Better team won. Broncos aren't that good, and never will be, as long as Vance Joseph is the coach. How the hell did Keenum miss that wide open receiver at the end? Blah!!!

Good luck rest of season, guys.

This was a remarkable play.

At the same time, I wonder if QB's shouldn't practice throwing left-handed. Maybe they do. It seems like it would be a useful skill to have in your back pocket in an emergency situation (not unlike the one that Mahomes was in). You don't have to be able to zip the ball 80 mph, but a professional QB should be able to deliver a ball cleanly and fairly accurately to an outlet receiver or back with their left-hand. If nothing else, a clean throw from your left-hand could be enough to avoid a sack or intentional grounding.

I think they sort of do but not actual throws. I'm talking about a pitch on an option or something. It just seems to me that even if you are right handed, as you are moving to your left it is only natural to pitch the ball with your left hand. At least that is what I feel would be natural and what I think most QBs do. While that pitch normally isn't 10-15 yards, they still have some practice with that type of throw.

Forget 99% of what I just said. I just watched the video again and that was an actual throw and not even close to a pitch. Not even close to the same thing.
