The Denver Broncos are fresh off of their bye week.
They will face the AFC South leading Tennessee Titans this Sunday.
Their time off did not prevent quite the embarrassing story from getting onto social media today, though.
During their win against the Jacksonville Jaguars two weeks ago, the Broncos’ special teams unit was called for a delay of game.
Now, we know why, according to Zac Stevens.
Dwayne Stukes said a Broncos player was eating a hot dog on the sideline during the Jags game and that’s why the special teams got a delay of game on kickoff.
Stukes is the Broncos’ special teams coordinator.
Fortunately for the Broncos and their fans, Stukes later clarified his comment was “tongue in cheek.” Based on his body language, it seemed like he may have been serious, though.
Either way, we have no known record of Stukes lying in a public sphere. So, simply out of respect, it’s best to take the man at his word.

Regardless, the Broncos have to be better in every facet of the game going forward.
Getting a win versus the Jags before the bye week was a start, but they have a long road ahead of them.
Sliding back into playoff contention will be a difficult task after the early hole they put themselves in this season.
