Nikola Jokic is the best passer in Denver. Regardless of sport.

That was especially true on Sunday when the Denver Broncos were down to zero quarterbacks due to COVID-19. So, the Broncos made a request (jokingly).

Sunday was a rough day for the Broncos, who got their doors blown off by the Saints (without Drew Brees). It was a reminder of just how hard it is to play quarterback in the NFL — Kendall Hinton played in 22 games as a QB at Wake Forest in the ACC and was totally overwhelmed in an NFL pocket.

No sure Jokic would have helped, but it made for some Twitter fun anyway.
