The Jaguars must not have received the memo that they have no chance against the Broncos.
Late in the first half of a surprisingly competitive game, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw a pass over the middle that Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny leapt into the air and intercepted. Posluszny then raced 59 yards to the end zone for a touchdown that narrowed the score to 14-12. Jacksonville went for two in an attempt to tie the score before halftime, but the conversion attempt was no good.
The Broncos do look like the better team, and the Jaguars’ offense isn’t getting much of anything going. But this is a close, competitive game, despite the all-time record point spread of 28.
Denver fans booed the Broncos as they jogged into the locker room at halftime. This was not what they expected to see.
