Sarah Whittaker walked briskly toward the entrance of the UCHealth Training Center in Englewood on Thursday morning, clad in a blue Brandon Marshall No. 15 jersey. The sun shone bright, the sky a deep blue. Fans tossed footballs in the parking lot. Whittaker couldn't stop smiling.

CB De'Vante Bausby. Intercepted a pass thrown by QB Kevin Hogan and tipped by LB Alexander Johnson. "I had the 'squat' (zone coverage) so I gave my guy a shove and then (safety) Su'a Cravens took his vertical route," Bausby said. "There was nobody in my vicinity so when (Hogan) checked down to the running back, (Johnson) tipped it — I was in the right place at the right time."
