Questionable call, turnovers plague Saints as they fall to the BroncosBy Kelly Sanders Nov 15, 2016
The Eagles' suffocating first half, led by an active front seven and big days from Malcolm Jenkins and Leodis McKelvin, among others, helped ground the risky Falcons.
Week 10 of the National Football League was a fork in the road moment for the Denver Broncos 2016 season.
A mighty river and a blocked extra-point conversion reversed direction and the outcome. Siemian was sacked six times and hit 11 times.
"Obviously, it's a tough loss. I didn't see anyuthing illegal". While QBs have done (and will do more) damage against a suspect New Orleans defense, Siemian's composure under fire warrants at least a pat on the back. I thought we were really fortunate to be in the game.
Another turning point. Stewart's third takeaway of the game gave Siemian's offense the ball at the New Orleans' 27.
Denver's defense, missing injured starters Aqib Talib and Derek Wolfe, forced four turnovers to support young quarterback Trevor Siemian's bid to beat Brees. ".It was nice today to kind of get our feet wet a little bit to get a game-changing play and help this team get a W".
However, video replay showed Taylor's knee came down in bounds before the foot touched on the white line. But the win itself was one about character, persistence and fight - a point Head Coach Gary Kubiak made Saturday night.
On paper, it's a match-up of strength vs. strength (Saints #1 passing offense against the Broncos #1 ranked pass defense), and weakness vs. weakness (the abysmal Saints defense against the struggling Broncos offense).
He indicated the key to the Saints' success against the Broncos offensive line was the ability to generate pressure with a four-man rush, and Jordan said that is a style of attack the Saints strive for every game. As linebacker Von Miller has said, "We look at it like if we score three on offense, then we need to hold them to less than that".
You don't get many, if any, miraculous moments in this sport.

While KC's offence gained only 256 yards and converted only two first downs, Carolina's didn't score a point over the final 31:51. Simmons' block was scooped up by Parks, who almost stepped out of bounds as he raced down the left sideline. That was enough evidence to overturn the call and give Denver an early lead in the Superdome. "(Parks') got white cleats, against the white sideline.
The Saints tried an onside kick, because even though the Broncos just retook the lead, it was still the Saints' touchdown. But he did throw two interceptions.
Jordan's overall play drew praise from his teammates.
"I'm still in disbelief", Brees said after the game.
Simmons and Parks' big play was a triumph of preparation and effort. He's hard on himself. "We just picked up on their tendencies throughout the week watching film and executed the play".
The Broncos improved to 7-3 with the win.
Carson Wentz threw for 231 yards and led the Eagles (5-4) to a comeback victory for the first time this season.
The Jaguars (2-7) lost their fourth straight and fell to 0-4 at home. Now the Broncos had scored 10 unanswered points for a 20-17 lead with 3:23 remaining.
Asked if Parks stepped out, Saints coach Sean Payton said he didn't get a great view of the play.
- With 303 yards, Brees is now eight yards short of breaking 3,000 yards on the year for his 14th career 3,000-yard season.
