DENVER (CBS4) – Running back C.J. Anderson said Denver’s experience against Carolina played a role in the screen pass that he turned into a touchdown, helping to launch the Broncos’ comeback.
“It’s a (defensive) look we saw last year during film of the Super Bowl,” Anderson said. “We knew when we got down in the red-zone area that we thought it would be a good play. We just had a feeling when we got that look.”
Anderson went 25 yards for the touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter.
“I did enough to make it look like I was really blocking (Panthers linebacker) Thomas Davis and just slipped out,” he said. “The rest was in the end zone. It was a great block by our O-linemen, but it was a really great block by D.T. (Demaryius Thomas) down by the goal line to get me in.”
