Close call, but Broncos move to 4-0

testIt wasn't supposed to be this close, but the Denver Broncos prevailed Sunday over the Detroit Lions 20-16. Jake Plummer turned in another solid performance to provide the offensive spark for a Portis-less Broncos team as he completed 16 straight passes at one point in the game.

Plummer helps keep Broncos perfect -
Sept. 28, 2003 - Jake Plummer made sure the Denver Broncos didn't miss Clinton Portis. Plummer completed 16 straight passes in the first half and threw for two touchdowns as the Broncos held on to beat the Detroit Lions 20-16 Sunday for coach Mike Shanahan's 100th career win.

Plummer Nearly Perfect in First Half - - Andrew Mason
Sunday, September 28, 2003 - By one standard, Jake Plummer started slowly on Sunday. His first pass attempt was incomplete. Then he completed his next 16 in a row to end the first half. Until he made a wayward toss for Reuben Droughns on the first snap coming out of intermission, Plummer racked up the fifth-longest consecutive-completion streak in franchise history, and the second-longest for a single game, exceeded only by Brian Griese's 17-completion streak against the Arizona Cardinals in 2001. It was four short of the overall record, set by Hugh Millen over two games during December 1994.
