JACKSONVILLE (KXRM) — Teddy Bridgewater threw for 328 yards and two touchdowns, Pat Surtain II and Kareem Jackson each had an interception, and the Denver Broncos defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-13 Sunday afternoon.

Jacksonville (0-2) began the game with its most impressive drive of the day, going 83 yards on 11 plays and capping it with a touchdown pass from Trevor Lawrence to Marvin Jones Jr.

Denver (2-0) shut down the Jaguars after that offensively, with Jacksonville’s only other touchdown coming via a kickoff return.

Bridgewater’s two touchdown passes went to Tim Patrick and Noah Fant. The Broncos quarterback also connected with Courtland Sutton nine times for 159 yards, which are both career-highs for the wide receiver.

Brandon McManus kicked three field goals, converting from distances of 32, 46 and 40 yards.

The Broncos will host the New York Jets next Sunday. Kickoff is set for 2:05 p.m.
