Denver gave up a franchise-record 70 points to Miami on Sunday, prompting social media posts from former players.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Well, that was ugly.
The Denver Broncos gave up a franchise record 70 points to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The 50-point loss sparked social media posts from former players.
It was the worst defensive performance in Broncos history and it could have been worse, but instead of kicking a field goal for 73 points just before the game ended, Miami coach Mike McDaniel knelt deep into Denver territory to get the ball on downs to rotate.
The Broncos are 0-3, while Miami remains undefeated at 3-0 and retains its No. 1 offensive ranking in the NFL.
The Broncos gave up 35 points in the first half for the first time since 2010 as they fell behind the Oakland Raiders 38-0 and lost 59-14. Denver gave up 70 points in a game for the first time in its 64-year history.
