Sports: Broncos 20 Panthers 17
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

DENVER Denver's long line of stellar running backs continues. Backup Reuben Droughns (drohns), filling in for injured Quentin Griffin, ran for 193 yards on 30 carries as the Broncos held off Carolina 20-to-17.

The Broncos outgained the Panthers 429 yards to 217, but two interceptions thrown by Jake Plummer nearly ruined their day. Julius Peppers returned one of those interceptions 101 yards from inside the end zone to the Denver three-yard line, the longest interception return without a touchdown in N-F-L history. That set up a Jake Delhomme (del-OHM') one-yard T-D run that put Carolina ahead 17-to-13 in the third quarter, but the Broncos responded with Plummer's 39-yard T-D pass to Ashley Lelie with nine-42 remaining.

Carolina's Matt Willig drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for picking up an official's flag and throwing it after the Panthers were called for a false start before they tried a field goal attempt with just under seven minutes left. That forced the Panthers to punt instead of try a field goal, and the Broncos ran the rest of the time off the clock.
