The Royal Treatment

Wide receiver Eddie Royal returns a kickoff (93 yds.) and punt (71 yds.) for a touchdown in Denver’s 34-23 win at San Diego to help the Broncos improve to 6-0 on the season. It marked just the 11th time in NFL history (6th since the merger) that a player accomplished that feat in a game. The 6-0 start tied McDaniels for the third best start by a rookie head coach since 1930 as he joined Red Miller (1977) as only the second head coach in Denver history to win his first six games with the club.
