The Broncos come home next week to face the Jets.
Jake Brendel entered the game for Pouncey, and the offensive line didn't seem to miss a beat.
Sunday was a miserable game for the Broncos in nearly every single facet, including starting quarterback, Trevor Siemian, who-by nearly every measure-had his worst game of the season.
"We're on our fourth quarterback (start) of the year", Joseph said. The Broncos' defense forced a three-and-out, but rookie Isaiah McKenzie fumbled a punt and the ball went through the Broncos' endzone for a safety. They safeties on defense and special teams, threw for a touchdown, ran for a touchdown, got a pick-six and tacked on a 37-yard field goal by Pro Bowl candidate Cody Parkey to round it out at a season-high 35 points.
Then it brings us a full 360 degrees, in a vicious circle, back to the inevitable conclusion that this mess must be the result of lousy coaching by Joseph. With a 33-9 lead, Miami coach Adam Gase called for an onside kick. "That just says a lot about him as a player and what he's able to do in there, the disruption he creates, the attention he demands, it's so impressive". The 12th-year pro was ruled of Denver's game against the Miami Dolphins because of a sprained MCL in his left knee.
Denver Broncos John Elway, executive vice president of football operations and general manager, stands int eh bench area before their game against the Arizona Cardinals September 1, 2016 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. Now, these are not propitious circumstances by any stretch of the imagination. The crowd thinned even more when Xavien Howard picked off an off target Siemian throw to the sideline and ran it back 30 yards for a touchdown.
Joe Ellis, the franchise's chief executive officer, leaned against a counter in the visiting locker room for several long minutes after the putrid loss to Miami, absorbing the vibe of a team that has lost its mojo. CB Aqib Talib missed the game due to his suspension for an altercation with Oakland WR Michael Crabtree last Sunday.
Howard intercepted Siemian again in the fourth quarter to set up Miami's final touchdown. Blocked punt. Delay-of-game penalty on the Broncos - on a kickoff.
"In his seven drafts, Elway's 54 picks entering play Sunday have combined to average 32.2 games played, which ranks No. 4 in the NFL", Klis writes.
It's not a ridiculous question anymore: Are the Broncos, at 3-9, the worst team in the NFL?
Cutler completed 18-of-31 attempts for 235 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in his return from a concussion. The Broncos don't have one. What will the Broncos need to do to snatch up a win?
"Everything is tough right now". On the offense's only scoring drive of the game they went 67 yards with at least two backs or two tight ends in the formation on each play of the drive before Demaryius Thomas dropped a Siemian pass - out of three-wide - on third down that could have been thrown better.
And, I know what you're muttering under your breath.
