Quinn struggles in Broncos’ preseason finale
September 2, 2011
GLENDALE, ARIZ. (AP) — Brady Quinn, not Tim Tebow, had the rough game for Denver this time.
Quinn was just 4 of 12 for 26 yards with one interception in one half of play as the Broncos fell to the Arizona Cardinals 26-7 in the teams' final preseason game on Thursday night.
Tebow came on after halftime to complete 7 of 11 for 116 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown pass to Eron Riley with 2:57 to play.
Rich Bartel completed 12 of 16 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns in the first half for the Cardinals (2-2). Arizona's Jay Feely kicked field goals of 37, 25, 52 and 34 yards.
Former Philadelphia linebacker Stewart Bradley, signed as a free agent, intercepted Quinn's pass and returned it 27 yards to the Denver 10-yard line with 1:55 left in the first half to set up Feely's second field goal.
