Week 10 came to a thrilling conclusion as the Denver Broncos secured a 24-22 victory over the Buffalo Bills on “Monday Night Football.” The game was decided by a 36-yard walk-off field goal from Wil Lutz.
Lutz’s game-winning kick was his second attempt, as he initially missed a 41-yarder that could have sealed the victory. However, the Bills were penalized for having 12 men on the field, giving Lutz another chance to secure the win for the Broncos.
Despite the nail-biting finish, Denver’s starting quarterback, Russell Wilson, never wavered in his belief that his team would emerge victorious. Wilson’s unwavering confidence is reflected in his top quote from Week 10:
Broncos QB Russell Wilson
“Relentless. … We knew that we were going to win this game. … We know who we can be.”
Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill
Known for his incredible speed, Tyreek Hill often celebrates his touchdowns by putting up the peace sign as he outraces defenders to the end zone. However, Odell Beckham Jr. borrowed Hill’s celebration, and Hill made it clear that Beckham should expect consequences for his actions.
“Yeah, they’re fining people for that, buddy.”
San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey
Christian McCaffrey’s impressive streak of scoring a touchdown in 17 consecutive games came to an end in Week 10, tying Lenny Moore’s record for the longest streak in NFL history (from 1963 to ’64). After the 49ers’ dominant 34-3 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, McCaffrey humorously reflected on his performance.
“Yeah, I suck. Everybody else on the team scored, except for me.”
Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb
CeeDee Lamb has been on fire in his past three games, recording at least 10 catches and 150 yards in each. Despite ranking third in overall yardage behind Tyreek Hill and A.J. Brown, Lamb confidently claims the top spot among active wide receivers.
“I’m the top receiver in the game. There’s no question about it.”
49ers OT Trent Williams
Football is a physical game, but it’s usually wise to avoid unnecessary contact. However, Jaguars cornerback Darious Williams, who is significantly smaller than Trent Williams, chose to run away when faced with the 6’5″, 320-pound tackle. Williams shared his thoughts on the unusual play.
“It’s kinda weird ’cause [No.] 31 turned around and ran. I ain’t never seen that.”
New England Patriots QB Bailey Zappe
With less than two minutes remaining and the New England Patriots trailing the Indianapolis Colts by four points, Bailey Zappe entered the game. Unfortunately, his fake-spike play ended in an interception, sealing the Patriots’ defeat. When asked about the play, Zappe chose to censor himself.
“I can’t say what I want to say.”
