Brock Osweiler Nearly Decapitated A Man On The Sidelines With A Throw Away Pass
This is just the perfect video for a Monday. The ultimate ‘life comes at you fast’ clip. In the second quarter of last night’s Patriots vs. Broncos Sunday night game, Brock Osweiler threw away a pass a nearly decapitated a man on the Broncos’ sideline. Osweiler mistakenly drilling his own personnel in the face is a microcosm for the Broncos season. Denver got throttled by the Patriots on national television 41-16, making their fifth straight loss (their worst skid in seven seasons).
“It’s embarrassing. I’m tired of being embarrassed,” defensive end Derek Wolfe told reporters after his 3-6 Broncos defense has given up 92 points in the past two games.
“We used to be a championship team and now we stink,” Wolfe said. “No one respects us.”
Wolfe’s frustration is derived from his defense’s drop off from last season. In 2016, Denver’s D allowed 297 points all season and were the NFL’s best defense on a per-play basis. Through nine games this season, the Broncos have allowed 239 points — 26.6 points per game, 8 points more than last year’s effort.
The Patriots matched their own AFC record with their 12th consecutive road victory, and Tom Brady broke a tie with Peyton Manning for the most regular-season road wins all-time, at 86. The Broncos remain the only team in the NFL that Brady has a losing record against, 8-9, and he won for just the fourth time in 11 games in Denver.
Yes, it’s a tough Monday morning for Broncos players. But, hey, at least they didn’t get drilled in the face with a football. Small victories.
