Denver still struggling in the red zone
By Bill Williamson
DENVER -- The Broncos’ red zone woes are continuing in the first half Thursday night against the Giants. In the first quarter, Denver had a first down at New York’s 7-yard line, but it had to settle for a short Matt Prater field goal.
In the second quarter, Denver had a first down at the 7 as well. Three penalties later and the Broncos had to settle for another short Prater field goal to take a 6-0 lead.
Since the Washington game Nov. 15, Denver has been in the red zone seven times and it has had to settle for four field goals. Denver turned the ball over twice and lost the ball on downs the other trips to the red zone.
