Courtland Sutton earned this week’s Shane Co. “Gem of the Week” for his second-quarter touchdown against the Raiders.
The five-yard reception came on a broken play, as Russell Wilson scrambled to his right and found the wide receiver in the back of the end zone. The play happened with just 12 seconds to go in the first half, putting the Broncos ahead 13-10 heading into the locker room.
Here’s how the play looked and sounded on Sunday:
