John Elway Discusses 51-48 Win Over Cowboys

In a match-up where the Cowboys appeared to have a lock as the clock was running down in the fourth quarter, it was the Broncos’ defense that came up with the play of the game making an interception late in the fourth quarter deep in Cowboys’ territory. However, according to Elway, that didn’t erase the mistakes made earlier in the game.

“If you look at the first four games compared to the last game, obviously we weren’t in a dog fight in the first four,” Elway said. “We started out that way but we kind of ran away from everybody in the second half. This one was a dog fight. We didn’t have our best, our ‘A’ game. And even though offensively we played well, we slowed down in the second half and defensively struggled a little bit. But a lot of that credit goes to Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys offense and the fact that they played very well. They made a bunch of big plays. They kept battling. So it was a good win for us.”

Elway told Hall, “We made a lot of mistakes on both sides of the ball and so hopefully we’ll get that cleared up,” he said. “It was good for the young guys. We had three guys go down.  Woodyard went down. Ayers went down and Chris Harris all went down so we had to have guys come off the bench and step in. It was a wake-up call for them also in the fact that it can happen at any point in time and when it does happen they have to be ready to play.”

When asked about the matchup with the Jaguars, Elway said he wasn’t certain if the Broncos would be ready for the Week 6 matchup due to certain player’s injuries, but said the game with Jacksonville was one that would show what the team is made of. Listen to Podcast.
