Good news for Broncos fans: Denver didn't lose yesterday.
Bad news for Broncos fans: Denver didn't win yesterday.
Worse news for Broncos fans: Denver didn't play yesterday, because the team had a bye week. Trevor Siemian and company won't hit the gridiron again until Sunday night, November 27, versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
With no Broncos game to plan around, fans were left with an unexpected amount of free time on their hands — and a trip to Twitter reveals how they spent it.
Some folks found themselves in a confused daze, while others enjoyed the lack of anxiety. There was also drinking, catching up on chores and, in one case, making a killing.
