Melvin Gordon saved his best run for late in the game to open the NFL season, but it put him over 100 yards and gave him a big day with the Denver Broncos.

With the Broncos holding a 20-7 lead in the fourth quarter, Gordon’s number was called from his own 30-yard line. The blocking set up nicely and he was quickly off to the races, rolling all the way for a 70-yard score.

That put Denver up 27-7, more than enough of a cushion to cruise to the finish line:

Gordon finished off the afternoon with 101 yards on 11 carries and the huge touchdown. He also reeled in 3 catches for 17 yards.

Denver now has a solid supporting cast on offense and a new quarterback with Teddy Bridgewater. It will be interesting to see if Gordon can produce a strong year with that unit.
