Denver Broncos' Special Teams Has Seen Better Days

The Denver Broncos’ special teams unit was anything but special with one exception.

Trindon Holliday once again swooned Broncos Country with his speed and quickness in the Broncos’ 17-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

On his first opportunity for a kickoff return, Holliday ran it back 50 yards to put the team on their own 47-yard line. In the end, the run helped the Broncos get to within field goal range, but Matt Prater missed on a 47-yard attempt.

Similarly, to open the second half, Holliday ran the kickoff back 41 yards to give the Broncos great field position. Again, Prater missed on a 33-yard field goal attempt.

Prater wasn’t the only one to have trouble on special teams. Punter Britton Colquitt averaged 42.3 yards per punt, including a 39-yard punt.

If the Broncos’ offense and run defense was having a rough day, it was only fitting that special teams would too.
