Denver Broncos ticketsIn the 2009 NFL Draft the Denver Broncos drafted running back Knowshon Moreno and linebacker/defensive end Robert Ayers in the first round. Weeks 1 through 6 of the 2009 regular season saw the Broncos jump out to a surprising 6-0 with a 3.5 game lead in the AFC West Division. Led by the new quarterback Kyle Orton, the Broncos won the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals 12-7 with an 87 yard touchdown pass dubbed the "Immaculate Deflection" to Brandon Stokley with only 11 seconds left in the game. The Broncos then won their second and third games with convincing 27-6 and 23-3 wins against the lowly Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders, respectively. In Week 4, the Broncos faced their second real test against the Dallas Cowboys. They mounted a fourth quarter comeback to take the game 17-10, with a touchdown catch and run of 51 yards made by Brandon Marshall and a goal line stand against the Cowboys in the closing seconds. Through four weeks, the Broncos defense gave up a league-best 8.5 points per game. In Week 5, the New England Patriots came to Denver, giving Head Coach Josh McDaniels has first chance to get the better of his mentor, Patriots coach Bill Belichick. The Broncos won 20-17 in overtime on a 41 yard field goal kicked by Matt Prater. In Week 6, the Broncos defeated the San Diego Chargers 34-23 in San Diego on Monday Night Football, on the strength of Eddie Royal returning both a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown. Heading into their Week 7 bye, the Broncos were 6-0 and their closest division competition was San Diego at 2-3. All that began to change, however, when the Baltimore Ravens handed the Broncos their first loss of the season in Week 8, defeating them 30-7. In Week 9, the Broncos played at home against the defending champions, the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. The Steelers took a 7-3 halftime lead that the Broncos ultimately were unable to overcome and they went on to win 28-10, dropping the once-undefeated Broncos to 6-2. Week 10 brought what the Broncos were hoping would serve as a game to end their losing streak: a visit to Landover, Maryland, to play the lowly Washington Redskins. With two long touchdown passes to a wide-open Brandon Marshall, Kyle Orton led the Broncos to a 17-14 halftime lead, but on the second-to-last offensive play of the half, Orton went down with a left ankle sprain and he did not play the rest of the game. Back-up quarterback Chris Simms played the second half for the Broncos and went 3-for-13 passing for only 13 yards. The Redskins capitalized on the lack of offense from the Broncos and went on to win 27-17. With the loss to the Redskins, the Broncos fell to 6-3 and saw their lead in the AFC West completely evaporate as the Chargers improved to 6-3 to tie Denver going into their second and final match-up of the season at Invesco Field in Week 11. In that game, the Chargers completely dominated as the ineffective Chris Simms and injured Kyle Orton could not get the Broncos in gear. The Chargers won 32-3 to move to 7-3 and drop the Broncos to 6-4. On Thanksgiving night, the Broncos faced the New York Giants and got back to their winning ways with a decisive 26-6 victory, in which the revived defense only allowed 38 yards of offense in the first half. In week 13, the Broncos completely controlled the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, routing them 44-13. Notable was Denver's defense, causing the Chiefs' starting quarterback, Matt Cassel, to be benched in the third quarter. In Week 14, the Broncos fell to the Indianapolis Colts 28-16 at Lucas Oil Stadium, despite Brandon Marshall setting an NFL-record for receptions in that game with 21 catches. In Week 15, the Broncos were victimized by an Oakland Raiders 4th quarter rally led by previously demoted quarterback JaMarcus Russell, losing 20-19 in the game's final minute. In Week 16, the Broncos were once again victimized by a late score in the final minute, this time at Philadelphia. The Broncos had battled back from a 17-point second half deficit to tie the game, only to have Eagles kicker David Akers nail a late field goal in the game's final seconds for a 30-27 Eagles win.

In Week 17, the Broncos lost at home to the Kansas City Chiefs 44-24 in the 2009 regular season finale, ending the chance of a playoff appearance and finishing 8-8 on the season.
