Make it two straight wins for the Denver Broncos.
They rallied to defeat the Indianapolis Colts, 25-13, Thursday night at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
After a slow start that featured an interception that set up the Colts first touchdown, the Broncos got the offense in gear.
Starting quarterback Trevor Siemian sprained his shoulder while being sacked and on came back-up Brock Osweiler. He proceeded to complete 12-of-17 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns. The first was a 22-yard scoring pass to Cody Latimer that gave the Broncos a 14-13 lead with 4:16 left in the third quarter.
Soon after, Osweiler found Jeff Heuerman down the middle for a 54 yard touchdown pass, the Broncos' longest play from scrimmage this season. Osweiler's two-point conversion pass to Latimer put Denver up 22-13 with 2:37 left in the third.
The Broncos cranked up the running game in the second half. C.J. Anderson racked up a season-high 158 yards on 30 carries. The Broncos piled up 213 yards rushing on 45 carries, a healthy average of 4.7 yards per carry.
The Broncos won two straight games for the first time since opening the season with wins over the Chargers and Cowboys.
