Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock made history as the Broncos dominated the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon.
The Denver Broncos are two glorious games into the Drew Lock era, and the rookie’s first road start against the Houston Texans and star quarterback DeShaun Watson was not expected to go this well.
Lock finished the game completing 22-of-27 passes for 309 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.
Those numbers are certainly numbers to be excited about, especially when you factor in that the Broncos won the game 38-24. They are even more exciting considering Lock’s performance was unlike any other in NFL history.
No, seriously. What he did on Sunday in Houston has never been done before in a rookie quarterback’s road debut.
Von Miller had some select words about Drew Lock after the game.
We were also able to get in a very nice dunk on Patriots QB Tom Brady.
Let’s all enjoy Lock’s three touchdown passes again.
It’s only been two games into Drew Lock’s career with the Denver Broncos, but it’s clear this guy brings something special to the table and it really feels like (and looks like) the Broncos have found their guy for the foreseeable future.
Lock and the Broncos had the rest of the NFL world buzzing with a 31-3 lead at halftime over the Texans, and after going up 38-3 in the third quarter, they coasted into the winner’s circle and gave up a garbage touchdown after the Texans made things somewhat interesting at 38-17.
At this point in time, I don’t think there’s any reason to squash excitement in Broncos Country. When Lock took the reins of the offense, it was expected he may have to struggle to some success, especially after coming back from injured reserve, but he followed up a nice regular season debut against the Chargers with a phenomenal start on the road against a team that’s going to be playing in January.
The future looks bright for Lock, who will get the chance now to go home to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs next week.
