The Denver Broncos trail the Pittsburgh Steelers 10-9 going into the half. We take a look at the key moments from the first half.
The final game of Divisional Weekend has headed into the half. The Broncos currently trail by a score of 10-9. While the Broncos have looked solid, there have been some moments where they have looked a bit off.
Let us take a look at some of the key moments from the first half of this divisional round showdown.
Brandon McManus gets Broncos out to early lead
The Denver Broncos were able to get some solid field possession from punt returns by Omar Bolden and a bad punt by Pittsburgh. However, the two punts only resulted in two field goals.
The Broncos need to do a better job at taking advantage of field possession. The score could easily have been 14-10 Broncos. But give credit to McManus for doing his job.
Let us just hope that drives end with more touchdowns than anything else.
Broncos not tackling on defense
The Broncos on defense has not done too bad. However, the missed tackles and leaving wide open players has not settled well.
There have been so many missed tackles that should have been wrapped up and leaving the receivers wide open. It is quite difficult to watch this happen.
If the Broncos are going to have any chance of keeping up and having the chance to win this game, the defense needs to bring the heat and no more playing soft.
Dropped Passes Are Killing The Broncos
One of the biggest things that the team need to fix is the dropped passes. They have had so many plays that could have been big plays end because the player could not hold on to the football.
Manning is putting the ball in the right place. The cement block hands need to stop. If they can do that, the Broncos can start making plays.
It has been a tough going so far, but there is still hope. The Broncos get the ball to start the second half. Let’s Go Broncos!
