>> AS WE WELCOME YOU TO DENVER,

A BEAUTIFUL DAY -- 45 DEGREES AT

KICKOFF TIME.

THE JAGUARS AND

COACH TOM COUGHLIN -- HE'S BEEN

CALLED A LOT OF THINGS.

ONE OF THOSE IS A STRICT

DISCIPLINARIAN, AND WHAT'S

BECOME WRONG WITH DISCIPLINE?

>> ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

THERE ARE NO HIDDEN AGENDAS WITH

COACH COUGHLIN.

AND I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING

ABOUT IT.

EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS THEIR

ROLE.

THEY'RE ALL UNDER ONE UMBRELLA.

THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

TOM COUGHLIN HAS A THEME FOR

EVERY WEEK.

THIS WEEK IS THIS -- "WITH

SUCCESS COMES GREATER

CHALLENGES."

AND I'M GONNA TELL YOU SOMETHING

ELSE.

THEY ALL UNDERSTAND WHERE HE'S

AT.

>> THAT'S A 2-TOUCHDOWN

UNDERDOG -- THE CHALLENGE TODAY.

THE GREAT JOHN ELWAY OF THE

DENVER BRONCOS, HIS GREATNESS

PASSBOOK HAS BEEN STAMPED ON

EVERY PAGE BUT SUPER BOWL.

>> THAT'S RIGHT, DICK.

AND IN MY OPINION, JOHN ELWAY

PHYSICALLY IS THE MOST DYNAMIC

QUARTERBACK EVER TO PLAY IN THE

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

HE'S DURABLE. HE'S TOUGH.

HE HAS GREAT ARM STRENGTH.

AND WE TALKED TO HIM YESTERDAY.

HE SAYS, "YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M PLAYING QUARTERBACK NOW

BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE."

HE WAS VERY EXCITED BECAUSE HE

KNOWS THIS DENVER TEAM GIVES HIM

A CHANCE TO GO TO THE SUPER BOWL

AND WIN IT.

>> WELL, TALK IS OVER.

IT'S TIME TO PLAY.

THE WINNER GOES TO THE

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP.

ONLY ONE TIME HAVE THE BRONCOS

STUMBLED IN THE PLAYOFFS HERE

AT HOME, AND THEY MEET A TEAM,

JACKSONVILLE, THAT HAS NOT LOST

A GAME SINCE MID-NOVEMBER.

AND TOM COUGHLIN'S YOUNG TEAM

MATURING RAPIDLY IN ITS SECOND

YEAR.

AND THERE IS THE MAIN REASON,

MARK BRUNELL.

HE HAS STARDOM WRITTEN ALL OVER

HIS TALENT.

AND TO THINK THAT HE WAS ON THE

SAME GREEN BAY TEAM WITH

BRETT FAVRE AND TY DETMER --

THREE MEN ALL QUARTERBACKING

TEAMS INTO THE PLAYOFFS THIS

YEAR.

HERE WE GO IN DENVER!

AND THE SPIRIT IS INDEED

MILE HIGH.

KICK COMES DOWN SHORT TO

RICKY BELL.

FOUGHT THE SUN.

IT'S BUCKY BROOKS, A FORMER

BUFFALO BILL, ACROSS THE 25, TO

THE 27-YARD LINE.

THE JAGUARS SEND OUT

MARK BRUNELL, WHO LED THE LEAGUE

BOTH IN RUSHING AS A QUARTERBACK

AND HAD MORE PASSING YARDS.

AND HERE'S THE MAIN REASON.

THE OFFENSIVE LINE DEVELOPING

INTO A GOOD ONE, AND

TONY BOSELLI A STAR.

HE IS IMPOSING.

COLEMAN, WIDELL, TYLSKI, SEARCY,

WHO WAS IN THE SUPER BOWL WITH

THE STEELERS LAST YEAR.

NATRONE MEANS OFF HIS BEST-EVER

GAME IN BUFFALO.

MASTON IS THE BLOCKER.

SMITH AND McCARDELL ARE THE

WIDE RECEIVERS, BOTH WITH MORE

THAN 80 CATCHES.

DEREK BROWN, THE EX-GIANT, AT

TIGHT END.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

BRUNELL WAS HOARSE THROUGH THE

COURSE OF THIS WEEK, WITH LOUD

NOISE PLAYED IN THE JAGUAR

PRACTICES FOR THIS REASON.

LISTEN TO THE DIN.

MEANS.

LOST A YARD.

FLAGS FLY.

DELAY OF GAME, AS BRUNELL,

TRYING TO CHANGE PLAYS AND

COULDN'T DO IT AGAINST THE NOISE

OF THIS CROWD.

>> NO PLAY.

DELAY ON THE OFFENSE.

5 YARDS -- STILL FIRST DOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

GIVES US A CHANCE TO INTRODUCE

THE DENVER DEFENDERS.

AS JIM POINTED OUT, ALL 11 OF

THESE MEN STARTED THE FIRST GAME

OF THE YEAR.

WILLIAMS, LODISH,

MICHAEL DEAN PERRY, AND

ALFRED WILLIAMS.

WILLIAMS, A CAREER YEAR, GOES TO

THE PRO BOWL WITH MICHAEL DEAN.

JOHN MOBLEY, THE ROOKIE FROM

KUTZTOWN STATE.

ALDRIDGE, ROMANOWSKI, THE FORMER

49er AND EAGLE.

CROCKETT AND WASHINGTON -- LOTS

OF EXPERIENCE AT THE CORNERS.

BRAXTON HAD A SUPER YEAR --

9 INTERCEPTIONS, TIED FOR THE

LEAD LEAGUE.

STEVE ATWATER, A MAN TO WATCH,

27.

HE'LL BE ZEROING IN ON

NATRONE MEANS.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

FIRST AND 15.

INCOMPLETE.

AND RAY CROCKETT ALMOST GOT A

HAND ON IT.

REGGIE BARLOW WAS THE NEAREST

JAGUAR.

>> WELL, WE KNOW WHERE THE

JAGUARS ON OFFENSE FEEL

BRUNELL'S GOT TO HAVE A BIG

GAME.

HE IS REALLY THE FACTOR IN THIS

FOOTBALL GAME.

THE OTHER GUY IS NATRONE MEANS.

IF NATRONE MEANS GETS A HUNDRED

YARDS, THEN JACKSONVILLE

OFFENSIVELY WILL HAVE A CHANCE.

>> WELL, DENVER'S DEFENSE, THEY

KNOW THEY GOT TO STOP

MARK BRUNELL.

AND WHAT THEY GOT TO DO TODAY,

THE DEFENSIVE ENDS --

ALFRED WILLIAMS AND

DAN WILLIAMS -- GO UP THE FIELD,

DON'T GET INSIDE, KEEP

MARK BRUNELL IN THE POCKET,

'CAUSE ONCE HE GETS OUT, YOU'RE

IN TROUBLE.

>> BOTH McCARDELL AND SMITH ARE

TO THE RIGHT.

GIVE IT TO MEANS ON THE DRAW,

AND THE BIG MAN BARRELS HIS WAY

OUT TO THE 34-YARD LINE BEFORE

HE'S HORSE-COLLARED BY

STEVE ATWATER -- A 12-YARD GAIN

BY MEANS, WHO HAS ALWAYS RUN

WELL AGAINST THE BRONCOS.

AS A CHARGER HAD SOME BIG GAMES.

>> THIS WAS AN EXCELLENT CALL.

IT'S A NICE TRAP.

>> WELL, IT'S A GOOD CALL.

IT'S A TRAP INSIDE.

IT'S SECOND AND 15.

SPREAD DENVER'S DEFENSE OUT.

TRAP UP INSIDE NATRONE MEANS.

GOOD JOB GETTING CLOSE.

NOW YOU CAN PICK UP A THIRD

DOWN, THIRD AND SHORT.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> THIRD DOWN AND 3.

SHOTGUN, BRUNELL.

INCOMPLETE.

DEFLECTED AT THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE.

DAN WILLIAMS, IT APPEARED,

NUMBER 90, GOT A PIECE OF IT.

>> WELL, IT'S A GOOD JOB BY THE

DENVER DEFENSE.

THEY SEND 5 PEOPLE AT

MARK BRUNELL, AND WATCH THE

LANES, HOW THEY KEEP ALL OF IT

CLOSED DOWN.

HE THINKS HE MIGHT WANT TO RUN,

THEN HE REALIZES THERE'S NOWHERE

TO GO.

MAKE HIM STAND IN THERE AND

THROW THE FOOTBALL.

>> AND HERE'S A BALL THAT'S JUST

BLOCKED RIGHT AT THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE, AND THERE WAS NO

CHANCE.

>> SHORT KICK, AND ROD SMITH

SAYS, "STAY AWAY FROM IT."

TAKES A BOUNCE OUT OF BOUNDS,

AND DENVER WILL HAVE GOOD

POSITION AT ITS 37-YARD LINE.

AND HERE COMES THE 36-YEAR-OLD

ELWAY, LOOKING FOR HIS FOURTH

TRIP TO A SUPER BOWL.

HIS OFFENSIVE LINE READS THIS

WAY...

ZIMMERMAN GOES TO HIS SEVENTH

PRO BOWL.

SCHLERETH, OFF TWO KNEE

OPERATIONS IN MID-DECEMBER,

STARTS.

NALEN PLAYED FOR COUGHLIN AT

BOSTON COLLEGE.

HABIB AND THOMPSON, THE LINE.

THE BACKFIELD -- TERRELL DAVIS,

NOSED OUT FOR THE RUSHING TITLE

BY BARRY SANDERS.

CRAVER, THE BLOCKER.

MILLER AND McCAFFREY, THE

WIDEOUTS.

SHANNON SHARPE LED ALL TIGHT

ENDS WITH 80 CATCHES THIS YEAR.

DAVIS COMES OUT WAY TO THE LEFT,

BOTTOM OF YOUR PICTURE, WITH

ELWAY IN A SHOTGUN ON FIRST

DOWN.

THIS IS THAT CONCERN OF

COUGHLIN, THE PLAY-CALLING OFF

THE TOP OF THE GAME.

INTENDED FOR SHARPE AND BROKEN

UP BY TOM McMANUS.

DEFENSE FOR THE JAGUARS...

McMANUS IN THE MIDDLE, A MAN OUT

OF WORK TWO YEARS AGO.

JEFF LAGEMAN, DON DAVEY,

JURKOVIC, AND SIMMONS.

SIMMONS WITH THAT BIG

INTERCEPTION IN BUFFALO FOR A

TOUCHDOWN.

KEVIN HARDY, THE TOUTED ROOKIE

FROM ILLINOIS, McMANUS, AND

ROBINSON THE BACKERS.

AARON BEASLEY, A ROOKIE FROM

WEST VIRGINIA, STARTS, WITH

MICKEY WASHINGTON, DANA HALL,

AND CHRIS HUDSON AT SAFETY.

SECOND AND 10 FOR ELWAY, AGAIN

IN THE SHOTGUN.

FLAG DOWN.

ELWAY THROWS.

COMPLETE TO ANTHONY MILLER, WHO

WAS DRILLED BY CHRIS HUDSON.

LET'S SEE IF IT COUNTS.

COULD BE HOLDING IN THE

BACKFIELD AGAINST DENVER.

>> IT IS HOLDING IN THE

BACKFIELD.

>> RED CASHION IS OUR REFEREE,

HIS 25th YEAR IN THE

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

THIS WILL BE HIS LAST GAME, ONE

OF THE MOST POPULAR MEN AROUND

IN A STRIPED JERSEY.

>> HOLDING, NUMBER 75 ON THE

OFFENSE.

10 YARDS -- STILL SECOND DOWN.

>> BRIAN HABIB, NUMBER 75, THE

RIGHT GUARD, HE'S GONNA TRY TO

BLOCK JEFF LAGEMAN COMING

AROUND.

JEFF LAGEMAN, NUMBER 56, HAS

SPEED.

HE TAKES IT INSIDE, AND, AS

TOM COUGHLIN SAID YESTERDAY, "HE

DOESN'T HAVE GREAT STATS, BUT

THIS GUY IS PLAYING GREAT

DEFENSE FOR US RIGHT NOW."

>> LAGEMAN, WHO CAME TO

JACKSONVILLE AS AN UNRESTRICTED

FREE AGENT A YEAR AGO FROM

THE JETS.

SO, ELWAY STARES AT SECOND AND

20.

SCRAMBLES.

HIS HAMSTRING IS BETTER.

OH, IS IT EVER.

DIVES ACROSS THE 45.

HE'S NEAR A FIRST DOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> YOU KNOW WHAT THE THING ABOUT

THIS PLAY IS WHEN ELWAY DIVES,

THOUGH, PHIL?

THEY GIVE HIM THAT LITTLE BIT OF

EXTRA YARDAGE BECAUSE HE DIDN'T

SLIDE.

HE DIVES.

IF HE SLIDES, IT'S WHERE THE

BALL HITS WHEN HE GOES DOWN ON

THE GROUND.

HERE'S ELWAY.

THEY'RE PLAYING MAN COVERAGE

DOWNFIELD.

HE SEES THE OPENING, AND HE

TAKES OFF.

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, DICK.

HIS HAMSTRING IS FINE.

BUT HERE AT THE END, THEY'LL

GIVE HIM THIS LITTLE EXTRA

BECAUSE HE DIVES FORWARD, AND HE

ISN'T TOUCHED UNTIL THERE.

>> ONE OF THE ALL-TIME RUSHERS

AT QUARTERBACK, JOHN ELWAY, OVER

3,000 YARDS, AND MANY FEEL

BRUNELL, IF HE STAYS HEALTHY,

HE'LL BE IN THAT ELITE GROUP.

IT'S THIRD AND LESS THAN A YARD.

TERRELL DAVIS GETS HIS FIRST

CHANCE AND HAS JUST ENOUGH FOR

THE FIRST DOWN TO THE 48-YARD

LINE.

BUT THE SCRAMBLE BY ELWAY THE

KEY AND SO REMINDFUL OF THE

TALENT OF ELWAY IN HIS YOUNGER

YEARS, WHEN HE PLAYED ON LESSER

TEAMS.

>> WELL, DICK, THE THING THEY'RE

DOING, THE BRONCOS, SPREADING

THEIR OFFENSE OUT.

JACKSONVILLE, THEY'RE MAKING

THEM DECLARE -- THEY CAN SEE

RIGHT AWAY, ELWAY CAN -- IS IT

MAN OR ZONE?

THE LAST TIME, HE KNEW IT WAS

MAN COVERAGE BY THE FORMATION.

WHEN HE RUNS, THERE'S NOBODY

LOOKING AT HIM.

>> WELL, THEY'RE GOING TO GO

THROUGH THE FORMALITY OF A

MEASUREMENT.

IT APPEARED THAT TERRELL DAVIS

MADE IT BY PLENTY.

>> WASN'T IT INTERESTING LAST

NIGHT, TOM COUGHLIN, THE COACH

OF THE JAGUARS, SAYING TO US

THAT "WE DON'T EXPECT ELWAY TO

RUN.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO RUN ANYMORE."

AND WE'RE SITTING THERE, 'CAUSE

WE KNEW THAT HIS HAMSTRING,

ELWAY'S, IS PERFECTLY FINE.

HE SAID, "IF I HAVE TO RUN, I'LL

RUN."

BUT TOM COUGHLIN SAID, "I DON'T

THINK HE WILL."

>> WELL, I THINK WHAT HE WAS

REALLY TRYING TO SAY, TOO,

THOUGH, JOHN ELWAY WILL MOVE

AROUND AND LOOK TO THROW IT

FIRST IF HE CAN, BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT HE DOES, PAUL.

HE LOVES TO MOVE AROUND, BUY

THAT EXTRA SECOND AND THEN THROW

IT DOWN THE FIELD.

>> AND THE BRONCOS SHOWING HOW

SUCCESSFUL THEY'VE BEEN ON

OPENING DRIVES.

THAT'S PART OF THAT SCHEME OF

SCRIPTING THE PLAYS

MIKE SHANAHAN BORROWED FROM

SAN FRANCISCO.

COMPLETE TO DWAYNE CARSWELL, THE

TIGHT END.

TOPPLED BY AARON BEASLEY AFTER

AN 8-YARD GAIN.

>> WELL, DICK, WE TALKED ABOUT

IT EARLIER, THE SCRIPTED PLAYS.

THEY HAVE 15 OF THEM.

AND, PAUL, YOU ASKED HIM, "DO

YOU SAVE ANYTHING FOR LATER IN

THE GAME?"

AND HE SAYS, "NO, I GIVE THEM

ALL MY GOOD STUFF EARLY," AND

THIS IS ONE OF THEM, THE

PLAY-ACTION FAKE ONE WAY,

ROLLING OUT.

THE BRONCOS LOVE THIS PLAY.

IT'S CALLED A NAKED BOOTLEG.

JACKSONVILLE SAYS, "WE GOT TO

STOP IT."

FIRST TIME OUT, THEY LET IT GET

BY, THOUGH.

>> CARSWELL, THE MAN WHO CAUGHT

THAT ONE, IS FROM JACKSONVILLE.

THAT'S WHERE HE GREW UP.

SO, HE IS PLEASED TO GET AN

EARLY CALL.

SECOND AND 2.

TERRELL DAVIS.

AND GOOD JOB DEFENSIVELY AGAINST

THE RUN BY JACKSONVILLE.

JIM?

>> WELL, DICK, I SPOKE TO

SHANNON SHARPE BEFORE HE WAS

INTRODUCED.

HE SAID HEAD COACH MIKE SHANAHAN

HAD A BRIEF MESSAGE.

HE SAID, "DON'T PLAY CAUTIOUS.

DON'T PLAY AS THOUGH YOU ARE

GOING TO LOSE THE GAME.

IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE, AND

YOU'RE PLAYING HARD, THAT'S

OKAY.

WE'LL PLAY THROUGH THE MISTAKE.

BUT LET'S PLAY TODAY WITH TOTAL

RECKLESS ABANDON."

DICK?

>> MIKE SHANAHAN IN HIS SECOND

YEAR.

INTERESTINGLY, HE HAS ONE LESS

PLAYOFF GAME AS HEAD COACH THAN

TOM COUGHLIN.

THIS IS HIS FIRST, AND COUGHLIN,

OF COURSE, LAST WEEK WITH THE

WIN AT BUFFALO.

THIRD AND 2.

ACTUALLY LOST ABOUT A HALF YARD

ON THAT LAST CARRY.

ELWAY.

INCOMPLETE.

SHANNON SHARPE.

THE THROW WAS A LITTLE LOW, AND

SHARPE APPEARED TO KICK IT OUT

OF HIS OWN GRASP WITH HIS KNEE.

>> WELL, THEY GOT THE MATCHUP

THEY WANTED.

THEY GOT SHANNON SHARPE ON A

SAFETY, TRAVIS DAVIS,

ONE-ON-ONE, AND HE JUST DROPS

THE FOOTBALL.

>> SHARPE, WHO HAS HIGH

EXPECTATIONS GOING INTO THESE

PLAYOFFS, AS THE PRO BOWL

TIGHT END, AFC.

TOM ROUEN TO PUNT, HIS NET OVER

36.

AND CHRIS HUDSON, WHO PLAYED UP

IN BOULDER AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, BACK AT

THE 10 FOR JACKSONVILLE.

HIGH.

HUDSON STARING.

BEAUTIFUL BOUNCE FOR DENVER AND

WILL BE DOWNED AT ABOUT THE

10-YARD LINE.

>> THERE'S BEEN A CHANGE ALREADY

ON THE OFFENSIVE LINE FOR THE

JAGUARS BECAUSE NUMBER 79, THEIR

CENTER, DAVE WIDELL, HAS A

STRAINED LEFT CALF.

HE CAME OUT OF THE GAME.

SO, HIS BACKUP, NUMBER 63,

MICHAEL CHEEVER, IS IN THE GAME.

BACK TO YOU, DICK.

>> ALL RIGHT, BEASLEY.

FIRST DOWN FOR BRUNELL AND THE

JAGUARS AT THEIR OWN 10.

GIVE IT TO MEANS, AND NATRONE

FOR A YARD AND THAT'S ALL, AS

JOHN MOBLEY LED THE DEFENSIVE

CHARGE.

NATRONE MEANS FROM CONCORD,

NORTH CAROLINA, WAS A

SECOND-ROUND PICK OF THE

CHARGERS.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

FAKE.

BRUNELL ON THE ROLL.

ALFRED WILLIAMS CAN'T GET HIM.

THROWS INCOMPLETE.

THROWS IT AWAY.

SO, WILLIAMS WITH A CHANCE FOR A

SACK, COULDN'T QUITE BRING

BRUNELL DOWN.

>> WELL, ALFRED WILLIAMS,

NUMBER 91, WE GOT A CHANCE TO

TALK TO HIM.

AND HIS JOB TODAY?

MAKE SURE YOU KEEP MARK BRUNELL

IN THAT POCKET.

HE DOES A GOOD JOB.

HE SEES HIM COMING OUT.

HE GETS OUTSIDE, MAKES HIM PULL

UP.

THAT'S IMPORTANT.

NOW HE CAN'T MAKE THE PLAY DOWN

THE FIELD.

IT'S NOT IMPORTANT FOR HIM TODAY

TO GET THE SACKS.

MAKE MARK BRUNELL BEAT YOU FROM

INSIDE.

>> WASN'T IT SOMETHING, BECAUSE

THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK, WHEN

THEY TOLD HIM, "YOU'RE GONNA BE

A CONTAIN MAN," HE SAID, "I WAS

REALLY DISAPPOINTED.

THEN, A COUPLE DAYS LATER, I

REALIZED THIS IS A TEAM SPORT.

I HAVE TO DO WHAT THE DEFENSE

CALLS FOR."

>> BRUNELL LOOKING FOR HIS FIRST

COMPLETION, 0-FOR-3.

SCREENS IT TO MEANS.

FALLS AT THE 14.

AND THE JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

WILL HAVE TO PUNT.

>> THAT TIME HE GOT

ALFRED WILLIAMS IN COVERAGE.

THEY PLAY THAT ZONE-BLITZING

DEAL, WHERE WILLIAMS DROPS OFF.

AND HE WAS THE GUY THAT MAKES

THE TACKLE WHEN MEANS GOES DOWN

ON THE SCREEN.

>> ON TO PUNT, BRYAN BARKER.

HAD A GOOD SEASON, AVERAGING

NEARLY 44.

BUT HIS FIRST PUNT WASN'T MUCH,

ONLY 29.

AND HE LINES THIS ONE.

RETURNABLE.

SMITH HANDLES THE HOP AT THE 45

AND STEPS OUT AT THE DENVER 49,

A 41-YARD KICK, 5 ON THE RETURN.

FIDGETING, BITING HIS NAILS LIKE

ANY FATHER, JOHN ELWAY'S DAD,

JACK ELWAY, A LONGTIME COACH --

WASHINGTON STATE, STANFORD,

CAL STAGE -- NORTHRIDGE.

STILL INVOLVED WITH THE BRONCOS.

SAID HE KNEW HE HAD SOMETHING

SPECIAL IN ELWAY'S JUNIOR YEAR

IN HIGH SCHOOL.

HE SAID, "OH, IS HE GOING TO BE

GOOD."

JACK HIMSELF A TERRIFIC

QUARTERBACK IN HIS WASHINGTON

HIGH SCHOOL DAYS.

ELWAY FIRES COMPLETE TO

TERRELL DAVIS.

IT'LL BE SHORT YARDAGE TO THE

JACKSONVILLE 49.

KEVIN HARDY, THE ROOKIE BACKER

FROM ILLINOIS, MADE THE STOP.

>> DICK, WE WERE WATCHING HIM

BITING HIS NAILS.

HE'S GOT THOSE NAILS UP TO THE

FIRST KNUCKLE.

[ LAUGHS ]

THERE WILL BE NO NAIL -- LOOK.

HE IS JUST NERVOUS.

>> YOU CAN'T ENJOY THE GAME AS A

FATHER RIGHT THERE.

HE'S JUST PLAYING EVERY PLAY.

AND, OF COURSE, BEING AN

EX-COACH JUST MAKES IT WORSE,

TOO, BECAUSE YOU MIGHT

UNDERSTAND TOO MUCH OF WHAT'S

GOING ON.

>> PRETTY GOOD GENES IN THAT

ELWAY FAMILY.

JACK ELWAY, HIS FATHER -- HIS

GRANDDAD, JOHN ELWAY'S -- WAS A

PLAYER BACK IN ALTOONA.

PLAYED AGAINST JIM THORPE.

TOSS TO TERRELL DAVIS.

AND HE MAKES HIS FIRST

STATEMENT!

DAVIS IS CLEAR TO THE 10.

OUT OF BOUNDS INSIDE THE 5!

>> OH, DID HE GET SOME GREAT

BLOCKING DOWNFIELD.

HE SET THIS WHOLE THING UP FOR

THE RECEIVERS TO BE ABLE TO

BLOCK DOWNFIELD.

>> REALLY WHAT MAKES THE PLAY

GO -- WATCH THE OFFENSIVE

LINEMEN OF DENVER.

THEY GET THE BLOCKS.

THEY STAY WITH THEM.

THE DEFENSIVE LINEMEN CANNOT GET

OFF.

THAT ENABLES TERRELL DAVIS TO

GET OUT IN THE OPEN FIELD.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE JACKSONVILLE

PEOPLE TOLD US.

AS A GROUP, DENVER'S OFFENSIVE

LINE IS THE BEST IN THE

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

>> HERE COMES ANTHONY MILLER.

WATCH ANTHONY.

HE JUST STAYS WITH HIS MAN, AND

TERRELL JUST BREAKS IT RIGHT OFF

BEHIND HIM.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BLOCK BY A

RECEIVER.

>> DAVIS NOW GETS THE CALL ON

FIRST AND GOAL.

AND HE HAS NOT QUITE KNOCKED IT

IN, AS THE SIGNAL IS AT THE

ONE-FOOT LINE, AS A VERY

INTERESTED SPECTATOR WATCHES

TERRELL DAVIS GET UP OFF THE

PILE.

KATEREE DAVIS, HIS MOTHER, UP

HERE FROM SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA.

HE WAS A STAR AT

LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL THERE, SAME

SCHOOL THAT PRODUCED

MARCUS ALLEN.

47-YARD RUN BY DAVIS GOT THEM

INSIDE THE 5 AND NOW SECOND AND

GOAL.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> USUALLY A QUARTERBACK SNEAK

OUT OF THIS FORMATION.

>> ELWAY.

PUTS THE BALL -- LURCHES FOR IT

AND DIDN'T QUITE GET THE CALL.

NOT QUITE IN, SAYS THE HEAD

LINESMAN.

IT'LL BE THIRD AND GOAL.

>> WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE FROM UP

HERE THAT JOHN ELWAY GOT THE

FOOTBALL OVER THE GOAL LINE.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT IT.

HE KNOWS HE'S STOPPED WHEN HE

STICKS THE BALL OUT.

IT'S DEFINITELY ACROSS THE LINE.

>> UNLESS THEY RULED THAT HIS

PROGRESS HAD BEEN STOPPED BEFORE

HE LEANED FORWARD.

>> I TELL YOU WHO DID A GREAT

JOB WAS LAGEMAN.

LAGEMAN CAME DOWN AND JUST

NAILED ELWAY, AND THAT'S WHERE

THEY MIGHT HAVE CALLED HE

STOPPED FORWARD PROGRESS.

BUT THE BALL WAS OVER THE GOAL

LINE.

>> CRAVER AND DAVIS NOW LINE UP

BEHIND ELWAY.

TERRELL DAVIS STACKED UP!

HE DOES NOT GET IN!

FROM THE BACK SIDE,

TONY BRACKENS HELPED OUT A

TERRIFIC SURGE BY THAT DEFENSIVE

RIGHT SIDE OF THE LINE AGAIN,

LED BY LAGEMAN.

>> WELL, IT'S A GOOD JOB BY THE

JACKSONVILLE DEFENSIVE LINE

INSIDE.

DON DAVEY AND JOHN JURKOVIC

GET BACK INTO -- THEY BEAT THE

OFFENSIVE LINE TO THE PUNCH.

>> OH, WELL, THAT COULD HAVE

BEEN A VERY COSTLY PLAY, AS

TERRELL DAVIS SLOW GETTING UP.

DAVIS, YOU'LL RECALL, IF YOU

WERE WITH US EARLY IN THE YEAR,

IN THE SAN DIEGO GAME, SUFFERING

MIGRAINE HEADACHES AND THEN

RECOVERED AND THEN HAS GIVEN

THAT TO THE REST OF THE LEAGUE

DEFENSIVELY, WITH OVER

1,500 YARDS RUSHING.

>> BOY, THE LINEBACKERS FILL

BEAUTIFULLY ON THIS PLAY, AND

TERRELL DAVIS IS TRYING TO GET

UP OVER THE TOP.

AND THEN THE LINEBACKERS FILL,

AND THE DEFENSIVE LINE COMING

DOWN.

BUT THE LINEBACKERS ARE THE ONES

THAT FILLED TO STOP THE FORWARD

PROGRESS.

>> IT LOOKS LIKE HE GOT BENT

BACK OVER HIS LEG, AND THAT

CAUSED SOME PAIN.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT HE HURT.

>> SO, BRACKENS FROM THE BACK

SIDE, WITH ALL THE PRESSURE

FORWARD, AS DAVIS, 5 CARRIES

THUS FAR.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

APPEARS TO BE OKAY.

>> BUT BEFORE HE WENT DOWN,

DICK, BEFORE THEY KNEW HE WAS

HURT, THEY JUST SAID -- THERE'S

HIS MOTHER.

>> KATEREE.

>> BUT BEFORE HE WENT DOWN, THEY

JUST SAID, "WE'RE GONNA GO ON

FOURTH DOWN."

AND THEY HAVEN'T CHANGED THEIR

MIND.

>> FOURTH AND GOAL.

IT STARTED AT THE 3.

DAVIS GOT 2 YARDS, AND THEN TWO

SHOTS FROM THE 1 HAVE FAILED FOR

DENVER.

AND NOW FOURTH AND GOAL.

THEY LINE UP WITH VAUGHN HEBRON

AS THE TAILBACK BEHIND CRAVER.

IT'S HEBRON.

TOUCHDOWN!

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

NOT AS BIG OR POWERFUL AS

TERRELL DAVIS, BUT HEBRON, THE

FORMER VIRGINIA TECH STAR, SLAMS

IT IN, AND DENVER HAS THE FIRST

SCORE.

>> YOU KNOW, YOU ALWAYS SAY YOU

PUT POINTS ON THE BOARD WHEN YOU

CAN.

BUT MIKE SHANAHAN IS A LITTLE

BIT DIFFERENT.

HE JUST SAID, "I'M AT HOME.

I'M GOING FOR IT."

>> JASON ELAM FOR THE EXTRA

POINT, AND NO GOOD.

THE FIRST MISS THIS YEAR BY THE

DENVER BRONCOS.

>> WELL, THAT THING NEVER EVEN

CLEARED THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.

>> WATCH GARY ZIMMERMAN, THE

LEFT TACKLE, NUMBER 65, CREATE

THE HOLE FOR THE DENVER

TOUCHDOWN.

DOES A GOOD JOB PUSHING IT DOWN

INSIDE.

ENABLES THE BACK TO GO OUTSIDE

AND SCORE AN EASY TOUCHDOWN.

>> AND JOHN ELWAY'S WIFE, JANET,

ANXIOUSLY WATCHING.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WASN'T SO HAPPY WHEN SHE WATCHED

THE ENSUING PLAY, THE EXTRA

POINT, BLOCKED BY VETERAN

CLYDE SIMMONS, AS HEBRON ENJOYS

A FIRST PLAYOFF SCORE.

AND SIMMONS BLOCKS HIS THIRD

KICK OF THE YEAR AND HIS

ELEVENTH OF HIS LONG AND

ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER.

6-0 AND WE'LL SEE HOW IMPORTANT

THAT IS AS THE GAME UNFOLDS.

BUCKY BROOKS RUNNING INTO HIS

OWN MAN AND TACKLED INSIDE THE

15.

ROD SMITH MADE THE PLAY.

JIM?

>> WELL, DICK, TERRELL DAVIS

TWISTED HIS RIGHT KNEE

ATTEMPTING TO GO OVER THE GOAL

LINE.

THE BRONCOS TRAINING STAFF IS

LOOKING AT HIM RIGHT NOW.

THEY SAY IT'S JUST A TWIST, AND

HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO RETURN THE

NEXT SERIES.

DICK?

>> GOOD NEWS FOR BRONCO FANS, AS

JACKSONVILLE, DOWN 6-0, AND

PREDICTABLY, DENVER TOUGH IN

THIS OPENING QUARTER.

BEST IN THE LEAGUE AT PRODUCING

POINTS IN THE FIRST PERIOD.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

BRUNELL SCRAMBLING AND BROUGHT

DOWN BY DAN WILLIAMS.

WILLIAMS WITH A SACK, A LOSS OF

ABOUT A YARD AT THE 12.

>> MIKE LODISH SETS IT UP.

HE'S A DEFENSIVE TACKLE, 97.

FORCES BRUNELL TO STEP UP, AND

WHEN HE DOES THAT, THEN

DAN WILLIAMS MAKES THE PLAY.

>> MIKE LODISH, NUMBER 97.

WATCH DAN WILLIAMS, NUMBER 90.

STAYS OUTSIDE.

YOU'RE NOT COMING OUT HERE.

WELL, THEN, BRUNELL SCRAMBLES.

HE FALLS OFF OF HIS BLOCK AND

GETS THE SACK.

>> YOU SEE WHERE ALFRED WILLIAMS

WAS AGAIN, PHIL?

WAY TO THE OUTSIDE.

HE'S GOT CONTAIN.

>> BRUNELL SACKED MORE THAN ANY

NFL QUARTERBACK THIS SEASON.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

MEANS.

TO THE 15 AND THAT'S ALL.

>> YOU CAN'T RUN THAT PLAY WITH

MEANS AND MAKE THAT BIG A DELAY,

NOT AS QUICK AS THIS DENVER

DEFENSE IS, PHIL.

IF YOU'RE GONNA RUN

NATRONE MEANS UP THE MIDDLE,

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO RUN HIM ON

A DIRECT HIT, RIGHT NOW.

>> DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR

GREG ROBINSON CALLING THE SHOTS.

IT'S NOW THIRD DOWN AND 9.

>> WELL, IT'S HARD TO RUN THE

BALL SOMETIMES AGAINST THIS

DENVER DEFENSE BECAUSE THEY PUT

SO MANY PEOPLE UP TO THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE, YOU CANNOT BLOCK THEM

ALL.

AND THEY HAVE THE SPEED.

THAT'S WHY THEY MAKE THE EASY

TACKLES.

>> OFFICIALLY THIRD AND 8.

BRUNELL.

COMPLETE TO McCARDELL.

KEENAN McCARDELL TO THE 21, NOT

ENOUGH FOR THE FIRST DOWN.

WRESTLED DOWN BY TORY JAMES, ONE

OF THE TWO YOUNG CORNERBACKS

HERE IN DENVER THAT SHANAHAN'S

VERY HIGH ON -- JAMES AND

DARRIUS JOHNSON.

SO, TOM COUGHLIN WATCHES HIS

TEAM SPUTTER AGAIN, TRAILING

6-0, AND ON COMES PUNTER

BRYAN BARKER.

>> WELL, WE TALK ABOUT DENVER'S

FAST STARTS.

THEIR OFFENSE IS GREAT.

THE TALENT ON THAT SIDE OF THE

BALL IS GREAT.

BUT THIS DEFENSE REALLY SETS IT

UP, TOO.

THEY CONTINUOUSLY KEEP GIVING

THE BALL BACK TO THE EXPLOSIVE

OFFENSE.

>> ROD SMITH, OVER-THE-SHOULDER

CATCH.

ELUDES ONE MAN AT THE 30 AND

THEN IS STORMED AT THE 36-YARD

LINE.

BRIGHT SKIES HERE IN DENVER ON

THIS SATURDAY.

FIRST DOWN AT THE BRONCO 36.

VAUGHN HEBRON BEHIND ELWAY.

GETS THE PITCH.

AND THE SPEEDY, LITTLE TAILBACK

OUT TO THE 40-YARD LINE.

>> ONE THING -- SORRY, DICK.

>> GO AHEAD.

>> ONE THING TOM COUGHLIN TOLD

US YESTERDAY.

HE SAYS, "IF I HAVE TO COMMIT MY

SAFETIES TO COME UP AND STOP THE

RUNNING GAME, WE'RE IN A LOT OF

TROUBLE."

AND ALREADY, AFTER THAT LAST

DRIVE, I CAN SEE THE SAFETIES

FOR JACKSONVILLE UP TO THE LINE

OF SCRIMMAGE, TRYING TO HELP OUT

AGAINST THE RUN.

>> YOU SAW TERRELL DAVIS CHECK

INTO THE BRONCO HUDDLE.

SECOND AND 7.

A BULLET.

COMPLETE TO MILLER AT THE

44-YARD LINE OF THE JAGUARS'.

MICKEY WASHINGTON COVERING.

16 ON THE PLAY.

>> LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.

THE JAGUARS BETTER DO SOMETHING.

THEY HAVE A FULL-SCALE BLITZ

COMING, AND THIS OFFENSIVE

LINE -- WATCH THEM PICK IT UP.

HERE THEY COME, FIVE GUYS ON A

BLITZ.

AND THEY DON'T EVEN GET CLOSE TO

ELWAY.

>> AND JOHN ELWAY HAS SO MANY

WEAPONS TO THROW TO.

ONE-ON-ONE, ANTHONY MILLER WITH

HIS GREAT SPEED.

IT'S HARD TO COVER HIM ACROSS

THE MIDDLE.

>> SHANNON SHARPE SPLITS OFF ON

THE RIGHT SIDE.

McCAFFREY IN THE SLOT AND MILLER

TO THE LEFT.

SHOTGUN.

ELWAY STEPS UP.

THROWS UNDERNEATH, AARON CRAVER.

AND CRAVER TO THE JACKSONVILLE

37.

>> PHIL, WHEN THEY'VE SENT OUT

FIVE GUYS, THEY DON'T HAVE

ENOUGH PEOPLE TO COVER.

CRAVER'S SITTING OUT THERE ALL

BY HIMSELF.

ELWAY LOOKS DOWNFIELD.

HE HAS PLENTY OF TIME.

THERE'S NO ONE OPEN.

"SO, I'LL JUST DUMP IT OFF TO

THE FULLBACK AND PICK UP ABOUT

7."

>> YEAH, YOU KNOW, THE WORST

THING YOU CAN DO IS GET 7.

THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD CHOICE FOR

THE QUARTERBACK.

>> [ Laughing ] YEAH!

>> BUT, AGAIN, THE SCRIPTED

PLAYS.

THE PLAY-CALLING IS AGGRESSIVE

BY THE BRONCOS EARLY IN THE

GAME.

THEY WANT TO COME AT YOU, GET

YOU REELING, THINKING ABOUT

EVERYTHING -- FORMATIONS AND

JUST DIFFERENT PLAYS.

>> SECOND AND 3, AND A TOSS TO

DAVIS.

DAVIS, INSIDE THE 35, TO THE 33,

HAS ANOTHER FIRST DOWN.

PRITCHETT AND ROBINSON THE

TACKLERS.

>> DANA HALL GETS HURT ON THE

PLAY.

HE'S TRYING TO REACH AROUND

ZIMMERMAN AND MAKE THE PLAY, AND

I THINK HE CATCHES HIS ARM ON

TERRELL DAVIS.

ZIMMERMAN REALLY DOESN'T GET A

GOOD BLOCK ON HIM BECAUSE

DANA HALL DOES THE RIGHT THING.

HE CUTS BACK INSIDE ON A TOSS.

BUT HE CATCHES HIS ARM.

>> DANA HALL IS NUMBER 28.

WATCH HIM ON THE OUTSIDE.

HERE HE IS.

REACHES BACK INSIDE.

I CAN'T TELL WHAT HAPPENED.

>> NO, THE ONLY THING YOU CAN

SEE IS THAT HIS ARM GETS CAUGHT

ON TERRELL DAVIS, AND THAT'LL

PULL IT RIGHT OUT OF JOINT.

>> ONE OF SEVEN JAGUARS THAT

STARTED THE SEASON TO PLAY IN A

SUPER BOWL, DANA HALL, OF

COURSE, WITH THE 49ers ON THAT

'94 TEAM.

>> OH, HE CATCHES HIM WITH A

RIGHT HOOK RIGHT IN THE HEAD

WITH HIS HAND.

HE'S UP.

YEAH, HE SAID, "I'M ALL RIGHT.

I DON'T LIKE THE WAY YOU SMACKED

ME IN THE MOUTH."

>> HE WAS A TEAMMATE OF

MARK BRUNELL'S AND

BILLY JOE HOBERT AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON IN

THEIR ROSE BOWL GLORY YEARS OF

THE EARLY '90s

AND DRAFTED VERY HIGH BY THE

49ers.

WAS THE NUMBER-ONE PICK.

>> AND WITH THAT PLAY, THE

BRONCOS ARE IN A FIRST-DOWN

SITUATION AGAIN.

>> THAT WAS THEIR 15th PLAY, AND

THAT'S HOW MANY THEY SCRIPT

NORMALLY.

>> WELL, NOW HE DOESN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO NOW.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> IT'S UP TO ELWAY.

THAT'S NOT ALL BAD.

LEADING 6-0 HERE IN THE FIRST

QUARTER.

2:00 REMAIN.

COMPLETE TO McCAFFREY AT THE 19.

TACKLED BY BEASLEY.

13 MORE FOR DENVER.

>> YOU DON'T REALLY REALIZE HOW

GREAT A CATCH THIS IS BY

McCAFFREY BECAUSE HE'S LOOKING

DIRECTLY INTO THE SUN.

>> THAT'S A GOOD POINT, BUT

HARDY, NUMBER 51, COMING FROM

THE OUTSIDE.

SO, YOU GOT MAN COVERAGE AGAIN

BY THE JACKSONVILLE DEFENSE, AND

HE GETS AROUND TERRELL DAVIS.

BUT IT SHOWS YOU, JACKSONVILLE,

THEY'RE GONNA COME AFTER ELWAY.

THEY GOT TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN,

'CAUSE IF YOU SIT BACK, THEY

CANNOT STOP DENVER'S OFFENSE.

>> NOW, PART OF THE SCRIPT WAS

TO GET EVERYONE INVOLVED --

5 COMPLETIONS, 5 DIFFERENT

RECEIVERS FOR ELWAY.

FIRST DOWN AT THE 19.

6-0, DENVER, AND IT'S

TERRELL DAVIS BURROWING FOR A

COUPLE.

KELVIN PRITCHETT, THE FORMER

DETROIT LION, LEADING THE WAY,

NUMBER 94.

>> ONE OF THE GOOD THINGS, WHEN

THE BRONCOS WENT DOWN, FOR

JACKSONVILLE WAS THAT THEY

SCORED A TOUCHDOWN, YEAH, AND IT

TOOK THEM FOUR DOWNS TO GET IT

IN THERE.

THEN THEY MISSED THE EXTRA

POINT.

THE ONLY PROBLEM IS,

JACKSONVILLE'S HAD THE BALL

THREE DIFFERENT TIMES.

THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE A FIRST

DOWN OR EVEN CLOSE TO A FIRST

DOWN.

>> CHANGE AT TIGHT END FOR

DENVER AS NUMBER 86,

BYRON CHAMBERLAIN, COMES IN.

THEY FEEL HE'S GONNA BE A VERY

GOOD PLAYER.

CAME ON IN THE LAST COUPLE OF

GAMES.

DANA HALL HAS RETURNED FOR

JACKSONVILLE.

SECOND AND 9.

ELWAY.

GUNS.

TOUCHDOWN, SHANNON SHARPE!

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> THEY WILL GO FOR 2 HERE.

I THINK I'LL JUST CALL ELWAY

"ROCKET MAN."

[ LAUGHS ]

THAT BALL WAS A ROCKET.

THE DEFENSIVE SECONDARY HAD NO

CHANCE, PHIL.

>> WELL, WE ALWAYS SAY, PAUL,

YOU CAN'T STOP A PERFECT THROW.

THAT WAS A PERFECT THROW.

>> WELL, WE MENTIONED THAT HE'S

SPREADING IT AROUND.

THAT WAS HIS SIXTH COMPLETION,

HIS SIXTH DIFFERENT RECEIVER,

AND SHANNON SHARPE HAS THE

TOUCHDOWN.

HE HAD 10 DURING THE REGULAR

SEASON.

AND NOW BECAUSE OF THE BLOCKED

EXTRA POINT ON THEIR FIRST

SCORE, THEY'LL GO FOR 2.

FROM THE SHOTGUN WITH CRAVER AND

DAVIS BOOKENDING ELWAY AND

SENDING CRAVER IN MOTION.

INCOMPLETE.

SHARPE WAS OPEN.

HANDCUFFED BY THE THROW, IT

APPEARED.

SO, 12-0 THE SCORE HERE IN

DENVER.

>> JOHN IS UPSET.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT'S WITH

HIMSELF OR WITH SHARPE, BUT HE'S

UPSET.

>> WELL, I THINK HE'S UPSET WITH

HIMSELF.

HE THREW IT A LITTLE BEHIND

SHANNON SHARPE.

BUT LOOKING AT THE TOUCHDOWN,

DENVER SPREADS THE FIELD.

WATCH SHANNON SHARPE.

HE COMES IN MOTION.

THEY LEAVE THE MIDDLE OF THE

FIELD OPEN.

DENVER THOUGHT THEY COULD TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF DEEP, DOWN THE

MIDDLE OF THE FIELD.

AND LOOK AT SHANNON SHARPE --

THE SPEED FOR A TIGHT END.

PEOPLE LOOK AT HIM.

THEY SAY, "TIGHT END," BUT THEY

JUST DON'T REALIZE HOW FAST HE

CAN GET DOWN THERE AND MAKE

THINGS HAPPEN.

>> WELL, THEY GOT A LINEBACKER

THAT TRIES TO HELP OUT ON HIM,

HARDY RIGHT THERE.

HE'S GOT HIM SHORT.

AND THEN LONG NEVER GETS THERE.

SO, THE SAFETY DOESN'T GET OVER

TO HELP OUT, AND IT'S A

TOUCHDOWN.

BUT IT'S A PERFECT THROW, AND

YOU'RE RIGHT.

HOW DO YOU DEFEAT THE PERFECT

THROW?

>> SO, ELWAY TAKES HIS TEAM

64 YARDS IN 7 PLAYS, AND

SHANNON SHARPE, 18 YARDS ON THE

TOUCHDOWN.

ELWAY WAS 4-FOR-4 ON THE DRIVE.

>> THAT WAS AN INTERESTING

GRAPHIC YOU HAD AT THE BEGINNING

OF THE SHOW, PHIL, THAT THEY'RE

THE NUMBER-ONE TEAM IN THE

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE IN THE

FIRST QUARTER IN SCORING.

>> PAUL, WE'VE HEARD IT BEFORE.

EVERYBODY COMES IN HERE AND

PLAYS THE BRONCOS, THEY SAY THE

SAME THING.

IT'S LIKE THE 49ers USED TO BE

YEARS AGO.

"WE GOT TO STOP THEM EARLY

BECAUSE THEY GET OFF TO SUCH A

GREAT START.

AND IF WE CAN, WE CAN PLAY WITH

THEM."

WELL, IT'S A GREAT THEORY.

THEY JUST CAN'T MAKE IT WORK.

YOU CAN'T STOP THEM EARLY IN A

FOOTBALL GAME.

>> SO, JACKSONVILLE IS GOING TO

HAVE TO MUSTER SOME OFFENSE.

AS PAUL POINTED OUT, THREE

POSSESSIONS, THREE-AND-OUT, AND

THEY HAVEN'T HELD THE BALL FOR

MORE THAN 1:57 ON ALL THREE

POSSESSIONS.

BUCKY BROOKS AT THE GOAL LINE.

BROOKS ONLY TO THE 20, MAYBE THE

21-YARD LINE.

RANDY HILLIARD IN ON THE TACKLE

AS BRUNELL TAKES THE FIELD FOR

THE FOURTH TIME.

>> LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT

SHANNON SHARPE ON THE 2-POINT

CONVERSION.

DOES A GOOD JOB.

FAKES OUTSIDE AND LOOK AT THAT

OPENING.

THE BALL, IT'S REALLY A GOOD

THROW.

SHANNON SHARPE, YOU'RE AN

ALL-PRO.

YOU GOT TO MAKE THOSE TOUGH

CATCHES.

AND ELWAY, HEY, HE WANTS IT ALL.

>> HE DOES.

>> HE WAS EXCITED THIS WEEK

DURING PRACTICE, MEETING WITH

US, AND YOU COULD TELL ALL OF IT

WAS WORTH IT BECAUSE HE

PREPARED WELL, AND HE'S GOT OFF

TO A GOOD START TODAY.

>> JUST 23 SECONDS LEFT IN THIS

OPENING QUARTER.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

BRUNELL.

ALMOST PICKED OFF BY

ALLEN ALDRIDGE, THE MIDDLE

LINEBACKER.

IT WAS INTENDED FOR

KEENAN McCARDELL.

>> BOY, I'LL TELL YOU.

ALLEN ALDRIDGE -- YOU TALK ABOUT

READING A QUARTERBACK'S EYES,

DICK, AND GETTING INTO THE PLAY.

ALL HE DID WAS JUST SIT THERE.

READ BRUNELL.

LOOK AT HIM.

YOU SEE 57?

HE'S LOOKING AT THE

QUARTERBACK'S EYES.

GETS HIMSELF IN A PERFECT

POSITION.

>> WE SAY IT ALL THE TIME, BUT

THAT'S ANOTHER GOOD EXAMPLE.

DENVER, THE CHANGE IN THE TEAM.

SPEED.

LAST YEAR THEY WOULD NOT HAVE

GOTTEN THERE TO BREAK THAT PASS

UP.

YOU SEE IT EVERY GAME WITH THIS

TEAM.

>> ALL THREE LINEBACKERS RUN THE

40 IN 4.6 OR BETTER.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

THREE TIGHT ENDS THIS TIME.

A LOAD TO THE RIGHT, AND THEN

THEY GIVE IT TO MEANS, BUT MEANS

TRIPPED UP AS HE GETS TO THE

25-YARD LINE ON THE FINAL PLAY

OF THIS OPENING QUARTER.

IT'LL BE JACKSONVILLE, THIRD

DOWN AND ABOUT 6 WHEN WE GO TO

THE SECOND.

SO, THIS OPENING 15 MINUTES HAS

BEEN ALL ON THE SIDE OF THE

DENVER BRONCOS.

WE'RE BACK IN DENVER.

A FEW JAGUAR FANS WITH CHERRY

SEAT LOCATIONS.

>> YEAH.

YEAH, LOOK WHERE THESE PEOPLE

ARE.

THEY'RE UP IN THE CORNER OF THE

END ZONE, DIRECTLY INTO THE SUN.

THEY HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN THE FIRST

QUARTER YET.

>> HEY, THEY'RE THE ENEMY.

>> [ LAUGHS ]

>> YOU KNOW, THE ENEMY -- WHY

TREAT THEM GOOD?

LET THEM KNOW.

"THIS IS OUR PLACE.

WE'RE GONNA GIVE YOU THE WORST

SEATS IN THE HOUSE."

>> YEAH, I GUESS YOU'RE RIGHT.

>> HEY, THEY'RE HAPPY TO BE

HERE.

>> JIMMY SMITH IS THE TOP

THIRD-DOWN RECEIVER IN THE

LEAGUE THIS YEAR, 25 FIRST

DOWNS.

HE HAD A TOTAL OF 83 CATCHES.

FROM JACKSON STATE.

WHEN THEY LET ANDRE RISON GO, HE

REALLY, AS TOM COUGHLIN SAID,

WAS TORRID.

THIRD AND 6.

AND IT IS TO SMITH.

HE STEPS OUT OF BOUNDS WITH A

FIRST DOWN.

>> HOW NICE OF YOU TO SET THAT

UP FOR THEM, DICKY.

>> [ LAUGHS ]

WELL, THE ONE THING JIMMY SMITH

HAS -- SPEED INSIDE.

YOU CAN SEE HIM ON THE OUTSIDE.

AND LOOK AT THE RESPECT HE GETS.

GOOD JOB OF SELLING THE ROUTE UP

THE FIELD.

MAKES RAY CROCKETT TURN.

THAT MAKES IT AN EASY THROW FOR

MARK BRUNELL.

>> 11 YARDS AND THE FIRST

FIRST DOWN FOR THE JAGUARS,

TRAILING 12-0 AS WE START THIS

SECOND QUARTER.

TOMMY ROY, OUR PRODUCER,

JOHN GONZALES, OUR DIRECTOR,

FROM DENVER, AS NATRONE MEANS

SEES A HOLE, RUNNING THROUGH

TACKLES TO THE DENVER 46-YARD

LINE.

AND THAT'LL GET THE BEAT PULSING

A BIT HIGHER IN JACKSONVILLE.

>> WHAT A GREAT BLOCK AT THE

LINE OF SCRIMMAGE BY BROWN AND

BOSELLI, THE TACKLE AND THE

TIGHT END.

RIGHT HERE, WATCH THIS ON

ALFRED WILLIAMS.

THEY JUST TAKE HIM AND KICK HIM

TO THE OUTSIDE, SEAL IT OFF.

NATRONE MEANS GOES INSIDE.

THAT'S A HOLE, FOLKS.

>> 18-YARD PRODUCTION FOR MEANS,

ONLY 5'10" AND 240 POUNDS.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

FIRST TIME JACKSONVILLE IN

DENVER TERRITORY.

BRUNELL.

SECONDARY RECEIVER IS THE TIGHT

END, PETE MITCHELL, AND MITCHELL

IS TO THE 39.

ALLEN ALDRIDGE THE TACKLER,

ALONG WITH JOHN MOBLEY.

>> GOOD JOB BY THE JACKSONVILLE

OFFENSIVE LINE.

WATCH TONY BOSELLI ON THE

OUTSIDE.

DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB LAST

WEEK AGAINST BRUCE SMITH.

>> ALFRED WILLIAMS' ROLE TODAY

IS TO GET UPFIELD TO THE

OUTSIDE.

>> THEY GIVE TO MEANS, AND MEANS

FIGHTS HIS WAY TO THE 35-YARD

LINE, WHERE IT'LL BE ANOTHER

FIRST DOWN FOR THE JAGUARS.

AND BOSELLI, ALONG WITH ALL OF

HIS TALENTS, AND COUGHLIN RAVING

ABOUT HIS WORKOUT AND THE GREAT

FEET HE HAS, ALONG WITH THOSE

HANDS, ONLY ALLOWED 3 SACKS THIS

YEAR.

CHAD BROWN GOT HIM FOR ONE, BUT

HE SHUT OUT SOME PRETTY GOOD

PLAYERS -- BROCK, O'NEAL,

JOHNSON, PLEASANT.

MICHAEL McCRARY ALSO.

CHAD BROWN HAD A COUPLE.

ONLY 3 SACKS ALLOWED ALL YEAR AS

JAMES STEWART GIVES

NATRONE MEANS A BREATHER AND ON

FIRST DOWN TAKES IT TO THE

30-YARD LINE.

BOSELLI, FROM SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA, THE SECOND PLAYER

PICKED A YEAR AGO AND THE

HIGHEST LINEMAN PICKED SINCE

TONY MANDARICH BY GREEN BAY.

17 GAMES PLAYED, ONLY 3 SACKS

ALLOWED -- HOW GOOD IS THAT,

PHIL SIMMS?

>> WELL, THAT'S BETTER THAN

GOOD.

THAT'S REAL GOOD.

BUT THE IMPORTANT THING IS, TOO,

WHY IT'S SO GOOD, DICK -- HE'S

BLOCKING FOR A RUNNING

QUARTERBACK, WHICH USUALLY

DRIVES THE SACK STATS UP AGAINST

THESE OFFENSIVE LINEMEN.

>> 47 OTHER SACKS WENT TO

TEAMMATES, BUT ONLY 3 CHARGED TO

BOSELLI.

THROW AND A GOOD CATCH BY

PETE MITCHELL, THE TIGHT END

FROM BOSTON COLLEGE.

BUT HE DOESN'T GET ANYTHING OUT

OF IT -- ONLY A YARD TO THE 29.

WELL-COVERED BY TYRONE BRAXTON.

>> THERE'S A GUY -- LET'S JUST

MENTION ONE MORE TIME.

WE DID IT A FEW WEEKS AGO.

TYRONE BRAXTON -- THERE'S JUST

NO REASON WHY THIS MAN IS NOT IN

THE PRO BOWL.

IT'S A SHAME.

HE TIED THE

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE WITH

9 INTERCEPTIONS AND LOOK WHAT

TYRONE BRAXTON HERE.

HERE'S A CATCH OF THE TIGHT END

MITCHELL, AND WATCH WHAT HE GETS

AFTER IT.

ONE YARD.

TYRONE BRAXTON.

>> AND AT 185, TO CALL HIM A

STRONG SAFETY IS A MISNOMER.

HE LAUGHS ABOUT IT.

STEVE ATWATER IS 217.

HE'S THE FREE SAFETY.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

ON THIRD AND 4.

BRUNELL PROTECTED WELL.

GUNS IT.

INCOMPLETE TO MITCHELL.

RIGHT THROUGH HIS HANDS, AND HE

MAY HAVE BEEN LOOKING RIGHT INTO

THE SUN.

>> I THINK HE WAS, 'CAUSE

PETE MITCHELL, HE DOES NOT DROP

MANY PASSES, AND THAT'S WHY HE'S

IN THERE, FOR HIS PASS-CATCHING

ABILITY.

AND WHEN HE TURNS, AND HE LOOKS

FOR THIS FOOTBALL, IT IS RIGHT

IN THE SUN.

AND MARK BRUNELL PUTS IT RIGHT

ON THE MONEY.

>> YEAH, HE LOOKED AS IF HE WAS

FISHING FOR THAT ONE.

SO, MIKE HOLLIS COMES ON.

THIS WILL BE A LONG FIELD-GOAL

TRY FOR JACKSONVILLE, FROM THE

36, A 46-YARD ATTEMPT.

YOU SEE HE HAD A 53-YARDER

EARLIER THIS YEAR.

MISSED ONLY 6 TIMES.

YOUNG GUNNER FROM IDAHO GETS A

GOOD BOOT INTO THIS ONE.

IT IS GOOD!

WELL INTO THE SCREEN, AND

JACKSONVILLE ON THE BOARD.

EARLIER TODAY, GREEN BAY

DEFEATED SAN FRANCISCO, 35-14.

DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM UP IN

WISCONSIN, LOOKING INTO THE SUN.

RAINED THROUGHOUT THAT ONE, AND

THAT WAS THE ANGLE FROM WHICH

MITCHELL TRIED TO CATCH THE BALL

FROM BRUNELL.

VAUGHN HEBRON AT THE 6.

25, 30, AND TO THE 32 GOES

HEBRON.

DENVER, EARLY HERE IN THE SECOND

QUARTER.

JOHN ELWAY, PERFECT ON THE LAST

DENVER DRIVE EXCEPT FOR THE

2-POINT TRY.

UNDERNEATH IT GOES TO CARSWELL,

THE TIGHT END, ACROSS THE 40.

FUMBLED THE BALL!

AND THE SCRAMBLE AND WELL, THEY

SAY DENVER WAS DOWN BY CONTACT.

McMANUS AND HARDY REACHING FOR

THE FOOTBALL.

>> YOU HAVE THE DEFENSIVE END,

CLYDE SIMMONS, OVER THE

TIGHT END, PHIL.

HE'S REALLY IN A CATCH-22.

THERE'S NOTHING HE COULD DO

EXCEPT LET THE TIGHT END GO, AND

IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE THE

LINEBACKER THAT'S PICKING IT UP.

NOW, THE BALL IS LOOSE, BUT HE

ENDS UP -- NOBODY'S GOING FOR

THE BALL.

THEY DON'T SEE IT BECAUSE IT'S

UNDERNEATH HIM.

HE GETS IT BACK.

>> OH, THAT WAS QUICK THINKING

BY CARSWELL AND FORTUNATE THE

BALL WAS THERE WITHIN HIS REACH.

FIRST DOWN ON THE PLAY.

TERRELL DAVIS PUSHED BACK INTO

THE BACKFIELD, AND A FLAG DOWN

AS THEY FLY FROM ALL DIRECTIONS,

TWO BACK IN THE BACKFIELD AND

ONE FROM DEEP DOWNFIELD, THROWN

BY THE BACK JUDGE.

>> CARSWELL, NUMBER 89,

TIGHT END, HOLDING.

>> YOU KNOW, WE DON'T MAKE THE

POINT OFTEN ENOUGH THAT WHEN

THERE IS THAT HOLDING CALL, IT'S

OFTEN BECAUSE THE OTHER PLAYER

MADE SUCH A GOOD PLAY, YOU HAD

TO HOLD HIM TO STOP HIM.

>> HOLDING DURING THE RUN.

>> YOU GOT CLYDE SIMMONS, WHO'S

COMING UPFIELD.

>> 10 YARDS, STILL FIRST DOWN.

>> AGAIN, YOU HAVE CLYDE SIMMONS

COMING UPFIELD, DICK, AND HE'S

GONNA GET TO THE RUNNER.

AND WHAT THE TIGHT END IS DOING

RIGHT HERE IS JUST TRYING TO

SAVE THE RUNNER.

WATCH THIS.

YOU SEE CLYDE SIMMONS.

HE CONTROLS THE TIGHT END,

CARSWELL.

NOW HE'S GETTING READY TO THROW,

AND HE CAN'T THROW HIM BECAUSE

CARSWELL'S GOT HIM BY THE WAIST.

>> SO, THE PENALTY TAKES IT BACK

TO THE 32-YARD LINE, AND ELWAY

DROPS BACK INTO THE SHOTGUN.

THEY COME WITH FOUR.

ELWAY DUMPS IT TO DAVIS.

DAVIS TO THE 35, AND THAT'S ALL,

AS THREE JAGUARS, LED BY

EDDIE ROBINSON, THERE TO BRING

HIM DOWN.

>> PHIL, YOU KNOW, WE TALKED TO

JACKSONVILLE ABOUT THIS

OFFENSIVE LINE OF DENVER'S.

NOW, THEY'RE OLDER GUYS, AND

THEY'RE NOT GONNA LIKE ME SAYING

THAT.

THEY ONLY HAVE ONE GUY IN THE

20s.

THAT'S THE CENTER.

BUT THEY MIX SO WELL TOGETHER.

THEY ARE JUST LIKE -- WHAT DID

THEY SAY?

THEY'RE LIKE A PUZZLE, AND THEY

JUST FIT PERFECTLY, ALL FIVE OF

THEM.

>> WELL, THAT'S THE KEY, AND

YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE ALEX GIBBS,

THE OFFENSIVE LINE COACH.

HE BRINGS THEM TOGETHER.

HE WANTS THEM TO KNOW, "IT'S

IMPORTANT WE DO WELL AS A

GROUP."

AND THEY DO THAT.

>> SECOND AND 17, DIRECT SNAP TO

DAVIS.

HE BREAKS A TACKLE AT THE LINE

OF SCRIMMAGE.

NOW HE HAS 5, 10, 13, 14.

MICKEY WASHINGTON FINALLY

BROUGHT HIM DOWN.

THEY HAD DAVIS STOPPED RIGHT AT

THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.

>> TONY BRACKENS, I THINK,

NUMBER 90, WAS THE GUY THAT HAD

HIM STOPPED, AND HE DOESN'T HOLD

ON.

BRACKENS IS AT THE END OF THE

LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.

AND I THINK THIS IS HIM.

HE COMES INSIDE, BAM, AND HE

HITS HIM.

BUT TERRELL DAVIS JUST BOUNCES

BACK OUTSIDE.

WHAT A GREAT RUN.

>> BRACKENS, NUMBER 90, NOBODY

BLOCKING HIM.

DOES A GOOD JOB.

DIAGNOSES THE PLAY.

COMES INSIDE.

BUT YOU SEE TERRELL DAVIS'

STRENGTH AND THEN THE SPEED TO

GET OUTSIDE AND MAKE IT A

POSITIVE PLAY.

>> SO, INSTEAD OF THIRD AND 17,

IT'S THIRD AND 2.

ELWAY WITH THAT HARD COUNT.

THROWS. INCOMPLETE.

ANTHONY MILLER AND TRAVIS DAVIS.

DAVIS ABLE TO KNOCK IT AWAY, AND

THE PUNTING TEAM ON FOR DENVER.

>> TRAVIS DAVIS.

JOHN ELWAY GETS AWAY WITH ONE

THAT TIME.

HE IS FREE.

HE'S CALLED THE ROVER.

HE'S UP IN THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE.

ALL HE'S GONNA DO IS JUST DROP

BACK IN THE MIDDLE AND LOOK FOR

ANY CROSSING ROUTES.

ELWAY DOES NOT SEE HIM.

TRAVIS DAVIS JUST A LITTLE BIT

LATE BREAKING ON THE FOOTBALL.

SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN

INTERCEPTION.

>> ON COMES TOM ROUEN, WITH

CHRIS HUDSON PERCHED AT THE 10.

BEAUTIFUL, HIGH SPIRAL.

LANDS IN THE END ZONE.

TOUCHBACK FOR THE JAGUARS.

AND NOW MARK BRUNELL.

HE AND BILLY JOE HOBERT SHARING

GREAT YEARS AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON.

AS A KID, HE WAS A BETTER

PITCHER, A LEFT-HANDED PITCHER,

COACHED BY HIS DAD IN

SANTA MARIA, CALIFORNIA.

STARTS AT THE 20.

PLAY-ACTION.

ALFRED WILLIAMS CAN'T GET HIM.

THIS IS WHAT MAKES HIM SO TOUGH,

A LA STEVE YOUNG, BUT HE HAS TO

TAKE THE LOSS BACK AT THE

17-YARD LINE.

>> WELL, ALFRED WILLIAMS TOLD US

YESTERDAY, "I CANNOT LET

MARK BRUNELL GET OUTSIDE."

HE DOES A GOOD JOB.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.

AGAIN, FIRST TIME YOU SEE IT, HE

GOES, "OH, THIS GUY'S A LITTLE

QUICKER AND FASTER THAN I EVEN

ANTICIPATED."

AND MARK BRUNELL -- BUT THE GOOD

THING IS, EVERYBODY COVERED

DOWN THE FIELD.

DIDN'T GIVE UP A BIG PLAY.

>> THE ONE THING ALFRED JUST

LEARNED ON THAT PLAY THERE --

"IF I'M GONNA BE OUTSIDE ON

BRUNELL, WHAT I HAVE TO DO IS

ONCE I GET BY BOSELLI, I'VE GOT

TO GET MYSELF UNDER CONTROL.

OTHERWISE, I'M NOT GONNA GET A

HAND ON THIS GUY."

>> THAT WAS RULED A SACK.

IT WOULD GO TO ALDRIDGE, WHO WAS

THE CLOSEST MAN TO THE PLAY.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

SECOND AND 14.

TIME-OUT, BRUNELL.

JAMES "JUMPY" GEATHERS, 79,

COMES INTO THAT DEFENSIVE LINE

FOR THE BRONCOS.

5 SACKS THIS YEAR, AND HE'S GOT

THAT INCREDIBLE FORKLIFT MOVE.

HE'S SO STRONG.

SECOND AND 14.

THROW IN THE FLAT.

AND JACKSON, WILL JACKSON,

TACKLED AFTER A YARD, 2-YARD

GAIN, BY RAY CROCKETT.

>> WHAT A GREAT JOB BY

RAY CROCKETT BECAUSE WHAT HE

DOES IS HE FORGETS ALL ABOUT.

GOES RIGHT BY THE BLOCKER ON THE

OUTSIDE -- NOT EVEN CONCERNED

WITH HIM.

"MY JOB IS TO GET TO THE GUY

THAT'S CATCHING THE BALL."

AND RAY CROCKETT MAKES A GREAT

PLAY.

>> GONNA GIVE HIM A GOOD SPOT,

OUT TO THE 20, WHERE IT'LL BE

THIRD AND 10.

HERE IT IS.

JACKSON, WHOSE BROTHER,

TERRY JACKSON, ON THE

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, A

NATIONAL CHAMPION.

SCORED A TOUCHDOWN A COUPLE

NIGHTS AGO.

HIS DAD, WILLIE JACKSON SR., WAS

THE FIRST-EVER BLACK TO PLAY AT

THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.

BRUNELL UNDER HEAVY TROUBLE.

IT'S INTERCEPTED!

TORY JAMES AT THE 25, THE 20,

AND IT'S WHISTLED DEAD, AS A

FLAG GOES DOWN.

AND JAMES MAY HAVE BEEN GUILTY

OF A FOUL IN ORDER TO PICK OFF

THAT BALL, AS WILLIAMS AND

CADREZ WERE PRESSURING BRUNELL.

>> THEY'RE GONNA CALL PASS

INTERFERENCE ON THE PLAY.

[ CROWD BOOS ]

REMEMBER ONE THING.

YOU GOT TORY JAMES THERE.

REMEMBER ONE THING.

WHEN THAT BALL IS THROWN, BOTH

GUYS HAVE A RIGHT TO THE BALL.

NOW, THE QUESTION IS, YOU CAN'T

IMPEDE THE OFFENSIVE GUY'S

RIGHT.

>> PASS INTERFERENCE,

NUMBER 20 ON THE DEFENSE.

FIRST DOWN!

>> [ CHUCKLES ]

[ As Cashion ] FIRST DOWN!

[ Normal voice ] ALL RIGHT, RED.

HERE IT IS. WATCH THIS.

THERE'S THE BUMPING THERE.

THEY'RE NOT CALLING IT HERE.

HERE'S WHERE THEY'RE GONNA CALL

IT.

WATCH JAMES.

HE GOES THROUGH.

HE HITS HIM WITH HIS ARM AND

BOUNCES HIM OFF THE BALL.

YOU DON'T LIKE THE CALL.

>> IT'S A TERRIBLE CALL.

YOU'RE PENALIZING THE

DEFENSIVE BACK FOR BEING THE

AGGRESSOR AND GETTING TO THE

FOOTBALL BEFORE THE

WIDE RECEIVER DID.

>> A BREAK FOR THE JAGUARS, IT

WOULD APPEAR.

FIRST DOWN AT THE 25.

MEANS.

ONLY 2 ON THE PLAY.

ALDRIDGE AND MOBLEY THERE TO

MAKE THE STOP.

>> JUST GOING BACK TO THE PASS

INTERFERENCE REAL QUICK -- IT

WOULD ONLY BE A PENALTY IF HE

STOPPED THE WIDE RECEIVER FROM

GETTING TO THE BALL.

HE DIDN'T IMPEDE THE PROGRESS

OF THE WIDE RECEIVER.

HE JUST REACTED BETTER TO THE

FOOTBALL WHEN IT WAS THROWN.

>> SECOND DOWN --

>> LIKE I SAID AT THE BEGINNING.

BOTH GUYS HAVE THE RIGHT TO GET

TO IT.

SORRY, DICK.

>> MEANS, THE LONE RUNNING BACK.

McCARDELL -- SAYS IT'S NOT

McCARDELL, BUT McCAR-DELL -- TO

THE LEFT.

SMITH TO THE RIGHT.

TIGHT END MITCHELL IN MOTION.

HERE COMES ROMANOWSKI, BUT HE

CAN'T GET BRUNELL.

NOW HE CHASES AFTER.

BRUNELL GONNA RUN.

AND PUSHED OUT OF BOUNDS BY

MAA TANUVASA.

THIS YOUNG GUY FROM HAWAII

QUIETLY HAD A VERY GOOD YEAR,

NUMBER 98.

HE HAD 5 SACKS.

GREW UP AND PLAYED IN HAWAII.

FIRST NAME MEANS "ROCK" IN

SAMOAN.

IS THAT PERFECT?

>> YEAH, THAT'S A GOOD NAME FOR

A DEFENSIVE LINEMAN, BUT BRUNELL

AGAIN -- ROMANOWSKI A FREE SHOT

ON HIM.

JUST BARELY GETS A HAND ON HIM,

BUT DOWN THE FIELD THERE IS

NOWHERE TO GO WITH THE FOOTBALL.

THE BRONCOS DOING AN EXCELLENT

JOB OF COVERING THE RECEIVERS

ONCE BRUNELL BREAKS THE POCKET.

>> THESE GUYS GOT TO UNDERSTAND

SOMETHING, PHIL.

ONCE THEY GET BACK THERE NEAR

BRUNELL, THEY'VE GOT TO SLOW IT

DOWN A LITTLE BIT.

BREAK THE RUSH DOWN.

>> CLOSER TO 6 THAN 5 FOR

BRUNELL.

SCRAMBLES AGAIN.

NOW HE THROWS.

MEANS GOT AWAY WITH A PUSH-OFF

AT THE 41-YARD LINE BUT NO FLAG

DOWN, AS ROMANOWSKI WAS

COVERING.

>> IT DID LOOK LIKE ROMANOWSKI

LOOKING BACK IN THE SUN

MISJUDGED THE BALL.

AND MEANS DID NOT.

>> I THINK HE MISJUDGED HIS

JUMP.

>> [ LAUGHS ]

>> EITHER THAT OR HE THOUGHT HE

WAS MICHAEL JORDAN AND HE WAS

GONNA HANG IN THE AIR FOR A

COUPLE MINUTES.

BUT WATCH BILL ROMANOWSKI JUST

GETS CAUGHT OFF BALANCE,

MISTIMES IT.

IT WAS A NICE TOUCH PASS BY

MARK BRUNELL.

IT HANGS IN THE AIR, AND NATRONE

DOING A GOOD JOB OF GOING UP.

HEY, HE'S GOT SUNGLASSES ON THAT

SHIELD.

MADE IT EASIER FOR HIM.

>> THOSE ARE THE ONLY SUNGLASSES

ALLOWED BY THE JACKSONVILLE

PLAYERS -- ONE OF COUGHLIN'S

RULES.

29 YARDS ON THE PLAY.

BRUNELL OFF PLAY-ACTION.

CHASED AND FINALLY CAUGHT FROM

BEHIND BY HARALD HASSELBACH, WHO

PLAYED WITH BRUNELL AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON.

>> I TELL YOU WHAT I LIKE ABOUT

THIS TEAM.

THEY JUST DON'T GIVE UP,

JACKSONVILLE.

THEY KEEP COMING.

THEY DID IT TO BUFFALO A WEEK

AGO.

HERE'S TONY BOSELLI BLOCKING

HERE.

HE LOOKS BACK TO THE OUTSIDE.

>> HE'S GOT JEFF ROBINSON,

NUMBER 94, ON HIM.

>> THAT'S A TAKEDOWN.

>> YOU KNOW, BOSELLI, HE'S ONE

OF THOSE LINEMEN.

HE'S NOT HAPPY JUST BLOCKING

YOU.

HE WANTS TO TAKE YOU DOWN,

EMBARRASS YOU, ALL THOSE THINGS.

HE'S THE PERFECT LEFT TACKLE TO

HAVE IN THE

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE,

'CAUSE HE TAKES PRIDE IN

PROTECTING HIS QUARTERBACK.

>> SECOND AND 7, AS

JAMES STEWART IN, AND HE HAS IT

ON THE DRAW.

STEWART, WHO PLAYED AT

TENNESSEE, DOESN'T GET MUCH.

TACKLED FORWARD TO THE 35-YARD

LINE BY MICHAEL DEAN PERRY AND

JOHN MOBLEY.

>> THE ONE THING THAT...

TAKE A LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCES

OF THE OFFENSIVE LINE OF THE

JAGUARS AGAINST DENVER'S

DEFENSIVE FRONT.

PAUL, IF I MIGHT, I THINK IT'S

35-POUND DIFFERENCE.

>> WELL, THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T

TRY TO RUN DRAWS AGAINST THESE

GUYS, BECAUSE IF YOU GIVE THESE

GUYS A CHANCE TO RUN AROUND YOU,

THEY'RE GONNA GET THERE.

THEY'RE MUCH QUICKER.

SO, YOU GOT TO RUN DIRECTLY AT

THEM.

>> THREE WIDE RECEIVERS RIGHT,

AS BRUNELL OPERATES FROM THE

SHOTGUN.

AND HERE COMES ROMANOWSKI.

ELUDES HIM AND GUNS COMPLETE.

IT IS WILLIE JACKSON FOR A FIRST

DOWN INSIDE THE 20.

>> I KEEP TELLING YOU, WHEN YOU

GET TO BRUNELL, YOU'VE GOT TO

BREAK DOWN.

YOU'VE GOT TO SLOW IT DOWN.

ROMANOWSKI COMES UP THE MIDDLE,

NOT A SOUL NEAR HIM, AND ALL

BRUNELL DOES IS STEP ASIDE.

WATCH THIS.

HERE COMES ROMANOWSKI, STRAIGHT

UP THE MIDDLE.

WATCH WHAT BRUNELL DOES.

BOOM. BACK TO THE OUTSIDE.

>> I KNOW.

YOU WANT TO BREAK DOWN, BUT I'M

SURE THEY'RE THINKING, "THIS GUY

IS QUICK.

HE'S FAST."

AND ROMANOWSKI COMING STRAIGHT

AT HIM, HE CAN GO EITHER WAY.

>> I UNDERSTAND THAT.

I'M JUST SAYING, YOU'VE GOT TO

BREAK YOURSELF DOWN AND GET IN

HIS FACE AND DON'T LET HIM JUKE

YOU.

>> SO, THE JAGUARS, TRAILING

ONLY 12-3 DEEP IN DENVER

TERRITORY.

NATRONE MEANS BANGING INSIDE THE

10-YARD LINE, AND YOU COULD HEAR

THE HELMETS CRACK ON THAT ONE IN

THE COLLISION.

>> NOW THERE'S A POINT

TOM COUGHLIN MADE TO US

YESTERDAY, TALKING ABOUT

DENVER'S RUN DEFENSE.

IT RANKS VERY HIGH, BUT

AVERAGE YARDS PER RUSH, IT'S NOT

SO GOOD.

IT'S 18th IN THE LEAGUE BECAUSE

THEY'RE ALWAYS AHEAD.

SO, TEAMS DO NOT HAVE THE

PATIENCE TO STAY WITH THE

RUNNING GAME.

SO, JACKSONVILLE, THEY SHOULD

HAVE SOME SUCCESS INSIDE.

>> WELL, ONE OTHER THING WE

SAID, TOO.

HE SAID, "WE COULD BEAT THIS

TEAM IF WE DON'T TURN IT OVER."

>> SECOND AND 3 FROM THE 9.

MEANS AGAIN.

STEPS AWAY FROM A TACKLE, AND

MEANS WILL SCORE!

NATRONE, PICKING UP FROM HIS

175-YARD EFFORT OF A WEEK AGO,

GETS 8 MORE ON THAT.

HAS 58 YARDS RUSHING IN THIS

OPENING HALF, AND JACKSONVILLE

IS BACK IN THE GAME.

>> WELL, JUST LIKE A PASSING

QUARTERBACK, KEEP HIM IN THE

POCKET.

THE DEFENSE HAS TO DO THE SAME

THING.

STAY IN YOUR LANES, BE

DISCIPLINED.

DENVER WAS NOT THAT TIME.

THEY OVERPURSUED.

AND NATRONE -- HEY, LAST WEEK,

THIS WEEK.

A LITTLE PATIENCE, BREAKS IT

OUTSIDE.

THERE'S NOBODY THERE.

>> MIKE HOLLIS FOR THE EXTRA

POINT.

BARKER, THE PUNTER, HOLDS, AND

HOLLIS CONNECTS.

AND DENVER'S LEAD REDUCED TO 2.

NATRONE MEANS -- BOBBY BEATHARD

OF THE CHARGERS SET HIM FREE

EARLIER THIS YEAR.

NOT A PLACE FOR HIM IN THE

CHARGER CAMP AND PICKED UP BY

JACKSONVILLE, AND TOM COUGHLIN

SAID A MODEL STUDENT AND

PERFORMER.

DOWN IT COMES TO HEBRON.

AND VAUGHN HEBRON OF THE BRONCOS

TO THE FAR SIDELINES.

FINALLY RUNS OUT OF ROOM AS HE

TURNS ON THE JETS, KNOCKED OUT

AT THE 41-YARD LINE BY

MIKE HOLLIS.

THAT LAST DRIVE FOR

JACKSONVILLE -- 80 YARDS IN

10 PLAYS.

BOTH THEIR DRIVES HAVE BEEN

10 PLAYS, AND HERE WAS A

CRITICAL CALL AND PLAY.

TORY JAMES WEDGING HIS WAY FOR

THE BALL INTERCEPTS.

NOT RULED AN INTERCEPTION.

RULED INTERFERENCE.

KEPT THE DRIVE ALIVE -- A KEY,

KEY PLAY.

MIKE SHANAHAN APPARENTLY HAS

BEEN JAWING WITH THE OFFICIALS

ON THE SIDELINE SINCE.

12-10 DENVER AS WE APPROACH THE

2:00 WARNING, FIRST HALF.

THIS IS WHERE ELWAY'S AT HIS

BEST.

IT-- OH, MY!

ALMOST INTERCEPTED BY

AARON BEASLEY.

THAT WAS RIGHT IN HIS MITTS AS

HE MADE THE MOVE IN FRONT OF

McCAFFREY.

>> AARON BEASLEY SET ON THE PLAY

THE WHOLE TIME.

HE SEES JOHN ELWAY.

HE READ ED McCAFFREY'S ROUTE.

AND LOOK AT THE BREAK.

HE STUMBLES.

OTHERWISE, HE WOULD HAVE CAUGHT

THIS IN FULL STRIDE.

AND JOHN ELWAY --

>> HE WAS GETTING READY TO MAKE

THE TACKLE.

>> I KNOW THAT MOVE.

I KNOW THAT MOVE.

THROW IT AND RUN AND TRY TO MAKE

THE TACKLE.

>> BEASLEY, THE ROOKIE FROM

WEST VIRGINIA, HAD JUST ONE

INTERCEPTION IN HIS FIRST YEAR

IN THE BIGS.

SECOND AND 10.

ELWAY WITH A SECOND LOOK.

NOW HE DOES A LITTLE SCRAMBLING.

CLYDE SIMMONS CAN'T GET HIM.

ELWAY, FIRST DOWN AT THE 47 OF

JACKSONVILLE.

EDDIE ROBINSON FINALLY MADE THE

TACKLE, AND TERRELL DAVIS A NICE

JOB WITH A BLOCK.

>> BOY, TERRELL DAVIS REALLY

DOES MAKE A NICE BLOCK.

HE ENABLES JOHN ELWAY TO PICK UP

THE FIRST DOWN.

AS ELWAY STARTS TO SCRAMBLE,

HE'S LOOKING.

THIS THING BREAKS DOWN RIGHT AT

THE BEGINNING.

CLYDE SIMMONS COMES IN.

WATCH ELWAY AND NUMBER 30 IS

TERRELL DAVIS ON THE LEFT OF

YOUR SCREEN.

HERE HE COMES IN.

HE MAKES THE BLOCK ON McMANUS,

RIGHT THERE, AND IT ENABLES

JOHN ELWAY TO GET THE FIRST

DOWN.

>> THAT'S 3 SCRAMBLES FOR

ELWAY, 30 YARDS, TO KEEP DRIVES

ALIVE.

NOW FIRST DOWN.

LOOKING, LOOKING, AND THROWING

LONG.

TOO LONG FOR ANTHONY MILLER.

MICKEY WASHINGTON ON HIM, AND

THAT TAKES US TO THE 2:00

WARNING.

BEEN TEEING IT UP TO THAT BIG

GUY, AND HE LIKES, SO MANY NFL

PLAYERS, TO HIT THE FAIRWAYS.

DENVER AND ELWAY, LEADING,

12-10.

SECOND DOWN AT THE JACKSONVILLE

47.

ELWAY BEING CHASED BY

TONY BRACKENS.

AND BRACKENS GETS HIM.

AND ELWAY FORTUNATE HE DIDN'T

FUMBLE, DOWN AT THE 46-YARD

LINE, A GAIN OF A YARD.

SO, NO SACK.

AND THIS YOUNG MAN FROM TEXAS

HAS BEEN QUITE A FIND.

>> WELL, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

BRACKENS, THOUGH, THERE'S JUST

NO QUIT.

WATCH HIM.

HE'S BLOCKED AT THE LINE OF

SCRIMMAGE BY ZIMMERMAN THERE,

AND THEN HE JUST KEEPS GOING

AFTER ELWAY.

AND LOOK WHAT HE DOES.

NOW HE GOES FOR THE BALL.

THAT'S HEADS-UP FOOTBALL.

>> NO SACK, A GAIN OF 1 FOR

ELWAY.

SO, IT'S THIRD DOWN AND 9.

LOOK AT BRACKENS IN HIS ROOKIE

YEAR.

HE'S THE YOUNGEST PLAYER ON THE

FIELD.

HE JUST TURNED 22.

TACKLES FOR LOSS, 5 FORCED

FUMBLES, AND YOU CAN SEE WHY,

THE WAY HE WENT AFTER ELWAY ON

THAT LAST CHARGE.

TIME-OUT WITH 1:20 LEFT, AND THE

TIME-OUT TAKEN BY JACKSONVILLE.

BRACKENS, WHILE WE HAVE A

MOMENT, A MOST INTERESTING YOUNG

MAN.

I LIKE WHAT HE SAID YESTERDAY.

HE SAID, "MY FATHER IS A

RANCHER."

THEY HAVE AN 800-ACRE RANCH

SOUTH OF DALLAS.

SAID, "HE MADE ME WORK FOR EVERY

PENNY.

HE TAUGHT ME A WONDERFUL

LESSON."

>> WELL, YOU CAN SEE IT IN THE

WAY HE PLAYS.

HE KEEPS HUSTLING.

HE'S A HARD WORKER.

AND HE ALSO TOLD US.

"WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST ATTRIBUTE

AS A PLAYER?"

HE JUST GOES, "SPEED."

>> ELWAY, THIRD DOWN, 9.

[ WHISTLE BLOWS ]

FLAGS DOWN.

AND IT APPEARED THAT

BRIAN HABIB MIGHT HAVE PULLED

BACK PREMATURELY, AND THAT

BRINGS A LITTLE SIGH TO

SHANAHAN.

>> BEFORE THE SNAP, FALSE START,

NUMBER 75 ON THE OFFENSE.

5 YARDS, STILL THIRD DOWN.

>> WE TALKED TO ELWAY YESTERDAY,

AND HE MADE SOME STATEMENTS IN

THE PAPER, TOO, THAT THEY

THOUGHT THIS TEAM MAY BE TOO

ANXIOUS.

THERE'S HABIB, NUMBER 75, THAT'S

GONNA BE MOVING BEFORE.

THAT'S WHAT THEY CALLED.

BUT ELWAY SAID, "I MAY HAVE TO

PULL THE REINS IN ON THESE

GUYS, DICK, AND CALM THEM DOWN

A LITTLE BIT."

I DON'T SEE THAT THEY'RE THAT

HYPED UP.

THEY'VE JUST MADE SOME MISTAKES.

>> NOW ELWAY LOOKING AT THIRD

AND 14.

PROTECTION BREAKS DOWN, BUT

ELWAY ON THE SCRAMBLE.

THROWS UNDERNEATH FOR

TERRELL DAVIS.

TACKLED AT THE 45, 8 YARDS SHY

OF A FIRST DOWN, AS

KEVIN HARDY MAKES THE PLAY.

AND JACKSONVILLE STOPS DENVER

HERE WITH 1:05 LEFT IN THE HALF,

AND THE JAGUARS SPEND THEIR LAST

TIME-OUT WITH 1:05 LEFT, HOPING

THAT THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO

MANUFACTURE A DRIVE, AT LEAST

FOR A FIELD GOAL.

WOULD THAT BE SOMETHING, IF

HALFTIME ENDED WITH

TOM COUGHLIN'S TEAM IN THE LEAD?

THIS IS A TEAM THAT DIDN'T WIN 6

IN A ROW BY ACCIDENT.

>> NO, NO.

>> YESTERDAY, WE TALKED TO HIM.

HE SAID, "I HAD A PLAN TO WIN

THE GAME IN BUFFALO."

HE COULD SEE HOW THEY COULD WIN

IT.

SO, I SAID, "WELL, WHAT ABOUT

THIS GAME?"

HE GOES, "WELL, I DON'T KNOW.

>> [ LAUGHS ]

>> HE DIDN'T KNOW.

HE SAYS, "I JUST HOPE THAT

SOME WAY WE GET OUT THERE, MAKE

SOME PLAYS.

I HOPE WE FIND A WAY TO GET IT

DONE," BECAUSE I DON'T THINK HE

COULD REALLY SPOT A WEAKNESS IN

THE DENVER TEAM.

HE WAS JUST HOPING HIS GUYS

WOULD RISE TO THE OCCASION AND

SOME GUYS MAKE SOME BIG PLAYS.

AND THEIR QUARTERBACK HAS BEEN

THE BIGGEST SO FAR.

MARK BRUNELL IS KEEPING THIS

TEAM IN THE GAME.

>> BY ELUDING THE PRESSURE AND

MAKING PLAYS.

ROUEN TO PUNT TO CHRIS HUDSON.

OFF THE SIDE OF THE FOOT, DYING

SPIRAL, AND HUDSON FAIR-CATCHES

IT RIGHT AT HIS SPOT.

THE 11-YARD LINE THEY'LL GIVE

HIM.

AND WITH 57 SECONDS LEFT,

MARK BRUNELL TAKES THE FIELD.

>> TOM COUGHLIN HAS GOTTEN SO

MUCH CRITICISM ABOUT BEING A

DISCIPLINARIAN, BUT WHEN YOU

LOOK AT THESE GUYS, YOU CAN SEE

HIS COACHING IN THIS TEAM.

THEY ARE TRULY DISCIPLINED

PLAYERS.

THEY HAVE NOT GOTTEN AWAY FROM

THEIR GAME PLAN.

THEY'RE DOING THE THINGS THAT

THEY CAME INTO THIS GAME TO DO,

AND THEY'RE WITHIN 2 POINTS OF

THE BRONCOS NOW.

>> AND THUS FAR, NO MISTAKES,

AND THAT WAS A CONCERN OF

COUGHLIN, ESPECIALLY BRUNELL,

WHO HAS THROWN SOME TOUGH

INTERCEPTIONS.

HERE COMES NATRONE MEANS, AND

MEANS, WITH A RUNNING START, ALL

THE WAY OUT TO THE 35-YARD LINE.

THEY'RE GONNA SPOT HIS KNEE DOWN

33.

ALDRIDGE AND BRAXTON MAKE THE

TACKLE.

JACKSONVILLE WITH NO TIME-OUTS,

AND BRUNELL HAS TO SHOUT OUT THE

CALL TO HIS WIDE RECEIVER AS HE

DROPS BACK IN THE SHOTGUN WITH

36 SECONDS.

SLIPS, SCRAMBLES.

THROWS DOWNFIELD.

WIDE OPEN IS JIMMY SMITH, AND

SMITH IS OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE

DENVER 24.

>> JACKSONVILLE CALLED THE

TIME-OUT BEFORE DENVER PUNTED

FOR THE REASON WHY?

TAKE A CHANCE WITH A RUN.

GET IN POSITION TO MAKE

SOMETHING HAPPEN.

THE RUN HAPPENS.

AND WATCH JIMMY SMITH AT THE TOP

OF YOUR SCREEN.

BRUNELL GETS OUT OF THE POCKET,

MAKES THE CORNER COME UP.

NOBODY BACK THERE TO COVER THE

WIDE RECEIVER.

THOSE ARE THE KIND OF THINGS

THAT HAPPEN WITH A SCRAMBLING

QUARTERBACK.

THE DEFENSE BREAKS DOWN.

>> AND THIS IS WHAT THE

DEFENSIVE SECONDARY COACHES

TELL YOU.

THEY SAY, "WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO

WITH A GUY LIKE BRUNELL -- YOU

MUST BE PATIENT.

STAY WITH YOUR MAN.

DON'T THINK YOU'RE GONNA COME UP

AND MAKE THE PLAY ON BRUNELL.

GET BACK AND STAY WITH YOUR MAN.

BE DISCIPLINED."

>> THEY'RE IN FIELD-GOAL RANGE

AFTER THAT 43-YARD PLAY, AND

SMITH CAN'T HANDLE THAT ONE.

COVERED BY LIONEL WASHINGTON.

LIONEL WASHINGTON AT THAT CORNER

TALKS ABOUT HIM RETIRING.

HE WENT TO TULANE, IS FROM

NEW ORLEANS, AND SAID --

LIONEL, NUMBER 48 FOR THE

BRONCOS -- "IF I CAN GET TO THE

SUPER BOWL AND WIN IT IN MY

HOMETOWN, THAT MIGHT BE A

MESSAGE FOR ME TO THEN HANG IT

UP."

>> ONE THING HERE WITH BRUNELL,

JUST TAKING A LOOK AT WHAT HE'S

GOT IN FRONT OF HIM.

PHIL, IT'S SECOND DOWN.

HE'S GOT 20 SECONDS.

HE'S GOT A CHANCE TO GO AT LEAST

TWICE TO THE END ZONE.

>> 20 SECONDS LEFT.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GET CAUGHT

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD,

THOUGH, WITH NO TIME-OUTS.

BRUNELL...

THROWS IT AWAY.

McCARDELL WAS THE CLOSEST

RECEIVER.

>> ALL RIGHT, THAT TOOK 6.

>> ALFRED WILLIAMS WAS THE MAN

PURSUING BRUNELL.

>> GOOD JOB BY ALFRED WILLIAMS.

WE'VE SEEN HIM GET CAUGHT

INSIDE, LET BRUNELL GET OUTSIDE.

HE STAYS OUT THERE.

BRUNELL WANTS TO BREAK THE

POCKET, BUT ALFRED WILLIAMS

MAKES HIM THROW IT AWAY.

LOOK AT NUMBER 91.

JUMPS AND THEN HE'S STILL IN

GOOD POSITION TO MAKE THE

QUARTERBACK THROW IT AWAY AND

THEN SAYS, "HEY."

>> THAT'S A GOOD POINT.

IF HE GETS CAUGHT INSIDE, THEN

BRUNELL HAS A LOT OF ROOM.

THIS WILL BE SPOTTED AT THE 32,

A 42-YARDER TO GIVE JACKSONVILLE

THE LEAD.

MIKE HOLLIS TO KICK.

A KNUCKLER, AND IT IS...

GOOD!

JACKSONVILLE 13, DENVER 12.

REPEAT THAT, PAUL.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULDN'T BELIEVE

THAT...

>> [ LAUGHS ]

>> AND YOU KNOW WHAT?

HERE'S A TEAM, JACKSONVILLE,

THAT COMES IN.

AND, BOY, DON'T YOU LOVE IT?

THEY'RE A 14-POINT UNDERDOG

COMING INTO THIS GAME.

NOBODY IN THIS COUNTRY WOULD

GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO WIN THIS

FOOTBALL GAME.

WELL, THERE'S ANOTHER 30 MINUTES

AND 10 SECONDS LEFT TO PLAY,

FOLKS.

BUT JUST TAKE A LOOK.

THIS LITTLE LINE-DRIVE SHOT

RIGHT HERE -- RIGHT DOWN THE

MIDDLE, AND THEY TAKE THE LEAD

AT 13-12.

NOW, WE SAW SOMETHING LIKE THIS

HAPPEN A WEEK AGO AT PITTSBURGH.

INDIANAPOLIS, THEY CAME BACK AND

GOT PITTSBURGH IN THE FIRST

HALF, WENT AHEAD.

THERE'S A LONG 30 MINUTES TO GO.

>> WELL, MIKE SHANAHAN TOLD US,

"THE WILD CARD, MARK BRUNELL,

GOT TO KEEP HIM UNDER CONTROL."

THEY HAVE NOT DONE THAT.

THAT'S THE BIGGEST REASON BY FAR

THAT DENVER'S LOSING THIS GAME

RIGHT NOW.

>> THE OTHER THING THAT THESE

GUYS HAVE DONE FROM

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- THEY'VE

TAKEN THIS CROWD TOTALLY OUT OF

THIS BALLGAME.

>> WELL, THEY'VE DONE SOMETHING

ELSE.

THOSE EARLY JITTERS ON THE ROAD,

UNDERDOG TEAM, YOUNG TEAM,

FAIRLY INEXPERIENCED PLAYOFF.

THEY DROP BEHIND TWO TOUCHDOWNS,

BUT CLYDE SIMMONS, BLOCKING THE

EXTRA POINT, CHANGES IT A LITTLE

BIT BECAUSE THEN THEY HAVE TO GO

FOR 2, DENVER, ON THEIR SECOND

TOUCHDOWN.

DON'T CONVERT.

SO, IT'S 12-0, AND IN THE SECOND

QUARTER, ALL THE SCORING BELONGS

TO JACKSONVILLE, ALL 13 POINTS

GOING TO THE JAGUARS -- TWO

FIELD GOALS AND A TOUCHDOWN.

AND THIS YOUNG MAN -- HOW CAN

YOU NOT THINK OF STEVE YOUNG

WHEN YOU SEE HIM PLAY, THE YOUNG

STEVE YOUNG, QUICK AND

STRONG-ARMED AND CLEVER?

HOLLIS WILL JUST SKID ONE DOWN

THROUGH, HOPING TO CHECK ANY

LONG RETURN.

PICKED UP BY THE TIGHT END,

BYRON CHAMBERLAIN.

TACKLED AT THE 35 WITH 5 SECONDS

LEFT.

DARREN STUDSTILL MADE THE STOP

FOR JACKSONVILLE.

>> ONE THING ABOUT, TOO,

BRUNELL, PHIL -- THE GUY THREW

FOR 4,300 YARDS.

I MEAN, THOSE WEREN'T GIMMES.

THIS GUY CAN REALLY PLAY.

THE THING THAT MAKES HIM SO

GOOD -- HE'S SO MOBILE.

>> PAUL, HE'S THE BEST PLAYER ON

THE TEAM.

SO, GIVE THE BEST PLAYER THE

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THE PLAYS.

AND THAT'S WHAT THIS COACHING

STAFF DOES.

YOU'VE GOT TO COMMEND THEM FOR

IT.

HEY, HE DOES A GOOD JOB WITH THE

FOOTBALL.

THAT'S WHY THEY KEEP GIVING HIM

THOSE OPPORTUNITIES.

>> NO LONG GAMBLE PLAY BY ELWAY.

HE TAKES THE KNEEL-DOWN.

THE END OF THE HALF, AND A

SURPRISING SCORE IN BRIGHT

LIGHTS HERE AT

MILE HIGH STADIUM.

MARK BRUNELL AND THE

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS WITH 13

UNANSWERED POINTS IN THE SECOND

QUARTER, OWN THE LEAD, 13-12.

WELCOME BACK TO

MILE HIGH STADIUM IN DENVER.

THE BRONCOS WILL GET THE BALL

FIRST TO OPEN THE SECOND HALF.

FIRST, LET'S LOOK AT THE

COORS LIGHT HALFTIME STATISTICS.

VERY EVEN, AS IS THE SCORE.

NO TURNOVERS AND JACKSONVILLE

PLAYING BASICALLY DENVER EVEN

WITH A GREAT SECOND QUARTER

AFTER THE BRONCOS OPENED WITH A

FLOURISH -- A COUPLE OF

TOUCHDOWNS BUT UNABLE TO

CONVERT THE TWO EXTRA POINTS.

>> WELL, I THINK BOTH COACHES

TOLD US THE SAME THING.

"IF WE DON'T TURN THE BALL OVER,

WE SHOULD WIN THE FOOTBALL

GAME."

WELL, NEITHER TEAM HAS TURNED

THE BALL OVER, AND IT'S A

1-POINT GAME.

>> ANY FEELINGS ABOUT THIS

SECOND HALF?

>> WELL, A LOT OF FEELINGS.

IT SOUNDS GREAT -- CONTAIN

MARK BRUNELL.

BUT YOU CAN SEE PHYSICALLY FOR

THE PLAYERS, EVEN WHEN THEY GET

IN POSITION, HE'S SO GOOD, SO

ATHLETIC, THEY CAN'T GET THE JOB

DONE.

SO, MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR DENVER

TO COME UP WITH A NEW PLAN.

>> HOLLIS SENDS IT INTO THE

SHADOWS OF THE NORTHERN END OF

MILE HIGH.

VAUGHN HEBRON, 25, 30.

SEES A SEAM!

ONE MAN TO BEAT, AND HOLLIS IS

ABLE TO TRIP HIM UP.

A FLAG IS DOWN.

MIKE HOLLIS DID A GREAT JOB OF

DENYING HEBRON.

OF COURSE, THE PENALTY'S GONNA

BRING IT BACK, ANYWAY.

BUT IT APPEARED HEBRON HAD A

TOUCHDOWN UNTIL HOLLIS STUCK HIS

HEAD IN THERE.

"COMING BACK," SAYS RED CASHION.

WELL, A COUPLE OF KEY PENALTIES

NOW -- ONE DENYING DENVER AN

INTERCEPTION WHEN THEY LED,

12-0.

WOULD HAVE HAD THE BALL AT THE

25 OF JACKSONVILLE.

AND NOW THIS ONE WILL TAKE IT

BACK AND DENY THE BRONCOS FIELD

POSITION.

>> DURING THE RETURN, HOLDING,

NUMBER 94, BY THE RECEIVERS.

10 YARDS, FIRST DOWN AND 10.

>> JEFF ROBINSON.

>> NUMBER 94.

THERE HE IS, RIGHT AT THE BOTTOM

OF THE SCREEN.

YOU SEE HIS ARMS WRAPPED AROUND.

HE'S HOLDING.

YOU'RE RIGHT OUT IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE FIELD.

YOU JUST CAN'T DO IT.

>> THAT TAKES IT ALL THE WAY

BACK TO THE DENVER 17 FOR ELWAY.

TERRELL DAVIS, WHO RUSHED FOR

71 YARDS IN THE FIRST HALF, WITH

HIM.

AND HE GETS THE CALL.

DAVIS TO THE 20-YARD LINE, A

GAIN OF 3.

LET'S GO DOWN TO JIM GRAY.

>> ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, DICK.

I SPOKE TO MIKE SHANAHAN.

HE SAID HE'S NOT OVERLY

CONCERNED.

HE SAID, "IF WE PLAY OUR GAME IN

THE SECOND HALF, WE WILL WIN

THIS GAME."

VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE

TACKLING.

TOLD HIS GUYS THEY MUST TACKLE

BETTER.

AS FOR TRYING TO STOP

MARK BRUNELL, HE SAYS, "WE'VE

JUST GOT TO TRY AND LIMIT HIS

BIG PLAYS."

HE KNOWS THAT HE'S NOT GONNA BE

ABLE TO STOP HIM.

HE SAYS, "IF WE STOP

NATRONE MEANS A LITTLE BIT

BETTER, BRUNELL WON'T BE AS

WILD."

DICK?

>> ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, JIM.

SHANAHAN, WORRIED LOOK ON HIS

FACE.

NO ONE HAS REALLY STOPPED MEANS

DURING THIS WINNING STREAK.

ELWAY, WELL-PROTECTED.

THROWS INCOMPLETE.

MIGHT HAVE BEEN DEFLECTED BY

TOM McMANUS IN FRONT OF THE

RECEIVER.

>> YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT IS AN

IMPORTANT DRIVE.

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DRIVE FOR

DENVER FOR THE SIMPLE REASON.

HERE'S A YOUNG TEAM, AND YOU

DON'T WANT THEM TO GET THE

FEELING THEY CAN WIN THIS

FOOTBALL GAME.

IF THEY STOP YOU ON THE FIRST

DOWN, AND YOU'RE HOME, I'M GONNA

TELL YOU WHAT.

YOU PUT A WHOLE LOT OF

CONFIDENCE IN THAT DEFENSE AND

OFFENSE.

>> AND AFTER DENVER STARTED WITH

143 YARDS IN THE OPENING

QUARTER, HAD ONLY 45 YARDS AND

2 FIRST DOWNS IN THE ENTIRE

SECOND PERIOD.

THIRD AND 7 FOR ELWAY OUT OF THE

SHOTGUN.

THROWS UNDERNEATH TO

SHANNON SHARPE, AND SHARPE WITH

A FIRST DOWN TO THE 33.

13 ON THE PLAY.

>> THEY GOT THAT OFFENSE THAT

YOU LIKE.

HE'S FIVE GUYS WIDE.

>> DENVER PUTS FIVE

WIDE RECEIVERS OUT ON THE

FIELD, AND THEY SPREAD.

LOOK AT THE FIVE

WIDE RECEIVERS.

WATCH THE BLITZ FROM UP TOP.

BUT THE PROBLEM IS, IT JUST

CREATES TOO MANY HOLES DOWN THE

FIELD.

LOOK AT SHANNON SHARPE.

NOBODY AROUND HIM.

THE FIVE WIDE RECEIVERS COVER

THE WHOLE FIELD.

IT'S VERY TOUGH ON THE DEFENSE.

>> HE HAD ACTUALLY TWO CHOICES

ON THAT PLAY.

>> ONLY THE SECOND CATCH FOR

SHARPE.

ONE OF THOSE, OF COURSE, EARLIER

FOR THE TOUCHDOWN.

TO CRAVER.

30, 36-YARD LINE.

TACKLED BY KEVIN HARDY.

BEASLEY REECE?

>> THANKS A LOT, DICK.

I SPOKE TO TOM COUGHLIN.

HE SAID HE TOLD HIS PLAYERS THE

SCORE IS 0-0.

THERE WAS NO HALFTIME

CELEBRATION FOR THE JAGUARS.

THEY ARE NOT SURPRISED THAT

THEY'RE LEADING THE FOOTBALL

GAME.

HE SAID THE KEY IN THE FIRST

HALF WAS THE TWO BIG DEFENSIVE

STOPS AND TWO BIG RUNS BY

NATRONE MEANS.

BACK TO YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT, BEASLEY.

IT MUST HAVE BEEN A DIFFERENT

COUGHLIN THAN THE ONE IN THE

PRESEASON.

I GUESS HE THREW THE GATORADE

BUCKET AND RAISED CAIN IN THE

FINAL PRESEASON GAME OF THE

YEAR.

HE GOT THEIR ATTENTION, AND THEY

WOUND UP BEATING DENVER IN THAT

GAME.

SECOND AND 7.

THREE IN THE PATTERN.

ELWAY...

TRAPPED, CAUGHT, DOWN HE GOES.

BODY-SLAMMED BY EDDIE ROBINSON.

ROBINSON, WHO HAD ONLY ONE SACK

ALL SEASON, GETS ONE TODAY.

>> WELL, THIS IS THE ZONE BLITZ

FOR THE JAGUARS.

WATCH THE DEFENSIVE ENDS DROP

OFF, THE BLITZ FROM THE OUTSIDE.

DENVER -- THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM

FOR THE DENVER OFFENSE.

THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY

THEY WANTED TO SPREAD THE FIELD.

SO, IT WOULD BE HARDER FOR THAT

DEFENSE TO COVER THE RECEIVERS

ON THAT ZONE BLITZ.

>> THE JAGUARS WERE LAST IN THE

LEAGUE A YEAR AGO, ONLY

17 SACKS.

THEY'VE ADDED THAT BY SOME 20,

AND THAT'S SIMMONS AND BRACKENS

AND HARDY, THREE NEW FACES.

THIRD DOWN AND 8.

THE THROW...INCOMPLETE.

MILLER WITH A ONE-HANDED STAB AT

IT, UNABLE TO PULL IT IN, AS

BUCKY BROOKS, NICKEL BACK, IN TO

COVER.

AND ELWAY GETS UP WITH A GIMPY

WALK.

>> WELL, ONLY 4 RUSHERS, AND THE

JAGUARS GETTING CONFIDENT.

GETTING SOME PRESSURE ON THE

QUARTERBACK, WITH 4 RUSHERS.

JEFF LAGEMAN GETTING AROUND THE

CORNER AGAINST

BRODERICK THOMPSON.

AND, AGAIN, TOM COUGHLIN SAID,

"JEFF LAGEMAN NOT GETTING THE

SACKS BUT DOING A LOT OF GOOD

THINGS FOR OUR DEFENSE."

>> ROUEN TO PUNT TO

CHRIS HUDSON, WHO STANDS AT THE

22.

BUT THE MOMENTUM CONTINUES WITH

JACKSONVILLE.

DYING SPIRAL.

FAIR CATCH AT THE 24 BY HUDSON.

BACK IN DENVER.

I THOUGHT THE THIRD POINT --

MIKE DITKA'S THIRD POINT -- WAS

TRYING TO REMIND US THAT

JACKSONVILLE, OF THEIR 17 GAMES

THIS YEAR, ALL BUT 3 WERE

DECIDED LATE IN THE FOURTH

QUARTER.

THIS IS A TEAM THAT PLAYS YOU TO

THE VERY END.

THEY LEAD, 13-12, FIRST

POSSESSION, SECOND HALF.

NATRONE.

BREAKS THE TACKLE, 35.

AND NATRONE MEANS HAS A FIRST

DOWN AT THE 37-YARD LINE.

...FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF

NORTH CAROLINA, NOW WITH

92 YARDS AFTER THAT RUN.

BRUNELL.

DUMPS IT UNDERNEATH.

MEANS AGAIN.

AND HE HAS ANOTHER FIRST DOWN AT

THE 49-YARD LINE.

MOBLEY THE TACKLER.

>> I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S GOT TO

BE A LITTLE SCARY FOR DENVER,

PHIL.

JACKSONVILLE'S MAKING THIS THING

LOOK EASY.

THEY MADE IT LOOK EASY ON

DEFENSE.

THEY STOPPED THEM RIGHT AWAY.

AND NOW THEY'RE JUST MOVING DOWN

THE FIELD.

NATRONE MEANS COMES OUT.

BRUNELL IS LOOKING.

HE'S THE ONLY OTHER GUY AND THE

ONLY GUY IN THE BACKFIELD WITH

BRUNELL.

HE GOES OUT.

JUST A LITTLE DUMP PASS, AND HE

PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN.

>> AGAIN, THE MEN IN THE

SECONDARY FORCED TO MAKE THE

STOP.

136 TOTAL YARDS FOR MEANS AND A

TOUCHDOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

13-12, JACKSONVILLE.

10:50 LEFT IN THE THIRD.

BRUNELL, KNOCKED DOWN BY

ALFRED WILLIAMS.

AND THAT'S WHAT HE DOES SO WELL,

FORMER HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

STAR IN HOUSTON, TEXAS.

WILLIAMS WITH ANOTHER BAT DOWN.

>> WELL, I'LL YOU WHAT.

OLD MOBLEY, NUMBER 51, WAS

LOOKING OUTSIDE, LIKE HE WAS IN

A POSITION TO PICK THIS BALL UP.

BUT THIS IS YOUR BEST DEFENSE

RIGHT HERE.

ALFRED WILLIAMS GOING UP,

KNOCKING THE BALL OUT OF THE

WAY.

THAT TIME, BOSELLI DIDN'T GET

HIS HANDS ON HIM UNTIL AFTER THE

BALL WAS KNOCKED DOWN.

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

>> ALFRED WITH A BIG SMILE AND

ONE OF THE BIGGEST LAUGHS IN THE

LEAGUE -- WHAT A DELIGHTFUL,

YOUNG GUY HE IS.

HE IS HAPPY.

NOT HAPPY TO SEE MEANS TEAR INTO

THAT LINE AGAIN, TO THE 45 --

A GAIN OF ALMOST 7.

>> DICK, ISN'T IT INTERESTING

WHAT HE GAVE UP TO COME TO

DENVER, OR FIRST TO GO TO

SAN FRANCISCO AND THEN HERE IN

DENVER?

>> OH, ALFRED WILLIAMS?

>> YES.

>> THAT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

LAST YEAR, CINCINNATI OFFERED

HIM WITH A BONUS $2.5 MILLION.

HE SAID NO AND PLAYED FOR

$400,000 IN SAN FRANCISCO AND

SAID, "IT WAS A GOOD MOVE,

'CAUSE IT GOT ME HERE, AND I

LEARNED A LOT IN ONE YEAR IN

SAN FRANCISCO."

[ CROWD CHEERS ]

THIRD AND 3.

QUICK PASS COMPLETE TO

WILLIE JACKSON.

JACKSON STILL ALIVE AND FINALLY

DOWN AT THE 33-YARD LINE.

RANDY HILLIARD MADE THE TACKLE.

>> WELL, IT'S A GOOD JOB OF

JACKSONVILLE, RECOGNIZING THE

BLITZ.

THEY GOT A QUICK PASS ON WITH

THE FIVE WIDE RECEIVERS.

WATCH STEVE ATWATER.

COMES THROUGH FREE.

MARK BRUNELL KNOWS IT.

NOBODY ON THE INSIDE RECEIVER.

GETS RID OF THE FOOTBALL

QUICKLY.

GETS THE COMPLETION.

>> JAMES STEWART RELIEVES

NATRONE MEANS.

STEWART, NUMBER 33, THE LONE

RUNNING BACK.

FIRST DOWN AT THE 33.

IT'S HIS CALL.

AND THE LEADING RUSHER THIS YEAR

FOR THE JAGUARS, WITH

723 YARDS, STEWART, WHO LED ALSO

A YEAR AGO, AS A ROOKIE OUT OF

TENNESSEE.

NUMBER-1 PICK JUST GETS SOME

MINIMAL YARDS, MAYBE 2.

MICHAEL DEAN PERRY THE TACKLER.

>> FIRST DOWN, THE

DENVER BRONCOS SEEMED TO BE

DOING ALL RIGHT ON DEFENSE.

THEY HOLD THEM TO A 1- OR 2-YARD

GAIN.

IT'S SECOND AND THIRD DOWN

THAT'S KILLING THEM.

>> BOTH WIDE RECEIVERS TO THE

RIGHT, PETE MITCHELL LINED UP ON

THE LEFT.

AND NOW McCARDELL IN MOTION.

BRUNELL.

THROWING LONG FOR McCARDELL.

TOUCHDOWN IF THEY CALL IT.

WAS HE IN BOUNDS?

NO CALL YET.

THEY LOOK AT EACH OTHER, THE TWO

OFFICIALS.

NO SIGNAL.

IT'S TOUCHDOWN!

[ CROWD BOOS ]

>> NEVER A DOUBT.

>> 31 YARDS ON THE RUN,

MARK BRUNELL.

WHAT A PERFECT THROW TO

McCARDELL.

CAUGHT THE BALL JUST INCHES FROM

THAT BASELINE.

>> WELL, AGAIN, THE MOVEMENT OF

MARK BRUNELL.

McCARDELL DOWN IN THE END ZONE.

LIONEL WASHINGTON RIGHT ON HIM.

GOES UP.

AND THAT'S GOING UP AND GETTING

AFTER THE BALL.

THAT'S THE REASON, AND GETTING

BOTH FEET DOWN.

>> YEAH, THAT'S WHAT THE TWO

OFFICIALS WERE DISCUSSING, DICK.

IT WASN'T THE FACT THAT HE

CAUGHT THE BALL.

ONE SAID TO THE OTHER ONE, "DID

HE GET BOTH FEET DOWN?"

AND HE DID, AND IT WAS AN

EXCELLENT CALL.

>> MIKE HOLLIS, EXTRA POINT, AND

IT IS GOOD -- BARELY.

DID HE HAVE A MEAN HOOK ON THAT

ONE AND IS ABLE TO GET IT

THROUGH.

20 UNANSWERED POINTS BY THE

YOUNG JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS.

HOLLIS SKIPS ONE THROUGH.

IT'S PATRICK JEFFERS, A

WIDE RECEIVER, AND HAVING

TROUBLES.

DIGS HIS WAY DOWN AT THE 23-YARD

LINE.

>> WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

TOUCHDOWN PLAY BY THE

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS, YOU'RE THE

QUARTERBACK, MARK BRUNELL.

HE DROPS BACK.

HE'S LOOKING DOWN THE FIELD.

HE SPOTS THE RECEIVERS.

YOU STOP IT RIGHT THERE.

EVERYBODY'S COVERED.

HE HAS TO GET OUTSIDE AND MAKE A

PLAY BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING

DOWNFIELD OPEN.

>> WELL, THAT WAS CREATING A

TOUCHDOWN, 31 YARDS.

AND NOW DENVER FROM THE 22.

TERRELL DAVIS ABLE TO GET 3,

ALMOST 4 YARDS BEFORE

PAUL FRASE, A VETERAN, FORMER

JET, MAKES THE TACKLE.

>> WATCH JAMES STEWART HERE,

NUMBER 33, ON ROMANOWSKI, 53.

ROMANOWSKI GETS TAKEN INSIDE.

NOW HIS JOB IS TO GET OUTSIDE

AND TO NOT ALLOW BRUNELL TO GET

OUTSIDE.

WHEN HE DOES THAT, TOUCHDOWN.

>> BOY, THIS KID REALLY DOES

HAVE A NICE ARM, DOESN'T HE?

HE JUST FLICKED THAT BALL ON THE

RUN.

IT WAS RIGHT THERE FOR

McCARDELL.

>> WELL, THAT WAS TOM COUGHLIN'S

FIRST PRIORITY, I THINK, WHEN HE

GOT DOWN THERE.

HE SPOTTED HIM AS THE BACKUP AT

GREEN BAY, AND HE JUDGED HIM.

HE SAID, "THAT'S THE GUY I WANT

BEING MY QUARTERBACK."

>> SECOND AND 6 AND DAVIS ABLE

TO SQUEAK IT OUT TO THE 30,

2 YARDS SHY OF A FIRST DOWN.

IVAN JOHN JURKOVIC, THE VETERAN

FROM EASTERN ILLINOIS, IN ON

THAT TACKLE WITH KEVIN HARDY.

HE USED TO HAVE A RADIO SHOW UP

IN GREEN BAY,

"YAKKING WITH JURKO," AND, BOY,

HE...

>> I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.

JURKO WALKED IN THE MEETING.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO ASK HIM A

QUESTION.

HE WALKS IN, SITS DOWN, AND

HE'S, "WHAT DO YOU BOYS NEED?"

HE STARTS! HE JUST STARTS.

>> I LIVE HIS ALL-TIME DREAM.

IF WE GET TIME, WE'LL TALK ABOUT

THAT LATER.

THIRD AND 2.

ELWAY OUT OF THE SHOTGUN, THIRD

AND 2.

THROWS UNDERNEATH COMPLETE TO

MILLER, AND THAT SHOULD BE

ENOUGH.

NEEDED 2, GOT 3.

BUCKY BROOKS MADE THE TACKLE.

>> DICK, THE ONLY THING THAT I

DON'T LIKE ABOUT THIS BALLGAME

FOR DENVER IS THIS -- THAT

JACKSONVILLE'S MAKING IT LOOK

EASY WHEN THEY HAVE THE BALL.

AND ON DEFENSE, WHAT A GOOD JOB

THEY'RE DOING.

AND DENVER'S STRUGGLING.

THEY NEEDED 2 YARDS ON A PLAY.

THEY GET 3, AND IT WAS A

STRUGGLE GETTING IT.

>> BUT IT'S IMPORTANT.

THE DENVER OFFENSE, THEY NEEDED

THAT FIRST DOWN TO GET BACK IN

RHYTHM, GET SOME CONFIDENCE, AND

IT KIND OF OPENS UP THE PLAYBOOK

FOR MIKE SHANAHAN, WHERE HE CAN

CALL MORE PLAYS BECAUSE FINALLY

YOU'VE GOT SOME SUCCESS.

>> LESS THAN 7 MINUTES LEFT IN

THE THIRD.

JACKSONVILLE LEADING, 20-12.

PLAY-ACTION TO DAVIS.

GONNA THROW TO DAVIS.

COMPLETE.

THEN, A GOOD, SOLID OPEN-FIELD

TACKLE BY KEVIN HARDY.

HE HAS MADE PLENTY TODAY, THIS

ROOKIE FROM ILLINOIS, DRAFTED AS

THE SECOND PLAYER IN THE DRAFT

THIS LAST SPRING, FROM

EVANSVILLE, INDIANA, THE HOME

BASE OF WAYNE WEAVER, THE OWNER

OF THE JAGUARS.

MADE HIS FORTUNE IN WOMEN'S

SHOES.

>> WELL, KEVIN HARDY, THE

NUMBER-ONE DRAFT PICK BY THE

JAGUARS -- TOM COUGHLIN SAYS,

"HE HAS BEEN EVERYTHING WE

EXPECTED AND MORE."

GREAT SPEED, RUNS AROUND.

HE'S A ROOKIE.

ALWAYS DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S

DOING, BUT THAT SPEED REALLY

HELPS HIM OUT A LOT.

>> AND THERE'S CHAIRMAN OF THE

BOARD, WEAVER.

TEAM PLAYING BEYOND ALL

EXPECTATIONS.

AGAIN TO DAVIS.

AGAIN TACKLED IMMEDIATELY, THIS

TIME BY EDDIE ROBINSON, SHY OF

THE 40-YARD LINE, WHERE IT WILL

BE THIRD DOWN AND 3, DENVER.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT'S AMAZING ABOUT

THIS TEAM, DICK?

IF YOU LOOKED AT KEVIN HARDY,

WHEN YOU SAW HIS NUMBERS UP

THERE -- HE'S TIED FOR THE LEAD

ON THIS TEAM WITH INTERCEPTIONS,

WITH 2!

WITH ONLY 2.
