Heroes and zeros from Broncos’ loss to Las Vegas Raiders: Jerry Jeudy shines, while Sean Payton taps into familiar theme


Here are the heroes and zeros from the Broncos’ 27-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Heroes

Jerry Jeudy: This season was far from pretty for the Broncos wide receiver. But at least he ended it with a good impression. With 10:44 to go in the first, Jeudy scored on a 24-yard touchdown reception, in which he had to break multiple tackles before crossing the goal line. Later in the fourth, Jeudy’s 47-yard reception helped set up a rushing touchdown from running back Javonte Williams.

Jakobi Meyers: If the Raiders wide receiver played Denver every week, he might be the best in the league. Meyers had four total touchdowns in two games against Denver, including a pair in the season finale. In the first quarter, Meyers received a handoff from quarterback Aidan O’Connell, looked to throw before scrambling for a 5-yard touchdown. At the start of the fourth, Meyers caught a 33-yard touchdown pass that saw him waltz into the end zone.

Alex Singleton: Denver’s inside linebacker has been a tackling machine. Singleton recorded 12 total tackles and 174 on the season — the most by a Broncos player since at least 1991, moving past Michael Brooks (170 in 1992). Singleton also finished in the top five in the league in tackles for the second-straight year.
