Denver-Baltimore halftime notes
By Bill Williamson
Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson
If the Denver Broncos are going to remain unbeaten today in Baltimore, they must continue their fabulous second-half play.
Denver has outscored opponents 76-10 while compiling a 6-0 record. The Broncos trail Baltimore 6-0. Denver trailed in the last three games in the third quarter.
Denver is playing well defensively, but it is struggling offensively. Quarterback Kyle Orton has thrown for just 35 yards. So, it’s easy to figure where the Broncos need to focus their half-time adjustments.
Denver’s outstanding right tackle Ryan Harris is out with a toe injury. He has been replaced by Tyler Polumbus. There is no long-term prognosis on Harris’ injury.
New Denver punter Mitch Berger has punted five times. He hasn’t been overly impressive he took over for the struggling Brett Kern.
