The Denver Broncos have decided to start rookie second round pick Drew Lock against the Los Angeles Chargers. So far so good in his first NFL start.
Broncos Country did not find out until late last night that the Denver Broncos were going to start Drew Lock for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. So far in their 12th game of the 2019 season, it has looked really good.
Lock is the third quarterback to start for the Denver Broncos this season. It brought back memories of the 2017 season where the Broncos also had three starting quarterbacks. For some reason though, the Broncos Country fans are really excited to see what they have in the quarterback from Missouri.
He has so far lived up and done well in his first start. He has two touchdown passes to Courtland Sutton. His first touchdown was a Pro Bowl caliber catch as Sutton was able to control it with one hand and keep it from touching the ground.
The defense has looked great as well. Dre'Mont Jones was able to record his first NFL interception. Special teams also was able to get in on the turnover party as a muffed punt lead the Broncos to a recovery. Denver has so far recorded ten points off of two Chargers turnovers.
The only real mistake that the Denver Broncos have made was on a roughing the punter penalty on Devontae Booker. That would end up leading to three points for the Chargers. They also allowed a long reception to Mike Williams and a touchdown reception to Austin Ekeler.
As long as Denver can keep their foot on the gas pedal, they should be able to secure a win. But we know what happened in Minnesota when the Denver Broncos had a huge lead.
Drew Lock has looked solid so far, but let us hope that he can continue on towards a potential fourth win for the Denver Broncos. The Los Angeles Chargers will get the ball to start the second half. Here is hoping. Let's go Broncos!
