Denver WR KJ Hamler torches entire Carolina defense for 37-yard TD catch
K.J. Hamler got on the board on Sunday, the former Penn State wide receiver putting up six points for the Denver Broncos.
A second round pick, Hamler scored a touchdown on a go-route that gave Denver a 20-7 lead over the Carolina Panthers with 11:05 left in the third quarter. The 37-yard touchdown pass from Drew Lock, came on a lofted ball where Hamler went untouched into the end zone, saw straight speed from the rookie as he simply blew by the Panthers defense.
