Joe Flacco says Broncos ‘keep grinding’ despite slow start
“There’s no feeling sorry for yourself in the NFL,” Flacco said Sunday. “We’re all a bunch of grown men and [have a] bunch of people looking up to us . . . and in order to be a good role model and a good teammate and a good football player, you have to hold your head up high and have a lot of confidence and go out there and practice hard and keep grinding. That’s what I’m going to do and that’s what I expect everybody else to do.”
The Broncos have only combined to score 30 points as a team in their first two games of the season. Furthermore, their 30 points so far are the fifth-least amount of points scored in the NFL.
Last week, Denver seemed to be on track to win their first game under Vic Fangio after Flacco delivered a clutch touchdown to Emmanuel Sanders. Then, he proceeded to convert a two-point conversion to Sanders to give the Broncos a 14-13 lead with 31 seconds remaining.
Unfortunately, the Chicago Bears offense was able to get into field-goal range following two questionable plays on the final drive. Unlike Cody Parkey, Eddy Pineiro was able to make a 53-yard field goal to put a dagger in the Broncos heart.
The Broncos will attempt to perform better on offense against a much-improved defense in the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.
