Denver Broncos: Stock report after huge Giants win
Though KJ Hamler did not necessarily have a “bad” game, catching 3 of 4 targets for 41 yards and averaging 13.7 yards/reception, he dropped a pass that may haunt him for a while.
In perhaps what would have been Bridgewater’s best passes of the game, Teddy aired out a beautiful deep ball over 50 yards to KJ Hamler, whose extreme speed allowed him to reach the end zone with time to spare to secure the ball.
Unfortunately, KJ’s hands did not keep up with his legs, and he dropped the wide-open pass. It was overall a rough drive for the Denver Broncos, as Jerry Jeudy subsequently suffered a high-ankle sprain and was carted off.
While Denver still handily won the contest, going forward, Hamler must ensure that he makes these easy catches, especially when failing to do so wipes points off of the board.
It is especially important that KJ Hamler becomes more consistent, as he is one who will need to step up in the absence of Jerry Jeudy, who could be out for up to 8 weeks with a high ankle sprain. Hamler has a lot of potential, and with extra pressure now riding on his shoulders, will have a lot to prove.
