AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders



Broncos first-round WR Jerry Jeudy explained that his two drops in Week 1 were plays he usually makes and were a result of him not properly concentrating on the ball before running. 

“Those are plays I make usually,” Jeudy said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post. “It just seemed worse because it was my first game. Those two dropped passes made it seem like I was nervous. That wasn’t the case. It was just not concentrating on the ball and trying to make a play (before) the catch.”

Jeudy said it felt like he “failed my team” on the two drops and will improve on making the catch.

“I felt like I failed my team on those two plays,” Jeudy said. “Me learning from that and just going out there and practicing and really focusing on catching the ball and on the little details of catching the ball is really going to help me. Those two drops (will) probably help me on not dropping passes for the whole season.”

Broncos QB Drew Lock feels he needed to do better at completing his passes downfield in one-on-one situations. 

I definitely missed some deeper shots that I could have connected on,” said Lock. “It just goes back to making the simple plays and to me, a deep shot should be a simple play — it’s a 1-on-1 match-up.”

  • Per ESPN’s Adam Teicher, Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy acknowledged short-yardage running is a point of emphasis for first-round RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire right now: “Clyde’s got to do a better job . . . He knows he left some things out on the field that could have made us better.”
