off to nice start .. Swaine sack, forced fumble, and recovered fumble at 50 yard line. Kolbe comes out sharp but stalled and kicked 35 yd FG.

can't get video feed, liking on radio feed and live stats link.

Denver would always do this. Never was a fan of it. Go for it.

tend to agree that is 4 down territory given risk of touchback on punt. but we did pin them at their 6.

It did work- and now we have great field position to start the next drive after forcing a 3 and out, but hindsight is 20/20... the risk of the touchback is not worth it for me... o well... at least it worked this time
