Paige: Luck smiles on Broncos

NASHVILLE, Tenn. On the west bank of the calm Cumberland River, in a most curious wind, the accidental tourists from Denver pulled off a fortuitous coup d'eTitans.

Quirky and lucky count in victory.

Last season Cincinnati, this year Nashville.

The best cure for a sick running game and a fourth-quarter deficit is happenstance.

How else can the Broncos explain away a nonintentional short kickoff that was misplayed, muffed and made a mess of by the Titans? How else can it be rationalized that an illegal formation penalty on first down at the 1-yard line turns out to be the perfect mistake?

How else can the Broncos vindicate themselves after allowing six sacks, converting only 3-of-15 third downs, being blowtorched for a 98- yard kickoff return, scoring only twice in seven journeys to the red zone and reeking for 19 yards in 20 rushes?

"No, I don't think it was luck," quarterback Kyle Orton said.

All right, resilience, perseverance, persistence. And finding a winning Powerball ticket in a dumpster.

To wit: After all the silly stuff that went down on Sunday afternoon, the Titans were behind 26-20, the ball on their 23 with only 16 seconds left and everybody packing up, when Vince Young threw the football nearly 70 yards toward a streaking Kenny Britt, who was double-defended. Britt should have made the catch, and the Titans could have scored the winning touchdown.

Only he didn't, and they didn't, and the Broncos won.

When they were in danger of being finished in the season, the Broncos found a way and a means to finish.

"When you win one on the road against a team like this, you don't give it back, and we're certainly not going to," Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said.

No, the Broncos slipped softly out of the South, grateful to be 2-2.

They'll need considerably more good fortune in Baltimore this Sunday. They'll need Orton who has thrown 107 passes the past two games to continue to be tough and concentrated, but they definitely don't need him to be the team's leading rusher again. He had three scrambles for 11 yards. The two running backs combined on 17 attempts for 8 yards. Eight is not enough. Eighty is not enough. McDaniels even admitted he gave up on the running game with 9:27 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Everyone else had given up on the Broncos' running game on 9/27.

After the game, Laurence Maroney and Correll Buckhalter dressed and talked at their adjoining cubicles. As they were attempting to leave the locker room, the two were pushed back 2 yards.

The Broncos need for somebody other than Orton & The Four Centaurs receivers Brandon Lloyd (11 catches for 115 yards), Eddie Royal (eight for 113), Jabar Gaffney (five for 51) and Demaryius Thomas (who has become a kick returner; four for 144 yards) to factor.

The Broncos need to play better on the offensive line, the defensive line and the special-teams chorus line.

The Broncos got lucky.

McDaniels got lucky with a victory despite erring by seeking a premature timeout before a field goal just prior to halftime. The Titans were able to respond with a last- second tying field goal.

The Broncos got lucky when a Titans running back had a questionable fumble in the first half at the Broncos' 29. The referee didn't overturn the call, he told Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher, because he didn't have an opposite-field TV angle.

The Broncos also got lucky in the first half when the Titans missed an easy field goal and self-destructed with 10 penalties most on encroachment for 111 yards.

The Broncos got lucky when Orton threw an interception, and the Titans couldn't do anything, and when Orton's pass on fourth-and- goal at the Titans' 3 was incomplete, and the Titans couldn't do anything.

The Broncos got real lucky when they had second-and-25 at midfield with 2:14 showing, and the Titans were guilty of pass interference at the 1-yard line. The Broncos got even luckier on first-and-goal when Orton the Broncos' only running option was stopped shy of the goal, but an illegal formation violation was called. The Broncos were at the 6 right where they wanted to be. They could pass. Touchdown to Buckhalter, who can't run or hide, but can catch.

The Broncos mirror, mirror on the wall got luckiest of all when Matt Prater's kickoff was knocked down by the 15 mph wind, on a 50-degree day, at the Tennessee 25. Titans rookie Marc Mariani looked like he was trying to snag a balloon.

"The wind. That was it," McDaniels said.

"I should have made the play. It was a (bad) feeling," Muff Mariana said.

The Broncos recovered the ball, got another field goal and survived the Young-to-Britt bombarooski.

On the kickoff, "we got a lucky play," Lloyd said. "We don't want it to have to come down to that, it being the game, but we will take it."

For a second year, the Broncos had a fortuitous victory on the road, but luck only helped the rabbit until he lost his foot.

That short kick by Prater and the timed hit by Bruton was COMPLETELY intentional

With no timeouts, catching in-bounds? Unlikely

Only he didn't, and they didn't, and the Broncos won.

Hyperbole

"When you win one on the road against a team like this, you don't give it back, and we're certainly not going to," Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said.

Woody is so smart. So witty. ::)

After the game, Laurence Maroney and Correll Buckhalter dressed and talked at their adjoining cubicles. As they were attempting to leave the locker room, the two were pushed back 2 yards.

See previous comment

The Broncos need for somebody other than Orton & The Four Centaurs receivers Brandon Lloyd (11 catches for 115 yards), Eddie Royal (eight for 113), Jabar Gaffney (five for 51) and Demaryius Thomas (who has become a kick returner; four for 144 yards) to factor.

True

The Broncos got lucky when a Titans running back had a questionable fumble in the first half at the Broncos' 29. The referee didn't overturn the call, he told Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher, because he didn't have an opposite-field TV angle.

Could be looked at the other way, as the Broncos didn't capitalize on the turnover - becuse Woody seems to think that the Titans doing the same was "luck."

The Broncos also got lucky in the first half when the Titans missed an easy field goal and self-destructed with 10 penalties most on encroachment for 111 yards.

The Broncos got lucky when Orton threw an interception, and the Titans couldn't do anything, and when Orton's pass on fourth-and- goal at the Titans' 3 was incomplete, and the Titans couldn't do anything.

It was an all-around ugly game

The Broncos got real lucky when they had second-and-25 at midfield with 2:14 showing, and the Titans were guilty of pass interference at the 1-yard line. The Broncos got even luckier on first-and-goal when Orton the Broncos' only running option was stopped shy of the goal, but an illegal formation violation was called. The Broncos were at the 6 right where they wanted to be. They could pass. Touchdown to Buckhalter, who can't run or hide, but can catch.

The Titans gave up on that play, and they had to interfere, otherwise Gaffney would have made that catch.

The Broncos mirror, mirror on the wall got luckiest of all when Matt Prater's kickoff was knocked down by the 15 mph wind, on a 50-degree day, at the Tennessee 25. Titans rookie Marc Mariani looked like he was trying to snag a balloon.

On the kickoff, "we got a lucky play," Lloyd said. "We don't want it to have to come down to that, it being the game, but we will take it."

I call BS, that was a good special teams play.

For a second year, the Broncos had a fortuitous victory on the road, but luck only helped the rabbit until he lost his foot.

It was just an ugly game all around, but Woody is still and idiot.

Big pile of ****e article.

We were the better team yesterday and fully deserved our win. We gifted the Titans 3 points before HT and gave em 7 with terrible ST play.

Take those away and we win this easy.

Yes, the Titans could have won had other things gone their way. But how is that any different to any game in the NFL ever?

Paige crowns his article with his ridiculous assertion that had Britt caught the Hail Mary the Titans could have won the game. Would have LOVED to see an O-Line run 70 yards, get set and snap the ball for a new play in what, 7 seconds?

Pure luck man, pure luck.

Seriously, I don't know what some people expect at times. We've gone on the road and played against one of the most physical teams in the NFL, a team who are great on both lines and who have the best playmaker in NFL right now.

And we've beaten them.

Yet this asshole feels the need to try and play the win down, to say we were just lucky rather than give any credit to the effort we saw from the team today.

Yes, we got lucky on that kickoff. But the Titans offense had three points to their name the entire second half, smart money says we stuff them even if they don't make a mess of the kickoff.

I don't think we're going to do anything special this year, the running game sucks and I don't think we've enough pass rush to make a real playoff run. But this team left it all on the field against Tennessee, they played their hearts out and they got a thoroughly deserved win for their efforts.

Absolutely sickening reading **** like this.

There were some lucky bounces, but to equate it to the Cincinnati game is a little out there. I don't have the hate for Paige that many around here do, but some of this is just plain dumb.

Wasn't the false start at the one on first down? Or second? Meaning Denver still had two or three tries from the one...

Uhh, if Kenny Britt catches that ball "streaking down the sidelines" he gets tackled almost immediately and their entire offense has to run the length of the field, set up, and snap the ball in just under 8 seconds.

It wasn't a lucky win. Both teams made good plays and both teams made mistakes. We came out on top.

Sure, the short kick took a great bounce off the ground for us. Orton's tipped interception (although a bad decision) went straight back instead of any other direction off the guy's hands. The odds are much better that it gets tipped and falls to the ground harmless. Instead it went straight back to a guy that didn't have to change direction at all. Why is that not lucky for the Titans?

K I'll admit we had some lucky ass plays in that game. The fumble, the kickoff, and I can't think of anything else. But damn they were lucky just to be in that game. I thought we pretty much dominated the game from the second quarter on. We had 76 plays to their 52 and, even though we threw it 50 times, had the ball 34:18 to their 24:42.

I remember with 5 minutes left in the game thinking "this is absolute bull****. Another game we are probably gonna lose that we should've won." The players stepped up in a way I haven't seen since last year at San Diego. We won, we should've won, and luck had nothing to do with it.

And I won't be surprised if we beat Baltimore next week. But only if we get Knowshows 59 amazing yards of production.

I hate this ****. The kickoff was indeed lucky, but e were AHEAD when it happened. Everything else is bull****. Fumbles happen. Missed field goals happen. They are called mistakes. When the Broncos make more mistaken than the other team, they usually lose. When the make less, they usually win. That is football.

This. After the first qtr the Broncos dominated the Titans on both sides of the ball, and the Titans were lucky to get a kickoff return for a TD. Unless you're Hester 3 years ago, a KO return is always lucky.

Even without the muffed kick, saying the Titans would have moved the ball into position to tie the game or win, is a pretty big stretch given the fact that they didn't move the ball at all in the 2nd half.

Yes and they gave you the game winning TD after a stupid 50 yard penalty by Chris Hope.

Tennessee is not a good team anymore. Making stupid mistakes like that is unacceptable. Oh and CJ is done. Fischer pulled a Hermit Edwards and ran CJ dry. He's on pace to have over 400 carries. We all know what that does to a RB.

Gaffney was open and the pass interference was the only thing preventing an easy touchdown. It was a pretty smart move, considering our redzone problems and the turnover-on-downs the series prior.

IF Hope doesn't make that Penalty, Gaffney catches the ball for a touchdown.

Probably best for Hope to make that penalty as our red zone woes almost struck again.

Listen folks, its not a challenge to the Broncos' collective manhood to admit that there were some fortunate moments that happened late in that game. Moments that had the refs or the mistakes of other players convened to provide opportunities that were not directly earned, would not have happened otherwise.

In the waning moments, the offense finally bowed up and converted in the red zone. Lets focus on that rather than ignoring the fact that the Broncos finally had some luck. Its not a bad thing to be lucky. The Broncos needed it, and thankfully got a little.

Most games come down to two or three plays that have to be made to win the game. yesterday we got those plays and a lucky bounce

SF had the game until Clements got stripped.

Indy had an INT on the last drive go right threw Hayden hands otherwise they have the shot at the last FG

Phiily mismanaged a 1st and goal at the one to make it first and goal at the 6 had to settle for 3 and lost by five

There are only a few really good teams that can over come mistakes and we are not one of them but niether are about 25 other teams

It's painfully obvious if we had any sort of running game to keep Orton from getting killed every Sunday Denver has a shot in any game

Man if somehow we come out of October 3-3 we should start to roll once the Oline gets healthy

There are "lucky" plays in every single football game, if that's what you want to call it. And if you can't get enough of them on your side, or if they're all falling for the other team it's really hard to beat a football team.

To come out here and compare the win to the Bengals game is outright, retarded.

Yesterday, I'm not sure what plays were "lucky." We played hard, it is what it is.

You can call the kick off lucky, I call it opportunity.

The returner had caught the ball in the air - it was Bruton's hustle that knocked the ball out. He launched his body into the returner which forced the fumble backwards in which Vaughn's hustle allowed him to be first to the ball.

The kick was extremely high... go ahead and call that luck but let's not act like our team didn't have to make a play on the ball... it didn't just fall into our hands.

I agree with a lot of what this article states. We were fortunate to win. How many games do you win giving up special teams tds and not running the football at all?

Who cares though a win is a win. For Broncos to make playoffs, which is a longshot IMO, they will need 2-3 more games they win just like this one.

Ravens scare the crap out of me. I am worried for Ortons safety because they can rush the passer so well and we don't run the ball.

If we ever had a plan to keep orton from getting whacked now would be a good time to implement it.

I didnt say that the Broncos didnt "outplay" the Titans. It looked like neither team was able to seize control of the game at all until the Broncos made that one play, that one late TD that forced the Titans to respond. The Titans couldnt respond...they made the most egregious mistake of the game instead.

The Broncos, just like last year, can be praised for their effort and their never-say-die attitude. They can be praised for their defensive commitment and for Orton's focus. For Royal's production. For Brandon Lloyd finding his career again. For DT's awesome kick returning.

I wouldnt say that they outplayed the Titans by a margin significant enough to be proud of, but I would definitely credit the Broncos for hanging in the game and giving themselves that one shot, that one chance to seize the win...and then capitalizing on it.

He's making it sound like the Titans beat themselves on offense.

What about the play of our defensive line against the run? The play of Ayers? The safety blitzes by Dawkins forcing arrant throws?

Woody's also acting like every game won should be won without any lucky bounces, etc.

He flat out said on ATH today that the Broncos "aren't any good" when discussing the Ravens schedule.

Woody is so full of **** comparing this win to the Cinci win. We stop their top back and played great defense in the 4th quarter. Woody also thinks it was lucky that the Titans didnt score, why? If we dont recover the kickoff, he assumes the Titans score on that drive, why? I guess it was hard for him to write an article of feel good nuggets so he had to use his cutesy journalism 101 metaphors.

I agree with a lot of what this article states. We were fortunate to win. How many games do you win giving up special teams tds and not running the football at all?

Who cares though a win is a win. For Broncos to make playoffs, which is a longshot IMO, they will need 2-3 more games they win just like this one.

Ravens scare the crap out of me. I am worried for Ortons safety because they can rush the passer so well and we don't run the ball.

If we ever had a plan to keep orton from getting whacked now would be a good time to implement it.

but it isnt like we won 13 to 10. We didnt score on ST (even though we got some good returns) and earned the points we did get. Penalties werent based on bad calls but bad execution by the Titans and we take advantage of those. You can say, "We won despite such and such." Unless you play a near perfect game, this can be said almost any Sunday. I say we played pretty damn well for having a crappy ST all but the end of the game and no running game. We compensated with a great QB being accurate enough to lead us to victory.

i unlike many on here am actually a fan of woody paige...

that article made me a little bit less of a fan of his today...

that article was terrible...credit to Orton and the defense needs to be the highlight, not "luck"...that's just plain embarrassing...

How can anyone be a fan of Woody. That' asswipe has been a reed in the wind since day one. He'll blow a team one week and fire shots at them the next. I wish the dillwad would have stayed the **** out of denver. Can't stand to read his childish bull****.

I love Woody! But, who cares...a win is a win (period)!

Like McD said...we're not going to give it back! And, McD did admit that he wished he hadn't called that TO before the half. I give him kudos for being honest!

We were fortunate that the Titans made that killer mistake there, but to be fair, the Titans chose to use a 7th round pick to return that ball and our kicker did an amazing job in putting him in a position to fail.

Prater has been one of the brightest spots on the team.

didnt that 7th rounder score a TD on a return earlier in the game? Works both ways. Getting the kickoff doesnt guarantee the Titans even a field goal attempt.

He did, but according to Solomon Wilcotts, that play was all Ahmad Hall. Ha!

Denver played a solid game and carried the play for large portions of this game. If it wasn't for the Titans getting a KR for a TD and some poor clock management before the half that resulted in a free FG, we would have grabbed this game by the throat, earlier and completely beat that team down. We earned everything we got from this game. It wasn't about luck at all.

I usually agree with him but this article is just lazy, like he mailed this one in. I'm guessing he was back in his home state and wanted to get his column in early and hit the town.

i think he hit the town before he wrote this drunk dribble of sheat.
