Every New York Jets fan pretty much feels like cornerback Pierre Desir this morning, face-down on the ground, as the first round talent that the Jets passed on stole a jump ball straight out of the defensive back's hands for a deep touchdown early on in the Jets fourth straight defeat.
That first round wide receiver is of course, Jerry Jeudy, of the Denver Broncos. Here's his first career touchdown in action in case you missed it.
Yep, Jeudy straight up mossed him. Not only should this have been intercepted, it's almost a miracle that the ball ended up in the wide receiver's hands. On the slow-motion video you can see it go right off Desir's gloves and then his helmet before Jeudy muscles it away with a disrespectful backwards walk into the end zone.
That was just the cherry on top for Broncos fans, who saw their third-string quarterback Brett Rypien pick on Desir all night long. Sure, the Jets had three interceptions by the end of the game, and Desir himself had two, but the number of blown coverages and catches allowed by the Jets' secondary was far from ideal.
This one in particular had a catch probability under 30 percent, according to the broadcast's Statcast, but Jeudy makes it look easy on primetime as he dances his way to a 10-7 lead.
This game ended up being close, but the Jets never truly recovered from this early gut punch. For Denver, however, it was a slight glimmer of hope in an otherwise injury-ravaged season.
