Denver Broncos Week 13 Rookie Report

The Broncos have won seven in a row and Andrew Luck had an amazing comeback in week 13.

Garrett Ellwood

RONNIE HILLMAN had 9 snaps in the Broncos victory on offense. He had 5 carries for 29 yards with a long run of 9 yards.

MALIK JACKSON played 26 snaps vs the Bucs. He got decent playing time in the game getting 20 snaps on defense and 6 on special teams. The increase was probably due to Ayers being out and his 20 snaps accounted for 30% of the plays. He had no tackles.

The rookie linebackers got some work as well. DANNY TREVATHAN had 21 defensive snaps and 19 snaps on special teams. He had three tackles and one pass deflection. STEVEN JOHNSON had one tackle. He played 20 snaps on special teams.

OMAR BOLDEN had 8 defensive snaps and 16 special teams plays. He had no tackles and no kick returns. Bolden continues to make some plays on special teams and had has forced the opposition deep in their end on punts a few times now.

DEREK WOLFE had 65 snaps on defense leading the entire defensive line in playing time. He had 2 tackles and one assisted tackle.


ROBERT GRIFFIN III helped bring the 'Skins within one game of the division lead. RG3 went 13 of 21 for 163 yards and one touchdown. He also had 5 carries for 72 yards.

ANDREW LUCK went 24 of 54, 391 yards, 4 TDs, 3 INTs. When it looked like the Colts were finished, Luck carried them to another amazing comeback over the Lions. Luck has been an incredible quarterback for a rookie and has tied Sam Bradfords rookie record for wins with 8. The Colts look like a shoe-in to make the playoffs which is incredible after being the NFLs worst team in 2011.

RUSSELL WILSON had another shockingly good performance. He lead the Seahawks on a game winning drive but then Chicago somehow tied the game in the dying seconds, which forced Wilson to lead ANOTHER game winning drive. He was 23 of 37 for 293, two touchdowns and 73 rushing yards.

BRANDON WEEDEN got the Browns a victory against the lowly Oakland raiders. Might not sound like much, but to travel the distance they did and put up the numbers he did was impressive. He threw 25 of 36 passes for a career high 364 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

WHITNEY MERCILUS had a pair of sacks and has three in his last 2 games. He also recovered a fumble. He has 5 sacks on the year now and 19 tackles.

HARRISON SMITH has been a fantastic rookie safety for the Vikings. He intercepted Aaron Rodgers on Sunday and had 11 tackles. He has 47 tackles and 2 interceptions.

BRYCE BROWN continued to be a hot hand in Philadelphia. He had 169 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns however he did lose one fumble. Could be a great fantasy pickup if for some reason no one has grabbed him yet.

ALFRED MORRIS had 124 yards to pass the 1000 mark on the season. However he also lost his third fumble of the year. Still have to be impressed with the rookie.

DOUG MARTIN was held to under 100 total yards against the Broncos. He made some big plays early but the Broncos were able to pull away forcing the Bucs to throw the ball.

JANORIS JENKINS returned a fumble for a touchdown against the 49s. This is his third touchdown in 2 weeks.
