A gimme-rewrite moment from earlier: Four Broncos starters in the offensive line, including left tackle Garett Bolles, played every snap in Sunday's loss. Max Garcia played 36 plays at left guard and Allen Barbre played 34 -- 51 and 49 percent respectively. I charted them all during the game and still bobbled the count earlier today.

In Broncos' loss Sunday the five starters in the offensive line, including left tackle Garett Bolles, played all 70 snaps. Bolles had missed practice last Wednesday and had been listed as questionable with a left lower leg injury. At running back Jamaal Charles played 21 snaps, while C.J. Anderson played 49. On defense safety Darian Stewart led the way with 62 snaps (95 percent of defensive snaps). Von Miller played 55 snaps -- 85 percent.

Missed opportunity to move to 3-0

Six of the eight teams to enter Week 3 at 2-0 lost: the Broncos, Lions, Panthers, Raiders, Ravens and Steelers. Historically, that would leave their playoff odds around a coin flip instead of near 75 percent. ESPN's FPI is still bullish on the Steelers (81.7 percent odds), but it pegs the rest of these teams at 50.5 percent or below, with the Panthers all the way down at 27.7 percent.

Wolfe: Need to fight hate with love (0:49)

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was laughing after Sunday's win over Denver about a fourth-quarter unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Von Miller. Taylor said he is "good friends" with fellow 2011 draftee Miller, and joked that he got "played" by an "old school move" by Miller. Taylor added that he did not view Miller's action -- sticking his hand to help Taylor up then pulling it away -- as a slight, but was happy the penalty helped the Bills keep the ball and burn the clock for the victory.

Broncos defense didn't close out the first half like the group would have liked. Buffalo went 38 yards in just under 40 seconds and Steven Hauschka hit a 55-yard field goal to tie the game just before halftime. Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor was 4-of-4 passing to move the Bills into position for the kick.

Broncos came into the game with No. 1 rushing attack in league, but in first quarter three of Broncos' eight carries went for no gain against Bills physical front. The Broncos have 13 yards rushing.

Given 32 Broncos players took a knee during the national anthem today, here is team president/CEO Joe Ellis' statement from last night: "Our players have shown a tremendous commitment to raising awareness for important societal issues by using their platform in a positive way. In addition to their hard work off the field, we have great admiration for their dedication to making our team the absolute best it can be. They've made incredible sacrifices to reach this level, and we recognize they give their all to our team and fans each and every day. As an organization, we could not be more proud, appreciative and grateful for our players. We'll continue to support them and work together to advocate for values of respect, diversity and inclusion."
