Things have somehow gone from bad to worse for the Denver Broncos as they suffered one of the worst losses in NFL history in Week 3.
The Broncos were shellacked by the Miami Dolphins to the tune of 70-20, a 50-point loss that would make any fan do a double-take in case they thought it was a typo.
Denver had no answers for Miami’s offense as the latter poured it on during every drive.
Sean Payton has been trying to get the most out of his players, but the entire team looked like it quit when it was apparent that they weren’t going to be able to catch up.
Although the Dolphins have one of the most exciting scoring units in the league, it doesn’t excuse the Broncos’ effort defensively.
Payton looked visibly frustrated after the loss and he got caught in a heated exchange with a reporter via Henry McKenna of FOX.
“What’s the question? What’s the question? I just finished telling you. Next question,” Payton said.

Payton doesn’t let the reporter finish asking the question before firing back, a clear sign that he wasn’t really interested in talking about such an embarrassing loss.
It’s hard to blame the Broncos head coach for being so upset, but his response was unprofessional and he should have to apologize for his behavior.
Payton and Denver are now 0-3 and facing the tough reality that they could be once again looking from the outside in when it comes to the playoff picture.
Payton’s first year with the Broncos has been a disaster so far and it’s tough to know when the spiraling will stop.NEXT: Broncos Made NFL History During Loss To Dolphins
