The Broncos benched their starters and lost ugly in Buffalo. In a 42-15 victory over the Broncos, the Bills piled up 510 yards of offense on their first six possessions while starting quarterback Josh Allen got some playing time.

While it was mostly his bench players, new Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett was not pleased.

Hackett, as quoted by Mike Klis of 9News, said, “The first thing I would tell the fans is I’m sorry for that game two days ago because that is not what we’re looking for.” But, you know, I think by Week 17, the fans will have a better grasp of what we’re doing. That includes Courtland (Sutton) and Jerry (Jeudy), among the rest of those dudes. We’re eager to see them in action in actual games.

However, the Bills running backs’ four walk-in touchdowns were particularly embarrassing for the Broncos near the goal line.

When it comes to physicality, “in the end, that’s not what we want to be about,” Hackett said. “Everywhere you look. I believe that everyone is capable of being more physically active; however, it appeared that these individuals were focusing excessively on mental rather than actual tasks.
