On Thursday night, the Broncos were unable to defeat a Cleveland Browns team that was missing Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt and Baker Mayfield.
Following the loss, Bridgewater spoke to the media about the Broncos’ recent slump. He believes the responsibility falls on the offense to come out hot and set the tone for each game.
“We’ve got to start better,” Bridgewater said, via the Broncos’ official site. “We’ve got to stay on the field and do a better job of staying on the field. We just can’t wait until the second half. We’ve got to come out playing fast and make our opponents feel us. You watch us today, it’s the same story it’s been some of the past couple weeks. We’ve just got to get a lot of things fixed.”
Bridgewater struggled in the first half, completing 7-for-10 for 58 yards and an interception. In the second half, however, he had 129 passing yards and two touchdown passes.
Despite losing their past four games, the Broncos aren’t ready to make a change at quarterback. Fangio confirmed that Bridgewater will remain the team’s starter during his postgame press conference.
“I thought he played good, especially there in the second half,” Fangio said. “I don’t think Teddy’s injuries, from my vantage point, affected him that much. I thought he was courageous, and he’s our quarterback.”
Perhaps the return of second-year wideout Jerry Jeudy will give the offense a much-needed boost moving forward.
The Broncos will be back in action on Oct. 31 against the Washington Football Team. We’ll find out then if they can snap their four-game losing streak.Internet Explorer Channel Network
