He became the Broncos’ sixth starting quarterback since Peyton Manning retired.
The Broncos didn’t do much on their first drive, going three-and-out after gaining 7 yards. But directed a nine-play, 63-yard touchdown drive on the team’s second chance.
Sutton caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Allen on a 50-50 ball in the corner of the end zone. Sutton leaped over Denzel Ward for the highlight reel catch.
It came on Allen’s seventh career attempt.
The Broncos lead 7-0 with 6:09 remaining in the first quarter.
