Broncos rookie Damarri Mathis flagged 4 times for pass interference amid historic Denver penalty total

Oct 18, 2022

Damarri Mathis got off to a rough start on Monday night. Things got worse from there on a historically bad night of penalties for the Denver Broncos.

The rookie Broncos cornerback filled in for injured starter Ronald Darby and was flagged for pass interference on the first play from scrimmage against the Chargers, setting up Los Angeles with a 30-yard gain into Denver territory. When his night was done, he'd been flagged four times for pass interference in one of the most heavily penalized games in Broncos history as the Chargers secured a 19-16 overtime win.

Mathis' first penalty was on a deep pass from Justin Herbert to Josh Palmer. It ultimately didn't cost the Broncos anything but field position as the Chargers' drive stalled out and ended with a punt. His next three kept alive Chargers' scoring drives.
