The Denver Broncos waited too long to break a 4-1 record at Heinz Field with a frustrating performance during their 27:19 loss to Pittsburgh. It was the Steelers ‘first win since Week 1 and at the same time extended the Broncos’ losing streak to two games.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made an unlikely comeback with just one pass, though his pass for Courtland Sutton was intercepted in the end zone just before time ran out. The Broncos defeated Pittsburgh 13-3 in the final quarter, in stark contrast to their icy first half.

Bridgewater explained how he saw the final game and why he couldn’t quite convert to reach the Broncos within a two-point conversion after the tie.

“The defense attorney covered it well,” Bridgewater told reporters on October 10th. “I was just trying to shoulder Court [Sutton] to at least give him a chance to do a play. Like I said, the defender covered it so well that there wasn’t really a window to throw a tall, tall ball outside, so it just sucks to end a game like this but the fight that we saw on this team in the fourth quarter it was impressive. So [there’s] There are many positive aspects that we can take away, we can’t just let this feeling of losing stay that way. “

Denver scored three points in each of the first two quarters before being knocked out in a crucial game in the third. Pittsburgh’s 24-6 lead at the start of the fourth was critical to the overall result and ultimately the reason for the Broncos’ second consecutive loss. Denver’s attacking leader echoed the sentiment during his post-game press conference.

“It just has to get better,” said Bridgewater. “Start faster, we’ve been preaching for the past few weeks, started fast and it finally caught up with us today, man.”

Getting back to their roots could be the spark the Broncos need to get started early. Rest assured, you will be brainstorming all week.

“We may have to do the way the colleges do the goal line in pregame or something,” said Bridgewater. “Just hit the head or something to get the blood flowing, the juices running, but we’ll find out this week. We have no choice.”

Denver had its chances of moving to the top of AFC West, but a lackluster three-quarter game cost them dearly. In the first half, Pittsburgh held the ball nine minutes longer than their opponents, while playing four to six in third place. Disappointingly, the Broncos were drastically worse; to complete only one of six third-down attempts.

Overall, Denver was in third place 2 to 12, a staggering 16.7% conversion rate. Unlike in the first three games, Denver was also defeated across the board in the possession battle with a minus of seven minutes. The Baltimore Ravens also defeated the Broncos in a watch fight a week earlier.

“It’s hard to win a game like this,” said Bridgewater. “Of course we just have to keep our heads down, man, and control what we can control – how hard we work, how we go about each day, and we have to come in with the mindset to get better.

“We can’t wait for the game to get out of hand to have a sense of urgency, we can’t wait until we’re down. We just have to get out the way we played in the fourth quarter [then] We give ourselves the chance to win a lot of games.

Despite Broncos Country anger over the Pennsylvania presentation, all is not lost as the 2021 NFL season is still so young. Your quarterback doesn’t give up anytime soon.

“We’re sitting here with the chance to come home 3-2, wish we could have been 4-1, but we have so much more to do.

“It is very important to end this losing streak. Obviously nobody plays the game to lose, nobody likes the feeling of losing, especially after the game. It’s one of those things where we bring people, our leaders, captains of this team together and just come up with a plan of action on how to change the mindset and get the negativity out of the way. At the end of the day the boys will run to their cell phones and hear how bad we are, how good we are, how well they played, how badly someone else played. “

As always, Bridgewater remains calm despite the chaos around him. Now he and the veterans of the team will come together to catapult the Broncos back into the Victory Column.

“It’s all about what you believe, and this is where we will come together, advise the leadership and just control the narrative,” he said. “It’s never as bad as it seems, it’s never as good as it seems. We just need to have this mindset – be the same person every day, win or lose, and help this team move in the right direction. “
