Ronnie Hillman fumbles a lot, but he’s got company

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Yes, Ronnie Hillman did look pretty good on Sunday.

It's great that he hit the 100-yard mark in his first career start, and that it went a long way to helping Denver win.

But the superlatives of the past 17 or so hours are just a bit much.

There was still that fumble.

That’s how Julius Thomas described today’s game after his second touchdown.

But it really wasn’t. Don’t let the score fool you. The Jets had the ball and were one score away from tying the game with a minute left to play.
