Jerry Jeudy catches for career-high 154 yards in Broncos’ win over Chargers


In his final game before a contract season, Jerry Jeudy made a statement: He’s ready to be the consistent, big-play wideout that Denver desperately needs.

The Broncos’ third-year receiver set a career-high with 154 yards on five catches, including two that went for over 50 yards, in the Broncos’ 31-28 win over the Chargers at Empower Field.

“It’s been really cool to see him step into that (big-play role lately),” safety Justin Simmons said. “Jerry’s just showing everyone what we already knew.”

Sunday’s performance at Empower Field again cemented as Jeudy as the No. 1 receiver in Russell Wilson’s offense with KJ Hamler hurt and Courtland Sutton’s production waning in the second half of the season. And it earned Jeudy a game ball, too.
