For most of Sunday’s game, Drew Lock didn’t get anything going. At halftime, he hadn’t thrown a touchdown pass since Week 1 against Tennessee. It’s overstating things to say the comeback and a three-touchdown second half saved his job in the short and long term. He certainly needed something positive, and came through in a big way.
Drew Lock appeared to use criticism about his recent play as motivation for his team’s second-half rally, in which the Broncos scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a literal last-second game-winning TD.
