1st Half Notes
-

As expected the Broncos come out running, as Quentin Griffin leads off with three consecutive runs for thirteen-yards. During the first half Griffin carries for 39-yards on 11 runs. Jake Plummer connects on four of six passes for 35-yards, the majority of which went to wide receiver Rod Smith who finished the quarter with three receptions for 31-yards.

Defensively the Broncos remain tight, despite the absence of Trevor Pryce, who is sidelined with lower back problems. Replacing Pryce in the lineup is four-year veteran Reggie Hayward. Denver's defense hold the Jaguars to three scoreless possessions, but the Broncos special teams unit gives up a hole on a Micah Knorr punt, and Jermaine Lewis returns the ball 50-yards to the Denver 32-yard line.

With a short field the Jaguars open up the scoring with a 12-yard pass from Byron Leftwich to Ernest Wilford and Jacksonville grabs a 7-0 lead just moments into the second quarter.

Denver responds with a fairly impressive drive, but on third down from the Jaguars 30-yard line Plummer fumbles the shotgun snap and the Broncos settle for a Jason Elam field goal from 47-yards out, narrowing the gap at 7-3.

Neither team is able to mount anything offensively until the Broncos final drive of the half where they march 76-yards over 10-plays giving Jason Elam his second field goal of the game from 22-yards out as time expires in the first half.
