with kubiak back, the broncos look to right thing against osweiler on monday night football. >> we got to play better. i would say the last -- i told the players today, last two games for us looked a lot alike, unfortunately. slow starting football games. we corrected ourselves defensively, played well in the second half. offensively been struggling. struggling up front, a bunch of penalties. we got to play better. that's the nfl. four weeks we had it don't. >> to get back on track the broncos need to focus on improving in three areas. first offensive line. this was their top priority in the off season. but they have lost their early season momentum. especially in the run game. broncos haven't topped 100 yards rushing since their week two win over indianapolis. they've been held to fewer than
5:49 am
allowed 12 sacks in the last three games. trouble spot number two, while the broncos' defense is ranked number four in total defense, and number one against the past, how they open games have been a concern. they've allowed five of their six opponents to score on their first possession. as a result, their defense has surrendered 31 first drive points. last season just 24 points on their opponent's first positions in 16 games. kubiak said, that's just not what we're about. trouble spot number three is something the broncos will have to deal with until they can make opponents stop. their defense has had trouble defending opposing runningbacks and tight ends in the passing game. opponents have chosen to avoid what many in the league consider to be the best group of cornerbacks we know as the
5:50 am
instead, they've isolated linebackers davis. broncos have returneded 304 passing yards and two touchdowns on throws to backs and tight ends in the last two games. there you have it. if they can clean up those three items they should avoid their first 3-game losing streak since 2011 when tim tebow was quarterback. >> was he pretty upset when he came back? >> he was. someone said it really great, like when kids have then dad comes back and he's ready to take care of business. his voice was hoarse during the interview, and a couple of people asked if he was feeling sick. he said, no, i think i've been doing a lot of hollering this morning. taking care of business. >> oh, boy. parents are out of town and the kids party. but the party is over, people. >> right, parents are back. >> not a bad thing. >> romi, thanks a lot. you can hear more from romi again on thursday on cbs4's morning news here.
