Broncos' Brock Osweiler's throw-away ball hits unsuspecting man on the head

The 2017 season has gone from bad to worse for the Denver Broncos, as they've now lost their fifth game in a row following their Week 10 defeat to the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

The Broncos will want to forget this loss very quickly, as the Patriots came away from Sports Authority Field at Mile High last night with a 41-16 win. Denver is now 3-6 on the season and on their way to missing out on the playoffs for the second season in a row.

Quarterback Brock Osweiler didn't have the best of games, as he only managed to complete 18 of his 33 passing attempts for 221 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. One of his misplaced passes on the night though had a hilarious outcome.

During the second quarter of the Patriots-Broncos game, as you can see in the video further down in this article, Osweiler rolled out of the Denver pocket and threw the ball out of bounds so that he wouldn't be sacked by the approaching New England defensive rush.

Unknowingly, in the midst of throwing the ball out of bounds, the Broncos quarterback throw hit an unsuspecting gentleman in the face on the sidelines in what is an absolutely hilarious moment for all except for the man that was hit.

Analysing this situation, the guy on the sidelines should have been more alert that he might be hit by a football or a player coming off the field, as he isn't playing any attention to the game going on mere yards away from him. All the guy next to him did to help him was hold up his play sheet!

Nevertheless, hopefully, the guy is okay and is able to see the funny side of this situation. In any case, he's probably feeling better than the Broncos do this morning after the team suffered their fifth loss in a row last night.

Denver will be hoping Osweiler, or whoever starts at quarterback for them, is able to find more of their own players on the field, rather than people standing on the sideline when they play against the Cincinnati Bengals next Sunday.
