Broncos rookie QB Drew Lock wins NFL debut, realizes that rules are different than college

The Denver Broncos have had a difficult season under rookie head coach Vic Fangio, but saw a beacon on light on Sunday with the debut of rookie quarterback Drew Lock.

But even in victory, Lock showed that he’s not quite caught up to the changes of playing in the NFL.

Lock, a second-round pick out of Missouri, started the season on injured reserve with a thumb injury. By the time he recovered, the Broncos had fallen well out of the playoff race and moved away from Week 1 starter Joe Flacco, who landed on injured reserve with a neck injury.
