Melvin Gordon rushed 15 times for 78 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' Week 1 loss to the Titans, adding three catches for eight yards on three targets.
Gordon out-touched Phillip Lindsay 18-8 because Lindsay had to leave this one early in the second half with a foot injury and never returned. Gordon's longest run went for 25 yards early in the fourth quarter, and he pounded in a one-yard touchdown with 9:08 left in the game to give Denver a 14-13 lead. He did lose a fumble earlier in the contest. If Lindsay is out for an extended time, Gordon's floor will be much safer as an RB2. However, the Week 2 date with the Steelers is definitely one to avoid after Saquon Barkley was bottled up for an ugly 15-6-0 rushing line against Pittsburgh in Week 1. Sep 15 2:32 am (EST)
