Rypien Overcomes Pressure, Rallies Broncos Past Cards 24-15

Backup quarterback Brett Rypien overcame relentless pressure from a J.J. Watt-led Arizona defense, Justin Simmons had two interceptions and the Denver Broncos held off the Cardinals 24-15.

The game featured two backup QBs, but Arizona lost Colt McCoy to a concussion early in the third quarter after he took a hit while diving for a first down.

McCoy was intercepted once and his replacement, Trace McSorley, threw two more picks.

Rypien was sacked seven times, including three by Watt, but directed three second-half scoring drives to help the Broncos snap a five-game losing streak.

Latavius Murray ran for 130 yards and a touchdown for Denver.

The Cardinals have lost four straight.
