Watch: Broncos finally get a TD at home, cap long drive with Murray plunge
The Denver Broncos broke their streak of no touchdowns in the Mile High City in October with a touchdown from new running back Latavius Murray.
Murray’s two-yard rush capped a nice 13-play 75-yard drive led by backup thrust into the starter role: Brett Rypien. The play of the drive came just before when Rypien hit Jerry Jeudy for 17 yards on third and 10.
Murray’s score is his first as a Bronco.
First TD in the orange & blue for @LataviusM!

Murray was brought in just a few weeks ago when the Broncos lost Javonte Williams for the season with a torn ACL. The Broncos are the fifth different team the veteran running back has scored a touchdown for.
Denver missed the extra point after the touchdown, so the score is 7-6 Jets in the first quarter.
