Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett regretted it.
“Looking back, we absolutely should have gone for it,” he discussed the decision to lose 17-16 to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday The game ended with a 64-yard shot instead of 4 and 5 told reporters.
Denver may have been the better team in Monday’s game, but the chaos at the end of the game was an apt metaphor for how it unfolded.
The AL West simply can’t get out of their way, with both Melvin Gordon III and Javinta Williams At the 1-yard line in the second half from Seattle. It feels like a huge improvement to settle for a shot after a false start that helps destroy another goal on the next possession.
Still, the Broncos had a chance to win in the final minutes. The game also threw for 340 yards, and he led the visitors to the Seahawks’ 46-yard line with about a minute left. They hit all 3 timeouts in the 4th and 5th and got a golden chance to move the ball and eventually win with a shorter field goal.
Instead, the offense kept huddling and taking time as the game and game clock ticked. The Broncos then had to suspend the game to avoid a late game penalty and help resolve some of the confusion. Hackett decided to kick kicker Brandon McManus for a 64-yard field goal after returning to the field.
He missed, and Wilson lost on the return trip from Seattle. Wilson told reporters he had no problem playing after the game, but Hackett wanted him to play Once again consider the opportunity to make another decision.
