Flipbooks: Roby and Ward's picks power Broncos

A frame-by-frame look at Bradley Roby's pick-six against the Chargers, through the lens of team photographer Eric Bakke.

In the Broncos' 27-19 win over the Chargers, defensive backs Bradley Roby and T.J. Ward came up with two of three interceptions on Philip Rivers. The two plays electrified the crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, particularly Roby's, which was returned for a touchdown.

Roby said after the game: "He did an under route, we were in man coverage and I was trailing behind him. I saw out of the corner of my eye that the ball was kind of high, I anticipated the drop and when it flew in the air, I just kind of found it and took it to the house."

A frame-by-frame look at T.J. Ward's interception that he nearly returned for a touchdown, captured through the lens of team photographer Gabriel Christus.

"The way he throws is kind of a low delivery, so that was one thing we emphasized with the d-line; they always do a great job of getting their hands up and knocking the ball down. We had at least four or five of those today and they were crucial."

Ward, though he didn't score, was still pumped that he and his teammate in the defensive backfield, Darian Stewart, each got interceptions: "I told him on the sidelines, I said, 'Stew, we both got picks and we both were on the cover (of the game program) today.' We've got to be on the cover every week."
