However, Beth Mowins, Rex Ryan and Dipp called the second game. When reporting from the sideline in the first quarter, Dipp stumbled over his words while giving an update on Bronco's coach Vance Joseph. Dipp then said the line "He's having the time of his LIFE!" After the incident, Dipp ended up trending on Twitter and did not appear on air again during the game, but gave off-air reports on injuries and updates from the sidelines.
