The 2019 Denver Broncos defense did its best impression of the old Orange Crush.

The Broncos forced three turnovers, recorded seven sacks and kept the Tennessee Titans off the scoreboard in a dominating performance that ended in a 16-0 win on Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High.

The Broncos held the Titans to 204 yards of total offense, only 39 yards on the ground, and held Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota to 7-of-18 passing for 63 yards and two interceptions before Ryan Tannehill replaced him in the second half.

Chris Harris Jr., Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson all picked off passes and the Broncos D sacked Mariota and Tannehill seven times.

The Broncos offense did enough. Phillip Lindsay scored on a two-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, Denver's only TD of the game. THat put the Broncos up 13-0.

Brandon McManus hit field goals from 31, 53 and 48 yards out.
