It’s safe to say, barring a second half completely opposite of the first, this game will not go down in NFL record books as an offensive smorgasbord. The Colts amassed a paltry 144 yards and the Broncos were even worse, racking up 104 yards.
The NFL world was quick to react to another boring rendition of weekday football presented by Amazon:
Name two things more boring than the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts.

“This Thursday football game is super boring tonight. How bad are the Broncos and Colts? The announcers seem super tired too, dang,” wrote another fan.
One user, however, was quick to note that next week’s forecast for entertaining football doesn’t look promising.

Hopefully for fans and bettors the offenses get going in the second half.
