The was a kick in the gut.

The Denver Broncos lost to the Indianapolis Colts 12-9 on Thursday night in overtime, in one of the worst football games you will ever see.

And the thing is, they actually had a chance to win it. After an Indy field goal gave them a three point lead in OT, the Broncos moved the football down the field. Melvin Gordon danced on a nice screen play. Russell Wilson hit Jerry Jeudy for a long gain, and Denver was in the red zone.

But that’s where more problems ensued, and after three straight Gordon runs, Denver faced fourth-and-one. After a timeout by the Colts and a timeout by the Broncos, they came up with this uninspiring play call.

Courtland Sutton was the intended target, but it never had a chance. The Broncos are now 2-3, and there will be plenty of fallout from this one. It’s one of the worst regular season losses in this team’s storied history.

If Broncos Country sells their tickets to Chiefs fans, you can’t blame ’em

Even if fans aren't going to get rich by selling their tickets, no one should hold it against them; maybe Mile High painted in red is what ownership needs to see
