Broncos-Bengals one-liners

Said WR Brandon Stokely of his miraculous touchdown catch to give the Broncos a 12-7 victory, “When I scored I just remember, just quiet. The crowd was so quiet. That was a good feeling.”

The Broncos defense held the Bengals scoreless for more than 59 minutes in a performance that did a lot to erase memories of the way last season ended. 

All that good work was almost eliminated because of the 11-play, 91-yard drive that put the Broncos behind with 41 seconds to play.

Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno left the game with a lower leg injury after carrying the ball eight times for 19 yards.

Broncos TE Tony Scheffler had his first career interception on the failed Bengals hail mary that ended the game.

Bengals defensive backs Chris Crocker and Roy Williams helped spring Stokely when they both tackled Broncos WR Brandon Marshall after CB Leon Hall tipped the fateful pass.

On the play before Stokely’s touchdown, Bengals CB Jonathan Joseph came close to intercepting a pass but his foot landed out of bounds.

Bengals QB Carson Palmer called the offensive effort, 307 yards and one touchdown, “embarrassing.”

WR Chad Ochocinco had five catches for 89 yards, more than he had in any game last year, but he also picked up two penalties that crushed Bengals drives.

The Bengals had three sacks on what was a mostly successful day for their defense.

    That’s great. The Bengals were a sexy pick for a lot of analysts this season to make some noise and maybe make the playoffs. They can’t even beat the terrible Broncos!!!

    It’s only week 1, and the Bengals, Browns, and Texans are all who we thought they were.

    “Lower leg injury”? Does that mean “foot” or even perhaps “toe” in Belichickese?

    I think it’s funny how steeler fans insist on posting in bengal threads. Im gonna start an alge crumpler fan club, like the steelers fans did for benard pollard last year.

    To be fair to Chad and the two penalties, the holding penalty was actually by the TE Coats number 86. They called 85 by mistake. I kept replaying that looking for the holding before I realized based on where they marked off the penalty that the hold had to have been on the line, not downfield, and then saw the fairly obvious hold by Coats.

    Why not start a petition like the Pats fans did a couple of years ago? Yeah, that’s the ticket.
