Overall: B

The Broncos offensive line was up and down. Their first unit, Clady-Franklin-Ramirez-Vasquez-Clark, was extremely strong. They gave the QB plenty of time to throw and open holes in the running game. The second unit, Cornick-Garland-Montgomery-Painter-Schofield struggled. The struggle came from Montgomery and Schofield. The rookie Schofield saw his first action, so some struggle is expected. Montgomery played horribly. Consistently beaten. Cornick played awesome. One play he won his battle using one arm only. When Justice came in for Cornick, the left tackle play dropped, which is probably why Cornick is sitting with the second unit and not Justice. Paradis and Miller played a lot better than the players they were stepping in for, Montgomery and Painter. Both were rarely beaten and a strong point in both pass protection and run blocking.
