DENVER -- The Broncos used the Wildcat offense during their first series.
The team used a direct snap to running back Correll Buckhalter, who started the game ahead of rookie Knowshon Moreno. Denver used the Wildcat formation against New England earlier in the season.
The Broncos featured receiver Eddie Royal on their first drive, with the wide receiver catching three passes for 47 yards. That already makes it his second most productive game of the season. He entered the game with 158 yards receiving on 20 catches.
Denver took a 3-0 lead on a Matt Prater field goal on the first drive.
