Broncos new kicker hits 5/5 field goals in his first game with Denver
The Broncos made the switch at kicker earlier in the week, waiving Brandon McManus and signing Connor Barth. Barth arrived on Tuesday and kicked a career-best five field goals in the game.
After the game punter Britton Colquitt, a borrowed microphone in hand from one of the Denver television stations, took a spin as a reporter, asking Barth several questions in front of his locker. After teasing Barth about the wind at Arrowhead, Colquitt asked:
“Seriously, though, a career high in field goals, 5-for-5, how do you feel about that?” And Barth responded “Whatever I can do to help the team, it was exciting.” Colquitt, the holder on field goal attempts, then asked; “What is it like to know all you’ve really got to do is close your eyes and swing your leg?” Barth then gave some props to Colquitt and long-snapper Aaron Brewer. Barth was the fourth kicker in franchise history to have five field goals in a game.
Pretty awesome, especially when he was laying in the pool last week according to Peyton Manning.
