WATCH: Broncos WR KJ Hamler melts down after loss to Colts originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
The Thursday Night Football broadcast captured the third-year wide receiver slamming his helmet into the ground and yelling in frustration following the 12-9 loss.
All it takes is a look back at the final play to understand why Hamler was so upset.
Wilson had Hamler wide open for a potential game-winning touchdown, but the quarterback never looked his way.

Hamler could have walked into the end zone untouched, and he even said as much to NFL Network's James Palmer.
#broncos WR K.J. Hamler to me on the final play of the game. âI could have walked in.â

Hamler finished with one reception for 10 yards on two targets as Denver's offense had yet another ugly outing.
The Broncos punted five times and committed two turnovers (both Wilson interceptions) as they put up just three field goals during the nearly 33 minutes they possessed the ball. It marked the fourth time in the first five games that Denver scored one or fewer offensive touchdowns.
And all of this after the Broncos traded four combined first- and second-round picks to the Seattle Seahawks for Wilson, and then gave the 33-year-old signal caller a $245 million contract with $165 million guaranteed.
