Through nine weeks, the Broncos have done the majority of their damage in the third and fourth quarters.
In the second half of games, Denver has outscored its opponents 166 to 67.
The team hopes that formula holds true for the second half of the season.
“It’s all about these next eight games,” tight end Jacob Tamme said. “Now it’s on to the second half of the season and on to the Panthers. You look at it through sort of that lens, and you’re able to see where you kind of stand, but then you come back and get ready to go one week at a time.”
As the team enters the third quarter of the season, it will try to — at least — match its 3-1 performance in the second quarter of the slate.
Fox said that’s the goal each quarter, and the Broncos are only one game off that pace in the first half of the campaign.
“This next quarter has two road games, that’s the first thing that jumps out at you, and two division games,” quarterback Peyton Manning said. “Even though it’s a quarter, you still take those one at a time. We are all about the Carolina Panthers.”
