Jeff Heuerman joined Benjamin Allbright, Ryan Edwards and special guest Andrew Mason on Broncos Country tonight on KOA Radio.

The Broncos tight end talked about the next step for Denver to build upon their first win of the season is to carry their first half momentum into the second half and put teams away.

The last two weeks, Denver’s offense has come out of the gate hot, but cooled as the game went on. Against Jacksonville, Denver was up 17 - 6 at halftime and last week went into the half up 17 - 0.

In the last three weeks combined, the Broncos offense has only scored 16 total second half points, compared to 44 points scored in the first half. Denver has been outscored in the second half over that same time span 43 - 16.

I would say Heuerman is on to something. The Broncos have seemed to come out flat in the second half, especially the first few drives of the second half.

In order to build off the momentum they started last week with a win, Denver is going to have to sustain the momentum for the whole game, not just the first half.
