DENVER – In the first three games of the season, Denver has trailed for a total of four-plus minutes.

Early in the second quarter, they are down 10-0 to visiting Dallas.

It’s time to see what the Broncos, 3-0 are made of. Today starts a critical stretch for Denver and this is some early adversity.

So far, Denver quarterback Kyle Orton has not looked sharp. He is holding the ball longer than he had in the first three games. He has not been accurate. Orton has to get going for Denver to be able to catch up.

Dallas is challenging Denver’s defense and excelling in the short passing game. They are having success in the screen game.
