CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – Jordan Taylor and the Broncos are off to a 3-0 start after a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

“It’s good to be sitting here at 3-0,” said Taylor of the Broncos hot start.

In the win over Cincinnati, Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 300 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in his first road start.

“He does it every day,” said Taylor. “He goes out there and proves himself on the practice field, and does it against our defense. If you can do that in practice, you’ll have some success taking it out on the field.”

Taylor, who spent last season on the Broncos practice squad, played a big role in helping Peyton Manning rehab from multiple injuries last season.

Taylor and Manning would run routes together in the indoor facility while Manning worked to regain his timing and strength.

“It was an incredible experience. We were in there 3-4 days a week during the practice week before practice for hours at time just trying to get him right,” said Taylor.

“Everything that I learned from him during that process, offensive schemes, route running techniques, it was a great experience for me.”

He spent the 2015 season on Denver’s practice squad, and made his first NFL catch in the Broncos Week 2 win over Indianapolis.

He and the Broncos will be on the road again this Sunday when they travel to Tampa Bay.
