Denver’s 20-13 win over the Dolphins on Sunday wasn’t pretty, but it was the type of gritty victory the reeling Broncos desperately needed following two decisive road losses.
Denver’s defensive front kept Miami rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa from getting comfortable, recording a season-high-tying six sacks before forcing his benching in the fourth quarter. The offense found just enough spark, especially in the second half as the run game came into shape for a season-high 189 yards. And the defense held with a last-minute stand as safety Justin Simmons intercepted a pass in the end zone thrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick to seal the game.
The Broncos were going for the clinching score with just over 5 minutes left when Melvin Gordon fumbled at the 1-yard line. Miami recovered and Fitzpatrick drove the Dolphins to the Broncos’ 15 before Simmons’ interception on a 3rd-and-8 throw.
The Broncos deferred to begin the game and then endured another ugly start despite forcing Miami to a three-and-out on the game’s opening possession. Carrying over the poor decision making he’s displayed since returning from a shoulder injury in Week 6, Drew Lock threw an interception on Denver’s third play from scrimmage.
