Douglas received criticism from players, analysts, and fans alike on Twitter:
Harry Douglas should expect a healthy fine on that low hit on Chris Harris. Every look at the replay it's more dirty.

Harry Douglas said his hit on Chris Garris was a legal cut block. Said Awib Talib obviously doesn't watch film to know that.

After the game, Chris Harris Jr. shared what he thought about the play:
Chris Harris Jr. on Harry Douglas: "That was so illegal. I've never had someone try to end my career like that."

That loss is costly for the Broncos, as with the Dolphins winning earlier, Denver is on the outside looking in from the postseason. There is still plenty of football left, but the Titans survived a late Broncos drive for the win. Tennessee is tied with Houston at 7-6 for the AFC South lead, although the Texans hold the tiebreaker.
