At Wembley Stadium in London, the broncos vs jaguars, Denver Broncos defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 21-17 on Sunday morning.
The Broncos appeared to have arrived as usual before the beginning of this game, as seen by their performance, which was rife with penalties, offensive gaffes, and expensive errors. The team’s first victory in more than a month came as a result of what seemed like the franchise quarterback and head coach for the first time this season getting on the same page for a while.
Who had the most success and failure for Denver in Week 8? Let’s start now.
The rookie out of UCLA has proven why the coaching staff was so keen on him this spring, and GM George Paton has once again found himself a steal of a third-round choice. Dulcich had three catches for 78 yards on the Broncos’ second-half scoring drive, which covered 98 yards. He also just avoided falling into the end zone.
This young player is likely to excel in this league.
Sutton failed to put out enough effort to block in the run game, had just one catch for 13 yards, and made a costly error late in the fourth quarter that may have stopped the game-winning drive. He would be the first to confess that this isn’t the Sutton the fans have grown to know.
The great wide receiver has now had three straight mediocre weeks, so he has to pick things up quickly. The bye week should give Setton a chance to regroup.
Williams hasn’t received much attention this season, largely because he excels in his job. In contrast, Trevor Lawrence’s interception with only two minutes remaining with the game’s outcome on the line was the game-winning play delivered by the Broncos’ prized free-agent acquisition in London.
Williams also made a number of other excellent passes.
Given that Meinerz has established himself as the Broncos’ finest offensive tackle, it is fair to argue that the Wisconsin-Whitewater graduate fell short of expectations. He seemed a little disoriented out there and was in charge of two sacks.
To be fair to Meinerz, the Broncos’ whole offensive line didn’t look well as a collective, but as the group’s supposed leader, he needs to set the bar high.
The $245 million guy made several excellent plays that helped the Broncos get their first victory in five weeks, even though it wasn’t flawless, especially early. Wilson’s finest drive as a Bronco was 98 yards, and late in the game, he completed an amazing long ball toss to KJ Hamler to set up the game-winning score.
Prior to the bye, this was a decent game and a step in the right direction, but we can still hope and expect more from Wilson.For the rookie special-teamer, it was a difficult game. The amount of punts Washington fielded within the 10-yard line was excessive, and when he attempted to make a play, he was unable to generate anything.
