Broncos WR Sanders (ankle) exits game

Broncos WR Sanders (ankle) exits game

For a team that has spent the recent weeks being discredited for all of the things it wasn't doing or was simply doing badly, there's a lot of credit to be doled out for what it accomplished on Sunday night.

Eli Manning threw for 128 yards with one touchdown, tight end Evan Engram broke out for 82 yards and a touchdown and tailback Orleans Darkwa topped 100 rushing yards for the first time in his career.

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders left Denver's Sunday night game against the New York Giants late in the third quarter due to a right ankle injury.

The Broncos had successfully used C.J.

The Giants arrived to Denver a wounded and desperate team.

Thomas a bright spot.

There was Jenkins ripping the ball out of the hands of Denver's best receiver, Demaryius Thomas, after Thomas had converted a key first down on a fourth-down play in the fourth quarter with the Broncos trying to mount a comeback. In Denver, the Giants were poised and controlled the tempo all night. Jason Pierre-Paul celebrated Watson's absence by brushing by Turner for a critical third-quarter sack of Trevor Siemian.

Siemian struggled for much of the first half against the Giants. It did not matter, as the Giants defense really came to play in this one. But he lost a fumble in the fourth quarter after gaining a first down on a fourth-down play.

The Broncos signed kicker Brandon McManus to a three-year extension in September, making him the fourth-highest-paid kicker in the National Football League with a deal worth $11.2 million and $6 million guaranteed. A second-quarter drive that pushed the Broncos into goal-to-go ended with three consecutive incompletions, forcing the Broncos to settle for a 28-yard McManus field goal.

Jenkins, who was criticized for walking off the field early in last Sunday's loss to the Chargers, starred for the Giants in the win.

It was already the second wayward attempt on a kick of shorter than 40 yards for McManus. He also had a 53-yard attempt that was blocked.

Right tackle Justin Pugh said McAdoo's theme was about "just go play for each other". Schefter noted that the Broncos quarterback isn't expected to miss time with the injury.

It was the first time this season that Denver allowed an opponent to score on its opening drive. The healthy inactive players were running back De'Angelo Henderson, offensive tackle Donald Stephenson, defensive end Zach Kerr, cornerback Lorenzo Doss and nose tackle Kyle Peko.
