Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan found himself in that “wanna get away” moment we all have nightmares about being in on Thursday night.
On their first drive of the fourth quarter, the Baltimore Ravens had fourth-and-1 from their own 29, and quarterback Joe Flacco threw a quick pass toward running back Ray Rice. Trevathan jumped the route for an interception and had a clear path to the end zone. But then, disaster struck, and Trevathan’s once-in-a-lifetime dream turned into a nightmare.
He dropped the ball without provocation before it crossed the plane of the end zone, and the ball eventually rolled out of the end zone for a touchback. The Ravens then drove 80 yards for a touchdown.
