Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Lock’s final numbers were pretty good, but his slow start was a factor in Denver’s early struggles and his fourth-quarter interception hurt the team’s comeback effort.
After a 34-27 defeat, Lock was willing to accept blame.
“I think every great quarterback at some point just comes to realization that, with you all [media] and everybody else, they are 100 percent going to take the blame and then they are going to go in and talk to the guys that feel like they could have played a little better or done this or done that,” Lock said.
“Quite honestly, I’m way more than willing to take the blame every single Sunday. I should, I’m the guy who has the ball in his hand every play. We get a drop, so what? I’m going to find a way for us to get to next first down on the next play. I think I’m good enough to that and I always have, and I always will.”
Lock finished the game 25-of-48 for 313 yards with two touchdown passes. He also rushed seven times for 47 yards and a score. Up next for Denver is a road game against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 10.
