Broncos Offensive Drives Analysis - 1st half

 

I had/have a lot of thoughts about the game.  One thing that amazed me was how few points we ended up with.  I decided to break down each drive.  Bear with me if you care to (not sure how this will paste).

Run 3, Pass 4.  All went well - running and passing - expect for the penalty and just as bad was the sack.  This sack I recall was on Daniels...just as bad as the holding penalty.  Knocked us out of FG range. BTW, great pooch kick by Britton here.  Tebow sighting, not sure about the purpose tho.

DRIVE TOTALS: DEN 0, JAC 0, 12 plays, 68 yards, 8:28 elapsed

6 run 6 pass.  8:28 drive went for naught.  Horrible fumble.   Running plays DID NOT work here ironically besides the one Buck fumbled.  Tebow 2nd appearance...some reason. Did not affect drive.

 

1st and 10 at DEN 27

K.Orton pass incomplete short middle to K.Moreno.

DRIVE TOTALS: DEN 0, JAC 0, 3 plays, -6 yards, 0:34 elapsed

3 Pass 0 Run.  Nothing happened except a sack on 3rd down.  Seems when they pin their ears back, the defense can get to Orton (esp if he hangs on to it a bit long).

M.Prater extra point is GOOD, Center-L.Paxton, Holder-B.Colquitt.

M.Prater kicks 60 yards from DEN 30 to JAX 10. M.Owens to JAX 32 for 22 yards (C.Vaughn).

4 Pass 0 Run. Great play by Lloyd and Orton. Set up TD.  Not sure why we don't go more no-huddle offense since Orton has such a strong handle on the offense.  Thats not meant to say we should play hurry up.

 

 

FIRST HALF - 3 good drives should have yielded points.  One did.  Minimum 13 points should have been score at the half.
