It's a defensible move, but you have the chance to put the game in Peyton Manning's hands. One play and it's over. If the play isn't there, trust Manning to take a sack or check it down to keep the clock moving. That's a situation Manning lives for. There's no one better.

3. After the Broncos gave up a 70-yard touchdown to Jacoby Jones after a terrible breakdown in the secondary, the Broncos had 31 seconds left to try to set up a game-winning field goal. Manning took a knee again.

None of this comes a surprise to folks that have watched Fox coach a long time. But it's a shame to not even try to win with Manning on his side. The Broncos didn't go out swinging. They went out hoping not to lose.
you're such a trog. The odds of the Ravens converting for a TD were almost insurmountable but **** happens. The Broncos had the game won and due to utter incompetence by the defensive secondary the ratbird threw up a friggen rainbow prayer and they scored a TD.

I can hardly wait for the Broncos to crush the chiefs. It's gonna be worse than this:
