DENVER (AP) Aqib Talib is bummed out, although not nearly as much as Eli Manning.

Like so many football fans, the star Denver Broncos cornerback was eager for his marquee matchup with Odell Beckham Jr. before the Giants star receiver broke his left ankle against the Chargers last week.

“I love going against the best, and just to see him go out like that is just ugly,” Talib said. “I don’t even like to think about it. I definitely was looking forward to the matchup. Maybe next year.”
