Just as with the defense, Broncos TV has counted down the top five plays on offense from the 2010 season.
They are as follows:
5) Against the Seattle Seahawks, Kyle Orton pitched the ball to Knowshon Moreno, who took off running to his right. The running back then threw the ball back to Orton, who launched it downfield to Eddie Royal for a 34-yard gain to the 1-yard line.
“Awesome call,” Orton said. “Those are fun plays. It gets the crowd going, it gets us going. I had a big smile on my face just calling it in the huddle. Knowshon gave me a good throw and Eddie made a nice catch and almost got in.”
4) Brandon Lloyd’s 37-yard, circus grab over two Kansas City defensive backs in a win in Week 8. The NFL’s leading receiver finished the game with 90 yards and two touchdowns.
3) Jabar Gaffney’s diving, 40-yard catch in the middle of the end zone for Orton’s third touchdown against the Chiefs in the same game.
2) Lloyd’s touchdown reception on a dead sprint against the Ravens. The Pro Bowler kept control of the ball as he dove and slid out of the back of the end zone.
1) Tim Tebow’s 40-yard touchdown run in his first start as a professional, one he admitted came on a broken play. The called handoff to Correll Buckhalter turned into a designed quarterback sneak, thanks to a big block by Buckhalter.
“I just ran it and Buck went and led up for me and made a good block, I cut off his block and we scored,” Tebow smiled. “It ended up working.”
In the end, it was the longest scoring run by a quarterback in Broncos history.
