In his first game for the Denver Broncos, Teddy Bridgewater threw two touchdowns to lead Denver to a 27-15 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.

Before the game, the 28-year-old had some moments of doubt, but he overcame them successfully.

“I was joking with the guys the other day,” Bridgewater said. “Man I don’t think I got it anymore. My moves don’t work anymore. They’re a little outdated.”

Broncos coach Vic Fangio was pleased with his team’s and his quarterback’s overall performance.

“I saw a guy in total control and when he had to improvise, he did,” said Fangio. “Some of those were on big, big plays. He’s been doing that his entire career when he’s been a player. He showed it today.”

On the other hand, it was a bad day for the Giants.

“We didn’t play well on third and fourth downs,” said safety Logan Ryan, who recorded 10 tackles for New York. “That extends drives and bad things happen. We didn’t make their defense play enough defense tonight.”

It was also Saquon Barkley’s first game back from an ACL injury. He had 26 yards on 10 carries.

“It’s disappointing to lose anytime,” Barkley said. “I don’t think it’s any different if we put up 13 points or three points or put up 38 points and lost. Losing a game [stinks].”

The Broncos will face the San Diego Chargers in Los Angeles on September 19, while the Giants will face the Washington Football team in Washington Thursday night.
