Broncos Country, let’s kick! A win’s a win, but Russell Wilson-Nathaniel Hackett offense looks kinda offensive.



Initial thoughts from Broncos’ 11-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3 at Empower Field:

1.Broncos offense isn’t a work in progress. It’s not working. Broncos Country, let’s punt! As satisfying as Sunday night’s win felt, the fact remains: This offense still has some work to do. Like, a lot of work. The Broncos moved to 2-1 with just 11 points, 14 first downs and 261 total yards. Fun fact: The 11 points were the first by the Broncos in a win in franchise history. Denver scored 11 in two losses, one at Washington (27-11) in 2017, and one at Seattle (13-11) in 1983.

2. Only the Broncos could have something awesome happen  … and get points taken OFF the board. Jimmy Garoppolo dropped back on a second-and-10 at his 2 … and kept dropping back and dropping back. He threw the ball away and right into the arms of Bradley Chubb, who figured he’d notched a game-changing pick-6. One problem: Jimmy G had stepped on the back line of the end zone with his heel when he released the ball, wiping the TD off the board and rewarding the Broncos a safety and a 7-5 deficit.
