The Broncos won the statistical battle and lost the scoring war, out gaining the Jaguars 385 yards to 247. There was plenty of blame to spread around. Special Teams gave up a 49 yard punt return that lead to the winning TD. At the end of the first half, the offense had a first and goal at the 6 and had to settle for a field goal. And a bad exchange from Plummer to Griffin cost the Broncos a chance to kick a winning Field Goal at the end of the game.
Not a good week for the MasterMind. Portis had a bad day for the Redskins with only 69 yards on 20 carries with 2 fumbles. But with 280 prior touches without a fumble, yesterday was an aberration. I think that with Portis in the backfield, the Broncos can get more than a Field Goal and a fumble out of the final drives of the 1st and 2nd halves.
