Trip to a trap. The Denver Post’s sports cover on Monday, Sept. 25, 2017.

Buffalo-oh no! The perfect season is no more after the Broncos, felled by penalties and turnovers, lost to the Bills 26-16 at Orchard Park, N.Y.

Despite the setback, there were bright spots. Running back Jamaal Charles scored his first touchdown as a Bronco, linebacker Von Miller moved within two sacks of Karl Mecklenburg on the team’s all-time list, and Garett Bolles–after being carted off the field with a left leg injury last week against the Cowboys—started.

Something bigger than football also started on Sunday: A drastic increase of players kneeling or sitting during the national anthem. The number rose from four in Week 2 to over 200 after Sunday’s games. Team-by-team breakdown. Photos from across the league.

Team captains Von Miller and Demaryius Thomas were among 32 Broncos players who knelt as a direct response to President Donald Trump’s comments on Friday calling out NFL players who protested during the anthem.

Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla: “Trump picked a fight with NFL players, and it only steeled the Broncos’ resolve to protest.”
