Broncos Pre-Season Week 2 Takeaways

On Saturday, the Denver Broncos took on the Chicago Bears, collapsing in the fourth quarter before losing 24-23. Even though the team lost, there were many bright spots in the game, particularly with the rookies.

Welcome to the NFL, Mr. Chubb

Let’s start with the fifth overall pick this year and first score of the game. Bradley Chubb managed to sack Mitchell Trubisky for a safety. Linebackers Brandon Marshall and Todd Davis created the play by getting multiple stops on running back Jordan Howard. The first stop was a four yard loss, with Marshall making the tackle. The second came when Davis froze Howard at the three yard line the following attempt.

Credit must be given to Denver’s special teams, specifically punter Marquette King. He placed a beauty that traveled 49 yards forcing returner Cre’Von LeBlanc to field it at the 5-yard line.

Offense Gets Into A Rhythm

The offense was off to a scorching hot start in the first half. Case Keenum was able to get comfortable with the offense and get himself into a groove. Keenum was able to complete four straight passes, moving to the Chicago eight yard line. Unfortunately, Denver had to settle for a field goal from Brandon McManus after a slew of incomplete passes.

“I feel like we started way faster this week,” nose tackle Domata Peko Sr. said. “We got in there really quick and got after them.”

Broncos converted 4-6 on third down during the first half, including 3-4 when having third down and eight yards or fewer. The first drive of the game that was seen for a touchdown occurred in the second quarter. A nine play, 82 yard stampede ended in a rushing TD from Royce Freeman, who powered into the end zone.

Chad Kelly Takes Advantage

Newly positioned QB2 Chad Kelly put up a phenomenal performance for the second straight game. Kelly was able to connect with rookie Courtland Sutton for a 16 yard touchdown on his first drive. Sutton scored his third touchdown of the pre-season ranking him first among scored TD’s on the team. Kelly was able to polish off his game going 7/9 for 90 yards with a passer rating of 145.4.
