Outside of the first offensive play where Manning connected with Dreessen on an out for 11 yards, Manning didn’t rely on his tight ends as pass targets. Both players had one more catch in the game, but it came after Manning was on the bench. Each, unfortunately, had a blunder in the game as well: Dreessen had a bad drop, while Tamme had a missed block which resulted in a tackle for a loss on a run. It is clear that the Broncos plan on giving both players significant playing time. Now it’s a matter of finding out how much they might be used in the passing game.
TE's to help keep Peyton upright? or TE's to throw too?
