The Broncos have been penalized 15 times in the first four quarters of a game, and they’ve been hit with penalties for 16 penalties since they were hit with 15 penalties in Week 1.
That means they’ve had 15 penalties on the season.
Broncos defensive end Brandon Marshall says the Broncos need to get back to playing well if they want to get to the playoffs.
“We’ve got to make plays,” Marshall said.
“If you don’t play well, you’re going to get penalized.
It’s just the nature of the game.
We’ve got a lot of things that need to be improved, but I know we can do better.”

New Orleans Saints linebacker Jairus Byrd had nine penalties for 105 yards and two interceptions.
The Green Bay game was also the first of a Week 5 slate that includes a rematch of Super Bowl XLVIII.
