Just like the above photo, Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan has spent most of the day getting torched by Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.

Through four quarters, Tony Romo picked apart the Denver defense to the tune of 500 passing yards, 121 of which were from Witten. But it was Trevathan who made the play that ultimately decided the game.

With under two minutes left in the game, Trevathan dropped back and intercepted a Tony Romo pass intended for backup TE Gavin Escobar.

After the pick, the Broncos were able to run the clock down all the way until there was just enough time for kicker Matt Prater to kick the game-winning field goal, and keep the Broncos undefeated.

 

 

It’s also a bit of remediation for Trevathan, who in the home-opener vs the Baltimore Ravens, intercepted a Joe Flacco pass and took it to the house, but dropped the ball to celebrate just short of the goaline, and what should have been an easy pick-6 was instead ruled a touchback, and the ball went back to the Baltimore Ravens.
