After a crazy at the gun win over the Chargers, here is the stock report for the Denver Broncos.
My goodness. Talk about getting a win at the very last second. In fact, there was no time left on the clock. Helped out by a defensive pass interference call in the end zone with one second left on fourth down, Drew Lock and K.J. Hamler connected on a one-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at the triple zero mark. Brandon McManus’ extra point gave the team the one-point win.
Not a bad way to get your first touchdown in the NFL. The win set the team up nicely to potentially get to even at .500 at the halfway point in the season. It appeared as if the offense is starting to gel. We will know more in the coming weeks.
But with that said, let us take a look at who’s stock has gone up and gone down this week.
Playing this season on the franchise tag, this is the year that Justin Simmons needed to step up. A lot of fans have not been pleased with his performance so far, but he stepped it up on Sunday.
The star safety recorded his second interception of the season. His first since Week 2 against the Steelers. And he was able to get it early as he picked off Justin Herbert’s first pass of the game. It would lead to three points and got the Broncos started for a bit.
The hope is that Simmons will continue to get some interceptions to boost his value. But it was nice to see him have an early impact on the game,
