For the second time in two home games this year, the Denver Broncos took a shot squarely in the gut.

Josh Lambo drilled a 33-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Jacksonville Jaguars over the Denver Broncos, 26-24, Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High.

Two weeks ago, it was the Chicago Bears who left Denver with a win after making a field goal as time expired.

The Broncos took a 24-23 lead over the Jaguars when Joe Flacco threw an eight-yard touchdown pass to Courtland Suttin with 1:32 left.

But as they had done all second half, the Jaguars drove down the field in impressive fashion, needing only seven plays to go from their 25 yard line to the Broncos' 15.

Lambo did the rest, connecting on his fourth field goal of the game.

The Broncos offense had a productive first half, puting 17 points on the scoreboard. But other than the touchdown drive on the final drive of regulation, the offense could not do much in the second half.

It was much the same way for the defense, which gave up only 35 yards rushing to Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette in the first half.

Fourette gashed the Broncos for 190 yards in the second half and finished with 225 yards on 29 carries.

Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns, two of them to Courtland Sutton. Rookie tight end Noah Fant opened the scoring with the first touchdown of his career, on a 25-yard catch and run in the first quarter.

The Broncos are now 0-4 for the first time since 1999. They play at the Los Angeles Chargers next Sunday, October 6. Coverage will begin at 8 a.m. MDT on KOA 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
