    Broncos player blows TD with premature celebration | For The Win

    Danny Trevathan, a second-year Denver Broncos linebacker from Kentucky, intercepted a Joe Flacco pass late in his team’s season opener against the Baltimore Ravens and had nothing but clear sailing to the end zone. He picked off the ball at the 30, was free at the 20 and had the rest of the Ravens behind him at the 10. Trevathan’s first NFL touchdown was easy as any and would have put Denver up 49-17 on the defending Super Bowl champions.

    But before crossing into the end zone, Trevathan opted for the hot-dog route and dropped the ball like he was Kanye dropping a mic, as if scoring his first NFL touchdown was no big deal. It wasn’t, because he didn’t.

    Since Trevathan dropped the ball before crossing the plane , there was no touchdown. And because no one recovered the ball in the field of play, Baltimore got possession back on its own 20-yard line.

    That was so embarrassing. He's lucky it was already a blowout or he'd be warming the bench for a while. Hell he still might.

    I am sure at the film review of the game the coach will mention that and make him run extra laps.
