Broncos Vs. Packers Score Update: Willis McGahee's 28-Yard Run Leads To Matt Prater Field Goal, 3-0 Lead

The Denver Broncos took a 3-0 lead against the Green Bay Packers in the first quarter. After punting on their first drive, the Broncos stopped the Packers in the red zone on their own 12-yard line. Running back James Starks was stuffed at the line of scrimmage on a 4th-and-1 play.

On the ensuing drive, the Broncos did put Tim Tebow into the game. He replaced Kyle Orton and ran for a loss of one yard. But, by far, the bigger play came from Willis McGahee when he had a 28-yard rush. It was the longest rushing play by the Broncos so far this season.

The drive reached the nine-yard line and stalled. Matt Prater wound up kicking a 27-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. McGahee has four rushes for 42 yards while Knowshon Moreno has made appearances on third down.
