Pair of touchdowns in loss

Bridgewater (foot/quadriceps) completed 23 of 33 passes for 187 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Broncos' 17-14 loss to the Browns on Thursday night. He also rushed twice for three yards.

Battling multiple lower-body injuries, Bridgewater turned in a reasonably effective effort, connecting with seven different pass catchers along the way. The veteran signal-caller hit each of his primary running backs on his pair of touchdown tosses, linking up with Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams from eight and 10 yards out, respectively, in the second half. Bridgewater did toss an interception for the third straight game, with all five of his picks on the season having come during that span. The battered 28-year-old will now have some extra rest days ahead of a Week 8 home matchup with Washington a week from Sunday.
