End of third quarter notes …
Denver’s successful instant-replay challenge allowed them to clinch a stop of the Rams at the St. Louis 41 and force a second conseuctive Matt Turk punt. Darrent Williams was in to field the punt and let it bounce safely over his head for a touchback that coupled with a Rams face-mask penalty to give Denver the football at its 35-yard-line.
The Broncos used their first timeout with six seconds left in the quarter, getting ready to snap the ball on second-and-10 from the 37. They are, however, out of replay challenges.
At this moment, the AFC North has one win (Thursday night) and two of its teams ahead by comfortable margins. Cleveland is the only outfit of the quartet trailing, but the cumulative score right now is AFC North 75, Opponents 33.
