The Broncos’ quarterback situation made life difficult for the team’s offense on Sunday, but the Denver’s Twitter account wants to see the temporary signal-caller hold his head high.
Due to all four of the team’s quarterbacks being unable to play because of COVID-19 protocols, undrafted rookie Kendall Hinton was pressed into temporary quarterback duty against the New Orleans Saints. Hinton was originally a college quarterback before becoming a wide receiver, which is also his NFL position.
Unsurprisingly, Hinton struggled mightily. Playing on short notice against one of the NFL’s top defenses, Hinton went just 1-of-9 with his lone completion going for 13 yards. He also threw two interceptions, and the Broncos lost 31-3.
Despite all that, the team’s official Twitter account had nothing but praise for the stand-in quarterback.
