Default Bronco scoring D - better than stats look

We are all aware that we have given up some scores in garbage time to make some of these recent games closer than they actually were. I hadn't realized how many until I started looking at things closer.

Since the bye week, this defense has surrendered 15 TD's in 10 games. That alone is pretty impressive - allowing 1.5 TD's over an extended run is pretty good. However, out of those 15 TD's, 8 were garbage time.

That's right - over our last 10 games, the Bronco D has allowed only 7 non-garbage time TD's. wow.

Here is a complete list of TD's allowed since the bye week, followed by quarter and the score when the TD occurred. I'm defining garbage time as a deficit of 14 or more in the 4th quarter.
  • Darren Sproles 29 yard pass 2nd 7-0
  • Jimmy Graham 18 yard pass 4th 34-7
  • AJ Green 10 yard pass 3rd 17-3
  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis 2 yard rush 4th 17-13
  • Greg Olsen 4 yard pass from Newton 1st 0-0
  • Greg Olsen 5 yard pass 4th 29-7
  • Danario Alexander 8 yard pass 3rd 24-9
  • Danario Alexander 21 yard pass 4th 30-16
  • Dallas Clark 11 yard pass 1st 7-3
  • Mike Williams 5 yard pass 4th 31-16
  • Darren McFadden 6 yard pass 2nd 13-0
  • DHB 56 yard pass 4th 26-7
  • Dennis pitta 31 yard pass 4th 31-3
  • Dennis Pitta 61 yard pass 4th 34-10
  • Greg Little 6 yard pass 4th 31-6

A couple other things to note:
  • the D has allowed only two non-garbage time TD's over the past six games.
  • only two 1st quarter TD's have been allowed over this span.
  • only 4 first half TD's were allowed over this span.
  • The D allowed a total of 151 points over these 10 games - 15.1 ppg. Excluding garbage time TD's, that works out to 9.5 points per game.

All I know is that it's been smooth sailing since the Chargers D gave up 5 garbage time TDs in one game one half.
