The Broncos led 10-6 at halftime, when former TE Shannon Sharpe, who skydived into the stadium as part of a tandem parachute jump, was tearfully inducted into the team's Ring of Honor. ... Broncos WR Brandon Marshall had three catches for 34 yards and a holding penalty. ... Buckhalter had 76 yards on nine carries. ... Dumervil's four sacks tied the mark held by several others, most recently Simon Fletcher in 1990.
