Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos earned a hard-fought victory over the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.
Coming into the outing nobody gave Wilson and Co. much of a chance. They were 3-5 heading into the game, whereas Buffalo was 5-4. Record-wise there wasn’t much of a difference between the two squads, obviously, but in terms of perception there definitely was.
The Bills have been a perennial Super Bowl contender for the last couple of years, while the Broncos have been consistently regarded one of the league’s most embarrassing groups ever since Wilson arrived.
Denver pulling out a 24-22 win caught many off guard. But was the win legit?
Online sleuths took to social media in the aftermath of the game to insinuate that the Broncos blatantly cheated in this one:

Noticed that too, wondered if that was allowed.

Time will tell if the NFL chooses to investigate this matter. Given their track record of looking into their own referees blatantly cheating, though – the smart money seems to be on ‘no.’
Literally just one week ago NFL referees openly mocked a player to his face and nobody at the league office batted an eye.
It seems unrealistic to expect anything different in this case.
In a kooky NFL weekend where Jared Goff’s fiancée stole the show with her provocative outfit to his game and Pam Oliver apparently had some sort of medical emergency during a game, nobody expected an otherwise bland Monday Night Football showdown to cause so much hubbub.

But here we are.
Did Wilson and the Broncos actually blatantly cheat against the Bills or is this just some sort of big misunderstanding? An answer one way or the other will hopefully emerge soon enough.
