ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- As promised, Danny Trevathan has snuffed the showboat in him after his humiliating gaffe in the NFL opener.
He morphed into a standout linebacker in his second season and led the Broncos in tackles after his inauspicious debut in Denver's rout of the Ravens in September.
Trevathan blamed excitement over his first career start for his premature celebration of a sure pick-6 of Joe Flacco when he flipped the football aside just before crossing the goal line.
That decision left teammate Wesley Woodyard with an ankle injury and made Brandon Stokley the new Don Beebe. On the other hand, if Trevathan doesn't pull a Leon Lett, maybe Peyton Manning takes the rest of the night off and doesn't get a chance to make history with his seventh touchdown throw later on in Denver's 49-27 win.
