The Denver Broncos are in the midst of a two-game losing streak.
Denver dropped its second-straight game to a reeling San Diego Chargers team on Thursday night.
The Broncos fell behind early and never recovered in a 21-13 loss.
“We were terrible in the first quarter, something we know we have to fix,” Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said after the game, per Troy Renck of ABC 7 in Denver.
Denver saw the return of second-year quarterback Trevor Siemian. Siemian started after missing last week’s game with a shoulder injury and tossed 50 passes for just 230 yards and a touchdown.
Sieman’s progress was stymied by sloppy offensive line play that saw every starter pick up a penalty. Yellow laundry was all over the field for the Broncos on Thursday night. Denver was called for 12 penalties for 103 yards in the loss.
Broncos played in San Diego without head coach Gary Kubiak, who stayed in Denver to recover from what is being called a “complex migraine condition.”
Joe DeCamillis served as the team’s interim coach in Kubiak’s absence.
DeCamillis was noticeably disappointed following the team’s lackluster performance.
“Not well,” DeCamillis said. “We lost. I am sick to my stomach. I hate losing. Wasn’t his damn fault we lost.”
Denver will now have a little extra time to go back to the drawing board. The Broncos have 10 days until the team faces the Houston Texans.
