Denver Broncos: Tim Patrick and other stars in win vs. Jets
Tim Patrick and the other stars for the Denver Broncos in a victory over the Jets.
The Denver Broncos have a victory, ladies and gentlemen.
It doesn’t matter that it came at the expense of the hapless New York Jets, it’s a victory, and it was actually quite a fun one from start to finish.
The Broncos have been beaten, battered, bruised, bludgeoned — you pick the adjective (likely starting with the letter ‘b’ apparently) and that’s been the Denver Broncos in 2020.
Losing Von Miller before week one of the season was always going to be tough to overcome, but the list of players the Broncos have had to put on IR or put on the injury report for extended periods of time has been unprecedented, at least for this team.
Heading into their game against the New York Jets, the Broncos were down so many key players, and even more players were injured during the game and didn’t return (Noah Fant, KJ Hamler).
Brett Rypien was making his starting debut in the NFL, and to the surprise of many, he looked really good early on.
Then the fourth quarter happened.
Rypien threw two of his three interceptions late in the game, one of which went back for six points.
Still, the former undrafted free agent made the plays necessary to help the Broncos win this game, but he also had a little help from his friends.
Who were the stars of this game for the Denver Broncos? Let’s take a look.
