Norwood had a rough day as a punt returner. He muffed a 2nd quarter punt which he recovered on the 2 yard line, putting the Broncos in terrible field position and leading to a safety. He also muffed a punt and lost it in the 4th quarter, simply letting the ball bounce off his face mask. Norwood was targeted deep on a post route to start the 4th quarter, but his defender knocked the ball away as he tried to secure the pass.
2016 Week 10 vs NO (3 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Norwood was not targeted until the 4th quarter. He made a diving catch on his first look from Siemian and fell just short of the goal line. He was targeted 2 plays later on an out route, but was driven out of bounds at the 2 yard line after securing the catch. Norwood's last catch of the game was an out route from the slot position that picked up a 1st down. Norwood also had a solid punt return in the 4th quarter that set the Broncos up on the 50 yard line for their final scoring drive.
2016 Week 9 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 56 / 1 rec)
Norwood caught a beautiful 36 yard touchdown pass from Siemian in the 2nd quarter, lining up in the slot and faking a slant before booking it to the corner of the end zone. Siemian faked a handoff left and rolled out right on a bootleg before loading up the deep throw to Norwood for the score. Norwood had another nice reception down the seam in the 4th quarter for a gain of 20 yards.
2016 Week 8 vs SD (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

2016 Week 7 vs HOU (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Norwood caught a short out route on the left side of the field during an early 3rd down attempt in the 1st quarter. Norwood should have had a touchdown catch at the beginning of the 4th quarter, as he hauled in a beautiful over the shoulder corner route in the end zone, but he seemed unaware of the positioning of his feet and failed to get both of them down in bounds. He also handled punt and kick return duties.
2016 Week 6 vs SD (7 / 5 / 39 / 0 rec)
Norwood got to work early, starting in the slot and catching his first target of the game on Denver's first offensive drive for a short gain that failed to convert a 3rd down. Norwood gathered another pass near the line of scrimmage on the next drive for minimal yardage, then converted 3rd and 8 with a quick slant over the middle. Norwood caught another short out route for a gain of 6 in the 3rd quarter. Norwood reeled in another catch late in the 4th for his biggest gain of the day(11 yards). He handled all punt return duties and stepped in on kickoff returns as well after Cody Latimer left the game with a concussion.
2016 Week 5 vs ATL (3 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Norwood remains entrenched as Denver's punt returner, and saw extensive snaps from the slot as the Broncos went with 4WR and 5WR sets for the majority of the 2nd half. He saw 3 targets and recorded both his catches on the Broncos final scoring drive of the game that ended in a Demaryius Thomas touchdown.

Norwood mixed into the third WR slot throughout the day and even lined up once as the tailback on a curious 1st quarter play. Siemian took the snap under center and handed it to Norwood off left tackle, where he was tackled for minimal gain. Norwood could not secure either of his 2 targets on the day.
2016 Week 2 vs IND (4 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Norwood returned punts and worked his way into the receiver rotation by the 2nd quarter. He flashed a nice spin move after his first catch, turning a short out route to the right side of the field into a first down pickup. Norwood finished the day with 24 yards on 3 catches(4 targets total).
2016 Week 1 vs CAR (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
