Broncos self destruct again in a 32-3 route, which takes them out of the lead in the AFC west.
The turning point in this game was the fumble by Moreno at the end of the first half, which cost the Broncos a touchdown and a chance to win the game. It looked like Moreno was down on the replay, but Moreno just made another costly rookie fumble.
Chris Simms did not play that well, and his fumble on the opening drive also cost the Broncos another score.
Orton played fairly well given his injury, and he did spark the offense.
The Broncos defense has allowed way too much rushing yardage in the last four losses in a row. LT had 73 yards, Tolbert 58, and Hester 46. If you total the rushing yardage by San Diego it adds up to 203 yards.
Moreno put up 80 yards, and on several plays he looked like Clinton Portis used to. Another problem on defense was the lack of sacks--Rivers was able to sit back in the pocket all day.
McDaniels really needs to get this team going against the Giants. The ironic thing about this Broncos meltdown, is that last years team did almost exactly the same thing, in terms of the fast start, and then losing division games.
The Broncos really need a serious gut check at this point, because the may get eliminated from Wild Card contention if they continue this downward spiral.
