No. 8- Andy Janovich’s First NFL Touchdown
Gary Kubiak was huge on returning the full back position to the Broncos.
The team went out and used their sixth round draft pick to select Andy Janovich from Nebraska.
I honestly would give him the Denver Broncos rookie of the year honors, but not by much. Justin Simmons would have breathed down his neck.
In the first game of the season against the Carolina Panthers, Janovich was supposed to take a 3rd and 1 full back run to get the first down.
However, he found a hole in the offensive line and burst right through it. He would score his first career touchdown on his very first NFL carry.
Andy Janovich made the running game look really good. Until he was placed on IR with an injury. His disappearance was noted as the running game just looked very bad after that.
No. 7- Broncos Opening Drive Touchdown vs. Saints
The Denver Broncos struggled to get opening drive touchdowns during the 2016 season. However, it seems as if they were determined to get off to a strong start against the Saints.
The drive itself was awesome to watch. Seeing Trevor Siemian move the ball down the field with such grace.
Starting the drive from their own 15 yard line, the offense used a balance of run and pass that ended with a touchdown that was ruled incomplete at first, but was reversed due to a coach’s challenge.
Trevor Siemian found Jordan “Sunshine” Taylor twice during that drive. Both on big time passes.
The final pass of the drive between the two resulted in the first opening drive touchdown for the Broncos this season. It would mark Jordan Taylor’s first touchdown of his career.
