DENVER -

The Broncos thrilling 24-21 win over the Chargers Monday night may be the talk around Colorado, but during the game, social media was focused on the sideline reporter.

Play-by-play commentator Beth Mowins, who became the first woman to call an NFL regular season game since 1987, went to Sergio Dipp for a report on new Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph during the first quarter of the Chargers-Broncos "Monday Night Football" nightcap.

Dipp hesitated and finally gave some scant details about Joseph's background and emphatically stating the coach was having "the time of his life." It turned out to be Dipp's only report of the night, but it instantly made him trend across the country.

The 29-year-old Mexican-born Dipp has been with ESPN since 2013, but has reported mostly for the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes. He posted a video message from his Denver hotel room after the game, thanking people for the attention.
