WEEK 1 - GREEN BAY PACKERS @ DENVER BRONCOS After coming off of a rough season, the restructured Denver Broncos came out to the field against the Green Bay Packers for week 1. With a newly rebuilt offensive line, Broncos fans were very hopeful at the opening kick off, but their tune quickly changed. After starting their first drive with a 3 and out, the Broncos defense managed to hold the Packers offense and forced them to punt. Alexander Broussard took the field again hoping to make the most out of this drive. On his first pass of the drive, he makes a bad read and throws the ball straight to Arsenio Hobbs for an interception, giving Green Bay great field position ending with a pass from a scrambling Alveron Mason to Andrew Foreman, turning a near sack into a touchdown. After a disappointing first two drives, the Broncos offensive unit took the field, again hoping to make up for their mistakes. Things seemed to finally be looking up on this drive, with the Broncos converting a crucial 3rd down. Facing 2nd & 17, Broussard completes a beauty to Aspha Tarpley, who runs down the field, leaving the defenders in the dust. Seemed Tarpley was free and clear to the end zone, all he had to do was beat the safety. In a shocking move, Tarpley laterals the ball behind him, right into the hands of the Packers defense. After the game, Tarpley could not be reached for comment. Seemed after this, Denver's momentum had hit rock bottom on both offense and defense. Green Bay's running game seemed unstoppable, particularly with Mitchell Moss who averaged 7 yards a carry. Seems Green Bay has nothing to worry about after parting ways with Eddie Lacy. Things only looked down from here for the Broncos, with Green Bay putting up another score on the ground on a surprise QB draw. Things got worse after that with Broussard throwing another two interceptions. Perhaps Alex Jackson was getting to his head, as he had 4 sacks on the day. At the start of the 2nd half, the Broncos were looking up at the scoreboard for a 21-0 blowout. As a last ditch effort, Derek Carr was put into the game. However, throwing 6/8 with no score on the board was not enough. The Packers took this one home 31-0.
