Cody Latimer: Battling for the No. 3 wide receiver spot on the roster, Latimer made the most of his opportunities Thursday, making catches on all seven of his targets for 54 yards.
Jamal Carter: The college free-agent safety out of Miami had a quarterback pressure, a fumble recovery, three tackles and was tight in coverage on a key third-and-goal stop in the fourth quarter.
Chris Lewis-Harris: The cornerback made three tackles, broke up a third-down pass and made a tackle on special teams as he fights to make the roster.
Menelik Watson: The Broncos right tackle, signed by the team in free agency, allowed a sack on his first play and was flagged for an illegal hands to the face penalty later in the opening drive.
Run game: The Broncos struggled to open up holes in the run game, tallying only 40 yards on 15 carries in the first half, an average of just 2.7 yards per carry.
Penalties: There was little offensive rhythm to be found for the Broncos for much of the game, and penalties did them no favors. They were penalized seven times for 46 yards in the first half alone, miscues that consistently stunted drives.
