Just Short in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The home fans who persevered at EverBank Field through blistering heat, driving rain and a 33-minute lightning delay went wild when Jacksonville’s Daryl Smith picked off Kyle Orton in the final minute of Sunday’s regular season opener.

The Jaguars’ interception sealed the Broncos’ fate — a 24-17 loss — in a back-and-forth contest. But ultimately, the miscue that extinguished Denver’s final drive proved the last unfinished opportunity.

Using timely defense and an at-times explosive offense, the Broncos played themselves into position to improve to 1-0 on the young season, but they never found the the final-quarter fireworks to make it happen.
