Broncos coach says he messed up the defensive game plan

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Broncos coach Vance Joseph is criticizing his team's conservative defensive play against the Oakland Raiders but takes responsibility rather than blaming defensive coordinator Joe Woods.

The Broncos kept giving the Raiders eight-yard cushions and quarterback Derek Carr repeatedly threw quick strikes to those wide-open targets as he set a franchise record by completing 90.6 percent of his passes - 29 of 32 for 288 yards in Oakland's 20-19 loss in Denver on Sunday.

"I thought yesterday defensively that we didn't play aggressively enough in the first half, and that's on me," Joseph said Monday. "This offense obviously poses problems because they come in with a lot of different weapons, a lot of different matchup issues."
