Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock had a great second start. The rookie has been named the AFC’s offensive rookie of the week in week 14.
The Denver Broncos have gotten fantastic results from rookie quarterback Drew Lock so far and he has been rewarded for his efforts in the team’s victory against the Houston Texans in week 14.
The second-round pick completed 22-of-27 passes (81.5 percent) of his passes for 309 yards. The rookie threw three touchdown passes as well as one interception against the Texans.
For his career, Lock has completed 72.7 percent of his passes. He has thrown for 443 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. He has a quarterback rating of 111.4, including his rating of 136 against the Texans.
It was a very convincing win against the Texans on Sunday. It seemed like it was basically over by halftime, even though being up by fourteen points (17-3) isn’t exactly a blowout.
Lock’s go-to receiver seems to be fellow rookie, tight end Noah Fant. Fant caught four passes for a total of 114 yards.
There looks to be a lot of promise with Drew Lock so far in his young career. It seems like he is the perfect fit for the offense Rich Scangarello is running. The offense requires a mobile quarterback and the switch from Joe Flacco to Brandon Allen wasn’t exactly a game changer. The switch from Allen to Lock was.
Lock is a baller. It would not surprise me if he earns another AFC Offensive Rookie of the Week award before the season comes to an end. Next up, Lock returns home to Missouri to face his childhood team, the Kansas City Chiefs.
