The Denver Broncos' season is going from bad to worse no matter which quarterback they have under center, as they have now lost their sixth game in the row, the second-worst losing streak in the NFL behind the Cleveland Browns.
Long gone are the days where under the leadership of Peyton Manning, the Broncos would easily make the postseason, as the team looks set to miss out on the playoffs for the second season in a row following a 20-17 defeat on Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Brock Osweiler simply could get anything going for Denver's offense, as he only managed to complete 23 of his 42 passing attempts for 254 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Denver's defense struggled once more to keep an opposing offense at bay as well.
It's been a season to forget for the Broncos, but they still have six more games to play before they can forget about it completely and move on. During Sunday's game though against Cincinnati, it appeared Osweiler had already had enough of the 2017 season.
Prior to a play on Sunday, the Broncos quarterback frustratingly shouted at his offense, “No, God dammit, no!” Some believe this is an audible, while others believe he's simply letting out his anger. Judge for yourself what it might have been by watching the video of the presnap below.
Osweiler would end up throwing a wild incompletion whilst avoiding a sack upon taking the snap, so if he wasn't frustrated before the play, he was probably frustrated afterward.
It's still possible for the Broncos to make the playoffs this season, but they face a very tough uphill battle and they would have to realistically win all their games for the rest of the season as well as have a couple of results in other games go their way too.
Denver will be hoping to snap their six-game losing streak when they travel to Oakland next week to play against their AFC West rivals in the Raiders, another team in their conference that has surprisingly been struggling to win games this season.
If Osweiler fails to win this game, you might hear him say “No, God dammit, no!” a lot more often.
