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.
