BRONCOS AT CARDINALS:
FINAL SCORE: BRONCOS 16, CARDINALS 13: Denver trailed 10-0 in the second half, but came from behind to secure a 16-13 victory on a 44-yard game-winning field goal by kicker Matt Prater.
The Broncos are at University of Phoenix Stadium to close out the preseason against the Arizona Cardinals. Players from both teams are on the field warming up — the Broncos in all-white uniforms, the Cardinals with red jerseys and white pants.
STARTERS WORK OUT: Earlier in the evening, a group of 25 Broncos hit the field for a workout with Strength and Conditioning Coach Luke Richesson. It was essentially the first-team offense and defense, so it likely signaled that group of players wouldn’t suit up for tonight’s game. With just about 25 minutes until kickoff, it became official — those 25 players won’t play.
