SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes and current Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick caught a touchdown pass to give Denver a halftime lead over the New York Giants.

The Giants hosted the Broncos on Sunday, September 12.

With eight seconds remaining in the first half and New York leading Denver 7-3, Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater hit Patrick for a two-yard completion, which the former Utah wideout took across the goal line for six points.

After an extra point kick, the Broncos took a 10-7 lead into the locker room at halftime.

It was Patrick’s first touchdown of the 2021 season.

The catch capped a seven-play, 57-yard drive that lasted 2:17.

At the break, Patrick had four catches for 39 yards and a touchdown.

Denver’s game against New York is broadcast on FOX.
