Broncos Win Streak Sparks Controversy Over Dobbs’ Fumble And Jackson’s Hit
The Broncos have secured four consecutive victories, firmly positioning themselves in the AFC playoff race. In their latest triumph on Sunday night, a comeback win against the Vikings with a late touchdown pass from Russell Wilson, controversy emerged.
On the first drive of the game, Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs fumbled the ball, leading to a recovery by the Denver defense. Following the loss, Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell voiced his belief that Broncos safety Kareem Jackson should have been penalized for the hit that caused the turnover.
Jackson, returning from a two-game suspension for similar hits, appeared to lower his head and lead with the crown of his helmet into Dobbs’ chest. O’Connell expressed his concerns, stating, “At the moment, coming from the second level the way he did, it seemed like a pretty direct helmet-to-helmet type hit.”
Dobbs underwent evaluation in the medical tent but was cleared to continue playing. Postgame, he mentioned feeling fine and acknowledged the need to take better care of the football in the future. Following the turnover, the Broncos added three points with a 31-yard field goal from Will Lutz.
Kareem Jackson has faced scrutiny for questionable hits, accumulating four fines and two ejections this season, in addition to his recent suspension. Consequently, any borderline hit involving him is likely to be closely scrutinized.
