Denver Broncos vs. Arizona Cardinals First Half Reactions
The Denver Broncos lead the Arizona Cardinals 20-2 at the half. I react to some of the plays from the first half of the final preseason game of 2017.
It was quite the slow start from the game between the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals. But did things light up in the last five minutes of the second quarter.
The Denver Broncos were only leading by a baseball score of 3-2 when they took over at their own two yard line. From that point on, the game began to open up a little bit. We saw Kyle Sloter embrace his inner John Elway from “The Drive” and drove the Broncos down 98 yards for a touchdown.
That drive ended on two Stevan Ridley runs. But it all started with two big time passes by Kyle Sloter. After a sluggish start to the game, it appears as if on that play, Sloter started to pick things up.
This after a sluggish start that saw Kyle Sloter get sacked in the end zone for a safety. He would almost suffer another safety sack later on in the game.
The game started to really open up when a pass from Arizona Cardinals quarterback Trevor Knight ended up in the hands of Dymonte Thomas. He would take the interception 58 yards for a pick six. That would give the Denver Broncos a 17-2 lead. Brandon McManus would add another FG to make it 20-2.

There are quite a few Broncos that are making their cases known to get a spot on the final 53. One name that has really stuck out to me is Brendan Langley. The third round draft pick in this year’s draft has looked really good. He has made some solid plays that have helped out the Denver Broncos defense.
The players only have 30 more minutes to make a case for themselves. The Broncos will start the second half with the football. Go Broncos!
