SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes linebacker Cody Barton recovered a fumble during the Week 2 NFL game between the Washington Commanders and Denver Broncos.

The Broncos hosted the Commanders at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado on Sunday, September 17.

With 6:34 left in the second quarter, Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked and stripped of the football by Washington’s Jamin Davis. Barton recovered the loose ball and returned it five yards to the Denver 49-yard line. Nine plays later, the Commanders scored a touchdown to trim Denver’s lead to 21-11.

Barton entered the game having recorded five total tackles and three solo tackles in Washington’s season opener.

Washington’s game against Denver is broadcast on CBS and NFL Sunday Ticket.
