    DENVER Chris Johnson said he was trying to make a play, but with the Titans trailing 37-28 in the fourth quarter, disaster struck.

    After catching a pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick, Johnson reversed field. He had the ball knocked out of his hands, however. The Broncos recovered at the Tennessee 32 and cashed it in for a touchdown.

    “I was pretty boxed in, but me being the type of player I am, I never give up on a play,” Johnson said. “I was trying to make something happen, and there have been times in the past where I’ve made that play.

    “But he got lucky and hit the ball and it came out. I would love to have the fumble back, but I’ll never fall down and give up on a play.”

    "He got lucky".... yeah that pretty much sums up exactly what's wrong with this team. That freaking 'pass the buck' mentality. It's never anyone's fault. The other guy "just got lucky". F this loser @$$ team.

    Also, LMFAO @ CJ saying he never gives up on a play. That's the hardest I've laughed since Louis CK's last special.

    CJ is full of sh*t, of course he's gonna say something like that instead of just saying "Welp, we f*cked up!" and do a munchak shrug. At least then I could respect his reaction.

    completely agree with SawdustMan with the 'pass the buck' mentality here. This team needs a new mentality going forward and players need to start being held accountable for their play. Same thing with our secondary blaming the refs, and now CJ saying the player got lucky. Change needs to happen quickly!

    And considering CJ half-azzed it in trying to recover his own fumble.

    Still not as bad as that fumble where the opposing team fumbled, our LB picked it up, and basically lateraled it back to the opposing team.
