(Colo)-Broncs Fall To Dolphins 35-9 For 8th Straight Loss
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - The Denver Broncos lost their 8th in a row on Sunday, falling 35-9 at the Miami Dolphins in a dismal offensive and special teams showing. The win broke a 5-game losing streak for Miami and extended the 2nd-longest losing streak in Broncos' history.
Miami scored two safeties in a game for the first time in franchise history, one against the Denver offense and one on special teams, while holding the Broncos to1 for 13 on 3rd-down conversions and intercepting Trevor Siemian 3 times - returning one for a 30-yard touchdown.
The Dolphins took a 2-0 lead when Siemian knocked the ball out of the end zone after a shotgun snap sailed well over his head. The Broncos answered with a field goal for a 3-2 lead, but Miami scored back-to-back touchdowns 7-seconds apart...the second on an interception...and were never again threatened.
The Dolphins led at the half for just the 2nd time all season and after 3 quarters for the first time. They also got their second rushing touchdown of the season and pulled off a successful onside kick while up 33-9 in the 4th quarter.
Former Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler went 18 for 31 for 235 yards and 2 scores for Miami, but threw two interceptions...one returned 65-yards by Justin Simmons for Denver's lone touchdown.
In their 8 game losing streak, the Broncos have not led at all in the 2nd half. Denver returns home to try to stop their slide against the New York Jets, who beat Kansas City this week.
