So, with a familiar face in Case Keenum starting at QB for the #Browns on #TNF, just curious who'd you rather see taking snaps for the #Broncos?
HAPPY #MileHighBasketball SEASON OPENER!
Nuggets pick up where they left off, taking on the team that knocked them out of the playoffs, the Phoenix Suns. Game is on ESPN - So everyone can watch!
⁉️SO! With the opener tonight, what are your season predictions for the #Nuggets?
Justin Simmons opens with:
"This was a tough game. Simply put, we got our butts whooped"
Teddy Bridgewater opens his postgame presser saying,
"when you win you point the fingers at your teammates, when you lose you point the thumb at yourself. Today I point the thumb at my myself"
Also says, "it's one of those days that you’re happy you have a Thursday night game"
After opening with 3 straight wins, the Broncos suffer their 3rd straight loss.
How ya feeling, #BroncosCountry ??
THIRD interception of the day and that’ll do it
Bridgewater is sacked. Broncos use their final time out.
59 seconds to go
Bridgewater hits Fant for a TD … it’s 34-24 and with 1:12 to go the Broncos will try recover the onside kick
Jacobs gets into the end zone. 31-10 Raiders.
7 seconds to go in the 3rd.
Fans heading to the exits.
Broncos are out of challenges after losing their 2nd challenge (both in the 3rd quarter) ... and now only have one timeout left
From bad to worse:
Bridgewater scrambles --> fumbles --> Raiders take over on the 42
Javonte Williams with the hurdle and a 30-yard run!
Puts Denver in the red zone and could be the jolt the offense needs to get something going - and they NEED something because down 24 - 7, you need a TD here
The Raiders last two drives combined:
2 minutes, 24 seconds
Tim Patrick is also an under appreciated safety as well, apparently.
With a minute to go in the half, it takes the Raiders just 30 seconds to go 82 yards and score a TD ... They take a 17 - 7 lead 😬
Smart play by Javonte Williams to stay inbounds and force the Raiders to use a timeout ...
Raiders get the ball with 1:08 to go in the half ...
