So after Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall caught the game-winning touchdown pass last in the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s 34-30 victory, he pulled something out of his pants. (It looked like a glove, or something.)
Teammate Brandon Stokley and other Broncos immediately surrounded Marshall, and apparently persuaded him not to do whatever it was that he planned to do.
It was a wise move. If Marshall had used a prop to celebrate, the Broncos would have been kicking off from their own 15, giving Cleveland better field position for their final drive.
We’re trying to find out what Marshall was up to. Though Bob Papa and Cris Collinsworth did a solid job of calling the game, they flat-out missed this one.
Our best guess at this point is that it was a rubber glove, and that Marshall was planning some type of staph infection spoof.
UPDATE: We’ve found exclusive video of the incident.
