Titans Third Drive cont.... --

--2nd and 8 from the Broncos 37 starts the 2nd quarter, and we can add a holding penalty to it.
--Hamza can lay the wood, no doubt about it. Solid gain by the Titans on 2nd and long.
--Paymah gives up way too much space and the Titans are nearing the Red Zone.
--And they bust right through it, with Young throwing the 20 yard TD pass, Dre Bly getting beat....BRONCOS 14 - Titans 7

Broncos Third Drive --

--Imperative for the Broncos to answer, even if it is 3...
--What a catch by Stokley, who is proving to me more and more that the Broncos need to bring him back next season..
--Daniel Graham gets in on the action, and the Broncos offense is rolling right now...
--Stokely again, and this time the Titans find a way to stop him. Too bad it is illegal. First and goal for the Broncos!
--Solid job by Young turning nothing into something...
--The Broncos can actually pick up a first down at the one, and Scheffler has the Broncos close, a 3rd and one coming up...
--Gotta go for the field goal and get points.
--Easy decision, to keep it at 2 possessions. BRONCOS 17 - Titans 7

Titans Fourth Drive --

--The Titans are backed up deep, a perfect opportunity for the defense to make the play....
--Broncos once again getting burned by the Tight End. Defense needs to find a way to stop TE's, especially with Antonio Gates down the road...
--Nearly a fumble, but just another first down for the Titans offense.
--Nice tackle by Bly will bring up another 3rd down.
--Another 3rd down conversion for the Titans, and it has been through the air, against Bailey and Bly
--There's the play we needed from the defense!!! Fumble by White give the Broncos offense back the ball and more importantly keeps the Titans off the scoreboard..

Broncos Fourth Drive --

--Is it me, or does Cutler seem to struggle after the scripted plays are run??
--Doesn't matter, when Selvin Young can pick up the first down on the ground...
--Another great throw and catch, Cutler to Scheffler, and another Broncos first down...
--A love the fake pass, then the hurdle by Marshall...Even more impressive was the block by Marshall the play before...
--Offense bogging down at the 20, once again..
--TWO MINUTE WARNING -- BRONCOS 17 - TITANS 7
--Big drop by Martinez, but 3 is better than nothing after the turnover...
--Elam out to attempt the field goal and he nails it...BRONCOS 20 - Titans 7

Titans Fifth Drive --

--Better coverage for the Broncos that time...Let's see Vince run the two-minute drill...
--Broncos stripping the ball again, but the Titans are able to recover...
--Two plays and the Titans are close to mid-field. Not a solid half for the defense...
--Gage again, and the Titans are moving....again
--That's a catch...Sorry Broncos fans...
--The Titans seemed to rush it, not allowing the refs to stop the play...
--Another drop by a Titans receiver and the Broncos dodge another bullet...
--Well in Bironas' range, and Shanny gets burned here, calling the timeout on a field goal miss.
--Will it burn the Broncos? It will. The second chance is good...BRONCOS 20 - Titans 10

Broncos Fifth Drive --

--A Selvin Young run ends a nice half for the Broncos.

HALFTIME - BRONCOS 20 - TITANS 10
