KJ Hamler's first career TD catch wins game on the final play
Welcome to the NFL, KJ Hamler.
The former Penn State speedster made the game-winning play in Denver’s wild comeback victory over the Chargers on Sunday night.
With one second left on the clock, quarterback Drew Lock hit Hamler in the corner of the end zone. It was initially ruled incomplete, but ultimately was changed to a touchdown.

That’s a huge win for the Broncos, who were in danger of falling to 2-5 on the season. It’s also a devastating defeat for the Chargers after they built up a 24-3 lead in the second half.
Hamler finished the game with three catches for 10 yards. On the season, the former 2nd round pick now has 11 catches for 112 yards and that game-winning score.
The Broncos play at Atlanta next week.
