Just when you think this Denver Broncos season has hit rock bottom, they keep on digging.
After Denver was plastered 51-14 by a Rams team without Aaron Donald, Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp, Broncos defensive end Randy Gregory got into it with Los Angeles offensive lineman Oday Aboushi, seen on video throwing a punch at the guard in the postgame handshakes.
In a video of the incident, Gregory is seen arguing with Aboushi, before he gets in his face and appears to throw a punch at his head. Aboushi immediately retaliates and hits back at Gregory, before teammates step in and intervene. Gregory then follows Aboushi and continues to jaw at him.
As he walked away, Aboushi ended up crossing over CBS Sports’ Tracy Wolfson’s postgame interview with Baker Mayfield, who started and won the game for the Rams.
“Watch out, watch out,” Mayfield says as Gregory and Aboushi cross into the shot, trying to shield Wolfson from the scrap.
“Got some feistiness between two teams,” Wolfson responded.
The Broncos dropped to 4-11 after the embarrassing loss in Los Angeles, in a season that has been full of them. This game was a particular debacle, as their top-five defense has kept them in a lot of games throughout the season. On Sunday, however, they allowed 51 points to an injury-ravaged Rams team that entered the game 27th in offensive DVOA. Cam Akers ran for 118 yards and three touchdowns in the game.
Gregory, 30, joined the Broncos on a five-year deal after a strong 2021 season with the Cowboys. He actually originally agreed to a deal to return to Dallas, but ended up joining Denver instead after a disagreement over his contract language.
He has two sacks on the season, having been out with a knee injury from Weeks 5-15. Sunday was his second game back.
