VIDEO: Eric Decker's 52-Yard TD Pass Named Top-Five Worst Play--For Bengals

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker became the go-to wide receiver for Kyle Orton as a result of injuries to Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal. Against the Bengals, Decker came up with five catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns.

That second touchdown was a 52-yard grab that probably shouldn't have been a score. Decker defeated Nate Clements in coverage, but the Bengals could have stopped Decker if safety Chris Crocker hadn't collided with Clements on the play. As a result, Decker went unimpeded into the end zone.

As a result, it has been named the No. 5 worst play of the week in SB Nation's Best and Worst Plays in the NFL. Check out the video after the jump.


Decker could have easily been tackled to prevent a touchdown, but I don't think the game would have hinged on that play as Jason Garrison believes. The Broncos would still have had a new set of downs to put the ball into the end zone. Faulty thinking that the Bengals' next score was predetermined to happen.
