DENVER -- Usually the Denver Broncos are handing out victories to the good people of Denver.
Tuesday, they handed out something a little more important than a win. They helped deliver Thanksgiving dinner. "Being able to give back to the people who evidently need it. It's refreshing for us so we're off for the day, and we're out here," Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib said.
Thanks to the Denver Rescue Mission more than 2,500 turkeys and food boxes will be given to pre-registered families in need.
And, it's kind of cool to have a Denver Broncos player give it to you. "It's good to see them out here giving back to the community, so it's good," one recipient of a turkey dinner said.
Meanwhile, at the Salvation Army Harbor Light Center, more Broncos were prep-cooking for the Salvation Army's big dinner. "I have a heart for the homeless people so anything I can do to help, anything I can do to give back to my community. It makes me feel good inside," linebacker Brandon Marshall said.
From the griddle to the gridiron, the Denver Broncos proved they're just as comfortable in the kitchen as they are in a kickoff.
