DENVER (AP)

Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan began his touchdown celebration a little too prematurely after an interception, dropping the ball before he crossed the goal line Thursday night in the opener against Baltimore.

Trevathan picked off Joe Flacco's pass early in the fourth quarter and had clear sailing to the end zone. A few yards short, he began his celebration and dropped the ball. His teammates tried to recover it, but the ball scooted out of bounds, resulting in a touchback and giving it right back to the Ravens.

At least the Broncos were up, 42-17, at the time.

Trevathan, a third-year player out of Kentucky, protested at first but watched the replay on the big screen. He bent down and put his hands on his helmet in disgust.
