Reeling from an embarrassing blowout loss to the New York Jets -- their third defeat in as many games -- the Denver Broncos huddled for a players-only meeting Monday at the team's Dove Valley headquarters.

The revelation came directly from linebacker Brandon Marshall, whoA told CBS Denver's Michael SpencerA they're trying to curtail a once-promising season spiraling out of control.

a€œWe all had a players-only meeting as far as the defense goes,a€ said Marshall. a€œThe defense we met together and we talked some things out. We even had a team meeting where Vance wanted our feedback as well on whata€™s going on and what we need. I think we still have time to turn things around and Ia€™m glad wea€™re having these meetings right now because we all dona€™t want to feel the same way we felt last year.a€

Sunday's debacle in the Big Apple was eerily reminiscent to 2017 in that Denver was outclassed by an inferior opponent. They didn't just lose; they were destroyed in all three phases. They didn't just surrender big plays; they allowed historic output. They were sloppy and undisciplined. They missed tackles, blew assignments and showed a general lack of interest, not unlike last December's drubbing at the hands of the Miami Dolphins.
