Now that Denver Broncos played a game  with no starting or backup Quarterbacks, were they wrong or no?

Week 12 of the NFL season will certainly be remembered as the week when the pandemic was bad enough that a team took the field without an actual quarterback at starting quarterback. (It faced another team not starting a quarterback, but that one was on purpose.) After a COVID-19 protocol violation disqualified every one of their quarterbacks, the Denver Broncos called up wide receiver Kendall Hinton from the practice squad, gave him the playbook and wished him well against the New Orleans Saints. Guys, what were you expecting out of that game

    Maybe it'll start a trend like we have in baseball where we have no starting pitchers. Teams will save $30 million in contracts for so-called franchise qbs and spend it on better o-lines.

    No, that wasn't wrong. It was the only choice they had. Hinton was at least a QB in college at Wake forest before beconing a WR. The emergency QB is Royce Freeman, a running back. He had only thrown one pass in college and none as a pro. The game went about as expected.

    It shows the double standards of the NFL.  Why not reschedule like they have with other teams?  Just shows how little the NFL thinks about the Broncs.  They might have had a hard time beating New Orleans anyway, but come on!

    The stupid morons in the NFL will protest to display their hatred for the flag but they won't protest to protect their health.  These brain-dead imbeciles should never have played this game.

    Denver had no choice.  They had a few positive coronavirus cases, but they weren't numerous enough to postpone the game like they have with Ravens/Steelers, which is due to a mass outbreak on the Ravens. The NFL didn't fear the Broncos spreading the virus to the Saints, hence they played as scheduled. The fact that all the QBs violated coronavirus protocol?! Their own fault. Follow the protocol next time.
