The game is over and the Denver Broncos lost. It was their worst showing of the preseason, but just how did the players and positions grade out? Well after spending a lot of time watching the game, here is my take. Starting with the offensive side of the ball at the quarterback position. Just like before, C is the starting point.

The Quarterback play from the Broncos was the worst so far this preseason. Each quarterback threw a pick. Manning was trying to force the ball to Emmanuel Sanders and just got picked off, but Manning was able to bounce back. After the pick, Manning tossed two beautifully placed balls to Emmanuel Sanders for a long touchdown. Brock had a rough night and there are very few positives to take away from his game. He completed only four passes, but a few of his incompletes were well placed balls only to be dropped by the receivers. His best play came on a read option where Brock kept the ball and took off for a nice run.
