With under 90 seconds to play in the Hall of Fame Game and the Broncos down three to the Falcons, Denver quarterback Brett Rypien was able to connect with receiver Juwann Winfree for the go-ahead touchdown on fourth down in their 14-10 win on Thursday night.
During the game, the former Missouri star quarterback took over for Kevin Hogan in the first half and completed 7-of-11 passes for just 34 yards and took two sacks in the process. Denver ranked 19th in total passing yards (3,695) and hopes to improve upon that mark with the Flacco, the MVP of Super Bowl 47.
The class of 2019 was introduced before the game and walked across the 50-yard line flanked by players from each team. While Lock did have a big play negated on a swing pass that was dropped by David Williams, Lock's play certainly struggled in game one, who may have been a bit hyped for his first National Football League game.
However, he still had many criticisms to make, including the fact that he wanted more out of his second-round rookie quarterback, Drew Lock.
Broncos: Denver third-year LB Joe Jones hurt an arm in the second quarter and did not return.
Broncos: at Seattle on Thursday night.
