Broncos Lose 23-7 To Ravens In First Loss Of 2021, Watch Teddy Bridgewater Exit With Conceived

The Broncos failed their first litmus test of 2021, and saw quarterback Teddy Bridgewater walk out with a jolt in the process.

As Baltimore beat the Broncos 23-7 at Empower Field on Sunday, neither Bridgewater nor backup Drew Locke was able to get the offense into gear. Denver punts 10 times to drop 3-1 along the way.

Led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, the Ravens had all the momentum after Denver took a 7-0 lead.

The Broncos had promise in their early possession, but tight end Albert Okuegbunam dropped a long pass that would have set Denver close to the goal line. The next play was then dismissed, forcing Bridgewater to a punt.

Five more punts followed in total before Javonte Williams eventually handed the Broncos offense and 74,132 at Empower Field. The rookie rumbled for a 31-yard run, during which he missed four potential tacklers and put the crowd on their feet. Baltimore needed a gang of guards to bring him down.

Williams’ big run set up Bridgewater’s 3-yard touchdown pass to Tim Patrick after a few plays and gave Denver a 7-0 lead in the second quarter. The feeling of 4-0 was in the stadium.

But Baltimore found a rhythm on their opening drive of the second quarter, and Latvius Murray’s 11-yard touchdown running at the 10:21 mark drew 7-7. The score was set up by several fine catches by tight end Mark Andrews, who presented a mismatch problem for the Broncos’ defense.
