A juvenile title to a juvenile mistake for a team being crushed by Peyton Manning and Co.

On a play where quarterback Derek Carr was under duress, he flipped it out to a "receiver". Unfortunately, the receiver was actually one of his linemen, thus causing an illegal touching penalty (ineligible receiver). However, the lineman, Khalif Barnes, tried to advance the ball and instead fumbled it. When the Denver Broncos recovered it, they obviously declined the penalty and took the ball, scoring easily with Peyton Manning on a roll.
