The Denver Broncos attempted a game-winning field goal in a rather unique way during Monday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills, kneeling the ball to get the clock rolling, then running the field goal team onto the field for an apparent last second-field goal. It looked rather chaotic, but head coach Sean Payton doesn’t agree with that assessment.

The Broncos ultimately missed the kick, leading some to question the decision, but Sean Payton defended the move during his postgame press conference.

“It’s not chaotic,” Payton said during his postgame press conference. “It’s not chaotic. It’s really not. They had 12 guys on the field, but we do it all the time. Sometimes when you’re doing that, as opposed to coming out of a huddle thinking about it, it’s a little bit easier. It’s not really that difficult.”

As Payton alluded, the Broncos did get another chance at the field goal as the Bills were flagged for illegal substitution with too many men on the field. But Payton doesn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with the decision to run the field goal the way they did. In fact, his only issue is the word used to call the play.

“My biggest challenge is the special teams coaches calling it ‘Hurricane,’” Payton said. “I’m used to calling it ‘Mayday’ for 20-some years, so I’ll yell ‘Mayday’ initially, and then get it right. They executed it well.”

Obviously, the Broncos got another chance at the kick and were able to notch the victory over the Bills.
