Bronco Awards: Week 6

The Broncos are on fire!! After an incredible battle between two divisional rivals on Monday, Denver came away with the HUGE win over the San Diego Chargerettes led by Flipper.

In that big win for the Mile High team, one person stood out (and it wasn't because of his socks).

Eddie Royal made history Monday Night as he became the 11th person in NFL history to take a kick0ff and punt return back for touchdowns.

The kick return came in the first quarter when Royal was the man waiting for the ball to drop. When it did, he had some great blocks by his teammates that allowed him to go 93 yards for one of the best touchdowns I've ever seen.

Later on in the second quarter, Royal couldn't seem to get enough of the action when he took a punt return 71 yards in for a beautiful TD. This young man was built for speed and man was it awesome to watch.

His two returns also set a couple of franchise records as well. His 235 total return yards set a franchise record. He also became just the 2nd Bronco player to record a kickoff return and punt return in the same game.

And while those were the only "catches" he made during the whole game, I won't complain because not only did the Ed man fool the SD special teams once, he did it twice. So because of his two incredible runs and TDs, he was awarded the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for week 6.

Congrats to #19 for a spectacular game!! This honor was well-earned and so is this week off for the whole team.

Oh and if any of you feel like reliving some of the good memories here are some highlights from the game.
