December 11, 2016 Denver Broncos at Tennessee Titans
The humbled Broncos don’t waste any time in Tennessee. The defense comes out firing on all cylinders, proving why they won the Super Bowl just a year ago, and punishes Marcus Mariota all day long, until Mariota finally has to leave the game in the 3rd quarter with a concussion. The same plays true with Mettenberger, as he is tossed to the ground six times in a quarter and a half, and Mark Sanchez, who is feeling the pressure of a rookie first round pick sitting behind him, finally delivers a performance worthy of a starting quarterback. Sanchez throws for 3 TD’s and no INT’s and the Broncos roll 35-6 and secure themselves a 6th straight season at .500 or better.
