The Denver Broncos are heading on the road to Jacksonville on Sunday to take on the Jaguars. The Broncos are coming off an impressive Week 1 road win over the New York Giants and looking to make it back-to-back victories. For Jacksonville, the start of the Urban Meyer regime did not go as planned, losing at Houston 37-21 in Week 1. When you go to your online NFL betting site, you will find the Denver Broncos are -6 and the over/under is 44 for Week 2.
The Broncos got a solid game from their quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. The former Louisville signal-caller tossed two touchdown passes and threw for 264 yards. His top target was tight end Noah Fant, who caught six passes for 62 yards but did not score a touchdown. The Broncos saw Albert Okwuegbunam and Tim Patrick catch the two touchdown passes.
On the ground, Denver is anchored by Melvin Gordon. The running back finished with over 100 yards and a touchdown while Javonte Williams also got 14 carries as well. The Broncos’ defense is known as one of the best in the league and they held New York to just 13 points.
For the Jaguars, the first game for Meyer and rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence will be one to forget. The Jaguars trailed 27-7 at halftime and the second half did not get much better. The Jaguars saw Lawrence throw three interceptions in the game and he ended up attempting 51 passes.
D.J. Chark, Marvin Jones and Chris Manhertz all caught touchdown passes, but the question mark on the offensive side was the running game. Carlos Hyde got the bulk of the work early and James Robinson ended with just five carries and 25 yards. Jacksonville will obviously need more from the ground game on Sunday.
