Broncos have “top 10 defense,” Jets say after New York quarterback Zach Wilson hammered at Mile High

Broncos have “top 10 defense,” Jets say after New York quarterback Zach Wilson hammered at Mile High

Count Zach Wilson a Broncos admirer.

Not a fan, mind you. Not after the way Denver’s defense kept the kid’s head spinning for about three hours straight.

“I would say they’re a really good defense, of course,” the Jets rookie quarterback said after being harassed for five sacks, two interceptions and nine QB hits in a 26-0 shellacking by Denver in the Broncos’ home opener.

“You’ve seen what (Broncos coach) Vic Fangio has done over the years. They do a good job of eliminating (explosive plays) down the field. So we knew that coming into the game, I (would have to) do a better job of getting the ball underneath … but (they’re) a very good defense.”

Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and a former BYU star, completed just 19 of 35 throws for 160 yards and was picked off twice, posting a 42.6 passer rating.

Meanwhile, the Jets managed just 162 total yards and averaged 3.1 yards per play as the Broncos produced their first shutout since Week 6 of the 2019 campaign, Fangio’s first at the helm, and third against the Jets since 2005.

“They’re definitely a top 10 defense in the league at this point,” Jets guard Brad Van Roten said of the Broncos’ veteran defensive unit. “And they did a great job scheming us up.”

How great? Of the Jets’ 11 drives, eight were over within four plays or fewer. And only one of those 11 — New York’s eighth of the afternoon and third of the second half — took the ball past Denver’s 40-yard line.

“It’s not even schemes,” Van Roten continued. “It’s just guys making plays. They have a lot of good playmakers on that side of the ball.

Formation of Vermont’s Climate Action Plan gets underway

Formation of Vermont’s Climate Action Plan gets underway

(WVNY/WFFF) – Under Vermont’s Global Warming Solutions Act, the goal is to cut pollution in half by the year 2030.

To meet this goal, members of Vermont’s Climate Council and the Agency of Nature Resources are working with other stakeholders to draft the state’s Climate Action Plan.

And they want the public’s input to shape the plan.

“So it’s really important that we’re not going to address climate change unless we have people on board,” said Cara Pike, executive director of Climate Access.

Pike runs a non-profit focused on rallying support for climate and clean energy solutions. She and her colleagues were hired by the state to engage communities across Vermont in conversations about reducing the impacts of global warming.

“What we’re really aiming to do is raise awareness of climate change, but even more importantly give Vermonters an opportunity to weigh in on the solutions that should be prioritized,” said Pike.

Participants gathered at Elmore State Park, on Tuesday, separated into groups to discuss their concerns and how they’ve been personally affected by climate change.

“I and many of the people in the group felt stressed out for our children and for the kinds of changes our children may have to deal with…I could see it on everyone’s face. Just this sense of it’s going to be really embarrassing to tell them why we didn’t do something different when we could,” said Jessica Seddon from Morrisville.

Seddon works for World Resources Institute, a non-profit designed to put communities on a more sustainable path. She says she’s a climate advocate both professionally and personally.  

“So my professional life is very global. I work on this on a global comparative basis. For me, it was really interesting to hear about how to finance some of the newer infrastructure and changes we need to make and what the politics of those finances might be,” said Seddon.

Pike said she is pleased to see community members get involved and encourages all Vermonters to take part in the other in-person and online meetings in September and October.

“It’s great to see so many people out and so passionate about Vermont and protecting what is so great about Vermont, said Pike, “but people really wanting the state to be bold.”

Along with colleagues, she plans to present the information collected at these meetings to the Vermont Climate Council by October.

Climate leaders kicked off the first of four in-person meetings designed to create Vermont’s Climate Action Plan.

The next in-person meetings are scheduled:

  • Sept. 22 in East Dorset,
  • Sept. 23 in Island Pond, and 
  • Sept. 26 in Colchester. For those who can’t attend in person, there will be several virtual meetings in early October.

Broncos Briefs: KJ Hamler, Graham Glasgow, Dalton Risner unable to finish win over Jets

Broncos Briefs: KJ Hamler, Graham Glasgow, Dalton Risner unable to finish win over Jets

The Broncos’ already-lengthy injury list grew by three starters during Sunday’s 26-0 win over the New York Jets, further depleting the team’s depth.

Receiver KJ Hamler (knee), right guard Graham Glasgow (knee) and left guard Dalton Risner (foot) were injured and did not return.

Hamler landed awkwardly while attempting to catch a downfield throw from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater late in the first half. Hamler needed assistance from the medical staff to get to the locker room.

Glasgow, who started after missing Week 2 due to an irregular heartbeat in Week 1, walked gingerly off the field and tried several pass protection sets on the sideline. He did not return, though, and was replaced by Netane Muti.

Risner was sidelined late in the third quarter and replaced by rookie Quinn Meinerz, who made his NFL regular season debut.

“We should know more as the week goes on,” coach Vic Fangio said.

Broncos game balls, notable Week 3 quotes following win over Jets and looking ahead to Week 4 versus Ravens

Broncos game balls, notable Week 3 quotes following win over Jets and looking ahead to Week 4 versus Ravens

Game balls, quotable and a look ahead following the Broncos’ Week 3 win over the Jets to improve to 3-0.

Game Balls

Broncos pass rush

Jets QB Zach Wilson was already out of his element; throw in a relentless Broncos pass rush that didn’t let up in the second half, and the result was a defense that had fun all game long. Linebacker Alexander Johnson got the party going with a 14-yard sack of Wilson in the first quarter. Then Shelby Harris, Von Miller and Malik Reed all had sacks in the second quarter, and Johnson added another in the fourth. New York lost 41 total yards on five sacks, and even when the rookie wasn’t going down, he was under constant duress in the pocket.

Tim Patrick

The Broncos signed him to the practice squad in 2017, and Patrick’s been bootstrapping his way to NFL relevancy ever since. That continued Sunday with five catches for 98 yards as Patrick abused Jets cornerbacks and asserted himself as a vertical threat. The Broncos threw at Patrick on their first two offensive plays, and he hauled them in, and also had a 31-yard catch in the fourth quarter that set Denver up at the goal line. With Jerry Jeudy on IR and KJ Hamler potentially sidelined going forward, Patrick must continue to be Mr. Reliable.

Broncos secondary

After picking off Trevor Lawrence twice in last week’s win over the Jaguars, the Broncos replicated that ball-hawking with a pair of interceptions off Wilson. No doubt aided by the pass rush, the secondary limited Wilson to 19-of-35 through the air with a piddly 42.6 rating. With the Jets driving into Broncos territory in the fourth quarter, Justin Simmons secured his first INT of 2021 by undercutting Wilson’s throw and nearly returning it for a touchdown. Later in the quarter, rookie Caden Sterns iced the win with an interception off a tipped pass that he took back for a 43-yard return. Wilson never looked comfortable in his reads.

Daniel Carlson’s field goal gives Raiders 31-28 OT win over Miami

Daniel Carlson’s field goal gives Raiders 31-28 OT win over Miami

LAS VEGAS — Reigning AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Daniel Carlson’s 22-yard field goal as time expired in overtime lifted the Las Vegas Raiders to a 31-28 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

It marked the second time in the Raiders’ first three games – both at home – they overcame a two-touchdown deficit to win in overtime, also doing so against Baltimore in Week 1 on “Monday Night Football.”

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr found Bryan Edwards for 34 yards before Peyton Barber put together runs of 27 and 8 yards to put Las Vegas on the Dolphins’ 11-yard line to eventually set up the winning score.

Carr completed 26 of 43 pass attempts for 386 yards and two touchdowns.

For the third straight game, Carr used his talented receiving depth, as the eight-year veteran completed passes to nine targets, led by Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller, who each had a team-high five receptions. Renfrow also scored a touchdown.

With star running back Josh Jacobs sidelined with an ankle injury, Barber led the rushing game with 111 yards on 23 carries and one touchdown.

And while the Raiders’ offense outgained Miami 497-330, it was their special teams unit and defense that ignited the comeback after Miami scored the game’s first 14 points.

One play after Zay Jones raced downfield on a punt to down the ball on the 1-yard line, cornerback Casey Hayward Jr. caught Miami receiver Jaylen Waddle on a screen pass in the end zone for a safety.

Carlson, who starred at The Classical Academy in Colorado Springs, booted a 50-yard field goal to get the Raiders within nine. Then, after a huge defensive stop, Las Vegas drove 95 yards to cut Miami’s lead to 14-12. Fullback Alec Ingold was rewarded by having his number called after recovering Barber’s fumble on the goal line on the previous play.

The Raiders scored on their next two possessions when Carr and Renfrow connected for a 12-yard strike, and Barber dived over the pack for a 1-yard plunge to open a 25-12 lead.

The Dolphins weren’t done, though.

After Miami’s Jason Sanders made it a one-score game with a 46-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter, Jacoby Brissett scrambled on fourt-and-goal for a 1-yard touchdown with :02 left in regulation. Brissett’s passed to William Fuller for the 2-point conversion forced overtime.

The teams exchanged field goals in overtime before Carlson’s winner.

Broncos Report Card: Defense leads the way in shutout of Jets

Broncos Report Card: Defense leads the way in shutout of Jets

Offense — B

It was an efficient-but-unspectacular game for the Broncos’ offense, which was the requirement against the Jets. The Broncos gained 344 yards, including a season-high 121 rushing (although only 3.3-yard average) and one touchdown apiece from tailbacks Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was 19 of 25 for 235 yards and enters October without an interception. Receivers Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton had five catches on five targets apiece and minus Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and possibly KJ Hamler (knee), the focus will be on Sutton and Patrick. Left guard Dalton Risner (foot) and right guard Graham Glasgow (knee) were unable to finish the game. Williams’ goal-line fumble in the fourth quarter was one of the few negatives.

Defense — A

A shutout is a shutout is a shutout, right? The Broncos skunked an opponent for the second time in coach Vic Fangio’s two-plus years; the first was 16-0 over Tennessee, which brought about the end of the Marcus Mariota Era. The Jets didn’t cross 100 yards offense until the final minute of the third quarter and the pass rush got going after being semi-quiet in Weeks 1-2. The Broncos sacked Zach Wilson five times, including two by inside linebacker Alexander Johnson. Interceptions by safeties Justin Simmons and Caden Sterns moved the Broncos to a plus-3 turnover ratio through three games. Life without inside linebacker Josey Jewell (out for the year following pectoral surgery) and outside linebacker Bradley Chubb (out at least a month following ankle surgery) couldn’t have gone much better.

Denver American Indian Festival attracts thousands with goal of keeping culture, tradition alive

Denver American Indian Festival attracts thousands with goal of keeping culture, tradition alive

The Denver-made soaps for sale at one of the tables at the 8th annual Denver American Indian Festival were infused with essential oils and scents like powwow dirt, tipi campfire and sweetgrass soap — ingredients sourced from Native and Indigenous people across the U.S. for Colorado’s first Native American soap company.

Lakota Body Care owners connected with other American Indian people at the festival Saturday and Sunday, and also educated those who were willing to listen. The event at Riverdale Regional Park and Fairgrounds in Adams County included traditional American Indian dances, musical performances and food. Vendors sold artwork, jewelry and other handmade products, while other booths provided historical information and resources.

“Because of colonization and the genocide of our ancestors, that is the reason we work hard and keep our culture and tradition alive, to take up space in this land that was supposed to be ours,” co-owner Akalei Brown said. “People think we don’t exist anymore.”

Brown, who is of Taos Pueblo and Kanaka-Maoil (Native Hawaiian) heritage, runs the business with her husband and 9-year-old daughter. It was the young girl’s idea to start making the soaps.

“I do it for everybody, for the family, to feel strong and proud,” Haleakala Brown said of the work she does with her parents.

Akalei Brown said she is one generation removed from Indian boarding schools — where the U.S. government forcibly took Native children from their homes to these schools to “assimilate” them.

Her parents took them to powwows and rodeos, but she wanted to ensure that more of their culture survived and was passed down to other generations.
