Following an embarrassing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, Emmanuel Sanders voiced his frustration with Denver's offense. He didn't hold back after the team only put up six points against a vulnerable defense.

Nothing went right for the Broncos in Week 7. Joe Flacco struggled to throw the ball down the field all night, and the running game was mostly silent through four quarters.

Sanders managed to finish the game with five receptions for 60 yards. It was a solid performance from a veteran that could be on the trading block.

When talking to the media about what went wrong for the Broncos offense, Sanders said "You know the answer. You watched the same game."

This could be a shot at Flacco, who had his worst outing of the season on Thursday.

Either way, it's pretty clear that tension is growing for Denver.

Prior to this game, NFL insider Benjamin Allbright said that teams were calling about the Broncos to see if Sanders was available for trade. However, any teams calling with interest were told that he's not available right now.

We'll see if the Broncos change their stance after hearing these comments from Sanders. With the team's playoff hopes slipping away, it would make sense to ship out veteran players on expiring contracts.
