Broncos run away, take 28-10 lead

Well, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast. The Bucs took a 10-7 lead into the half, but the Broncos took a 28-10 lead before the third quarter even ended.

That was the consequence of two star players on both sides of the ball. Demaryius Thomas destroyed the Tampa Bay secondary through the air, as they simply have no one who can cover him. And on the other side of the ball, Von Miller has constantly harassed the Tampa Bay offense. He's repeatedly hit Josh Freeman, beaten Demar Dotson, and then punctuated his performance with a pick-six.

That pick-six came about because Josh Freeman was hit as he dropped back to throw, and Miller could simply walk into the endzone. That makes this a three-score game, and the Bucs are struggling to find ways to come back in this one. Can they limit Peyton Manning and get some big plays on offense?
