Javonte Williams catches a screen pass and gets blown up on 1st & 10

On what was the biggest play in the two-minute drill, the Broncos go backward on what could have been a huge gain. Hackett calls an HB screen on 1st & 10 to see if the offense can pick up some easy yards once again. The offense had a lot of success earlier in the game with multiple screenplays as well.

As soon as Williams catches the ball, he immediately gets tackled by Cody Barton. When showing the replay, the audience can see the potential the play had if Barton was blocked.

If Graham Glasgow can get a hand on Barton, Williams would have put the offense in field goal range and more. The next closest defender to make a tackle is 20 yards away and Williams has Lloyd Cushenberry to block for him too.

This play has not been talked about enough as being a game changer. If this went to plan, we all would be having a different conversation about the game and Hackett’s decision-making.
