Denver Broncos: 5 takeaways from Week 2 win over Jaguars
The Denver Broncos have taken advantage of the schedule that has been put in front of them in 2021 and they are out to a 2-0 start following a 10-point win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
What can we take away from this victory as it relates to the Broncos and the remainder of this season? Well, there is plenty.
The Broncos played good on both sides of the ball in this one and aside from giving up an opening-drive touchdown to Trevor Lawrence and Jacksonville and a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, they were never really in danger of losing this game.
Courtland Sutton is back
With Jerry Jeudy sidelined with a high ankle sprain, the Broncos needed their wide receivers to step up.
Tim Patrick found the end zone for the second week in a row but it was Courtland Sutton who had the biggest day. Sutton caught nine passes for 159 yards and was the top target for Teddy Bridgewater all day.
Bridgewater looked for Sutton on several deep routes and hit him for several big gains on the day. Sutton seemed to catch almost everything thrown his way and and kept the chains moving every time the Broncos needed a play.
Sutton was fairly quiet in Week 1 against the New York Giants, catching just one pass for 14 yards in the game. After the season-ending injury he suffered in Week 2 last year, it was crucial for him to have a performance like this and it was one of the biggest bright spots on the day.
