Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio also dodged questions about the questionable calls.
"I can't recall anything," Del Rio cracked. "I have a bad case of amnesia."
The Broncos were without three of their offensive playmakers in rookie receiver Eddie Royal (ankle), tight end Tony Scheffler (groin) and tailback Selvin Young (groin) and they lost slot receiver Brandon Stokley to a concussion shortly after his 11-yard touchdown catch that capped Denver's opening drive.
The Broncos turned the ball over on their next four possessions, twice on fumbles, once on an interception and once on downs.
In the first quarter, Taylor left the game with a head injury after fumbling on Nate Webster's wicked hit, and D.J. Williams recovered for Denver. But Cutler didn't tuck the ball on a scramble on the next play and former Broncos defensive end Reggie Hayward slapped it away to cornerback Rashean Mathis.
Brandon Marshall fumbled away another scoring chance when he tried to fight his way into the end zone but lost the football inside the Jaguars 5. The Jaguars capitalized on that turnover with Jones-Drew's 1-yard TD run put Jacksonville up 10-7.
Notes: The Jaguars are just the third team since 1999 to post wins in Denver in consecutive seasons. ... Broncos RB Michael Pittman's 109 yards on 20 carries marked his biggest workload since 2004.
