Denver Broncos: 5 takeaways from ugly loss to Tom Brady’s Bucs
Denver Broncos: Top 5 takeaways from an ugly loss to Buccaneers.
The Denver Broncos dropped to 0-3 on the 2020 season, a truly atrocious and disappointing start to the year.
The Broncos’ 28-10 loss to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers looked way too easy for Tampa Bay, and ultimately leaves the Broncos with way more questions than answers heading into week four, a Thursday Night Football matchup against the hapless New York Jets.
The Jets have, unfortunately (for them), proven to be in even worse shape than the Broncos to this point, which is really astounding.
How are the Broncos going to bounce back from this?
Thankfully, while the Jets are an NFL defense, they will be somewhat of a respite for the Denver Broncos who have faced two of the best, fastest, and most physical defenses in the league in the last two weeks.
After losing Drew Lock and Courtland Sutton to injuries in week two, the Broncos were really just too battered and beaten up to compete with the Buccaneers.
How ugly was this game for the Broncos?
The starting quarterback for the game was Jeff Driskel, and he was replaced in the fourth quarter by Brett Rypien, who was just called up off the practice squad.
The Broncos finished the game with just 42 total rushing yards, six sacks allowed, and 10 more QB hits allowed.
