the postseason that produced the Super Bowl 50 championship. He had just found Demaryius Thomas for a deep strike. However, Siemian hit C.J. Anderson for a long touchdown, which was mostly the work of Anderson, and then hit Sanders again prior to the half.
A note: The Broncos haven’t lost yet this exhibition and regular season.
TURNING POINT: When you get hammered the way Denver hammered the Cowboys on Sunday, it’s hard to find a true turning point.
On NFL Network after the game Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson said Elliott “quit on his team”, but pointed more to Elliott’s sideline demeanor than the effort on the interceptions. Elliott stopped. Elliott did not chase the Denver interceptor, though he certainly would be instructed by any coach in the history of football to pursue the man who intercepted the ball until he was down. Miller, featured on the back cover of the Broncos’ media guide, will be inducted into the Ring of Fame on November 10.
He slipped Cole Beasley’s tackle and followed linebacker Brandon Marshall’s handsome block of Prescott into the south end zone, where he jumped into the stands, exhausted by enjoying every last bit of what he called “an all-around complete ballgame from the Broncos”. He is in recovery.
