Broncos beat a flying home Panthers on the back of Ezekiel Elliott. After an interception on the opening play for the Broncos the 1.1 Draft pick Ezekiel Elliott took his first touch for an 88 yd TD to stun Panthers crowd with an early 7-0 lead.
Broncos running game was on point with Zeke rushing for 180 yds of 22 attempts for 3 TDs at 8.18 ypc and Riggs adding 47 yds at 4.27 ypc. The only blemish being the 2 fumbles Elliot allowed that where regained.
Panthers played a great passing game with Broncos not being able to stop the passing plays with great success and will result in a rethink on the defensive side of the ball.
Passing is another area of concern for the Broncos with David Johnson having a poor day at the office throwing 3 INTs and a rating of 53.7.
Thanks Mike and Panthers for a tough entertaining game which the Broncos GM was surprised that we had won. Starting 1-0 is a plus on a tough early schedule.. onto Omari's Dolphins in a hope we can get lucky again
