Drew Lock had a phenomenal performance in his second career NFL start, capping the day with 309 pass yards, 3 TD’s and a completion percentage of 81.5%. In fact, Drew Lock became the first rookie in NFL history to throw for 300 yards and 3 TD’s in their first start on the road.
Lock also joined pretty good company in becoming the third QB in franchise history to throw for 300 yards as a rookie, joining current GM and President of Football Operations John Elway, and Tim Tebow, still a fan-favorite of much of Broncos Country. Lock also was able to put together another huge achievement- he threw for 235 yards in the first half, the most by a Broncos QB since Peyton Manning in 2014.
Lock was able to put together some fantastic offensive drives, and really made some beautiful passes and feels quite comfortable threading the needle, though he did throw one interception on the day. Lock is confident and does not buckle under pressure, something the Broncos have been searching for since Peyton Manning.
While the whispers have already began that John Elway has finally found his guy, and we sure hope so, it is too early to tell. However, the kid is off to a fantastic start, and for the first time in a while, Denver Broncos football felt fun again.
