Nobody will care about this play because the perception is that both of these teams suck.

Yeah, I can't think of one .... the "Toro Toro" opener in Buffalo was good, but this was GREAT!

The very definition of "victory from the jaws of defeat."

Right up there with last years season opening SD interception that was not called correctly and sealed the win for the Broncos.

Probably won't get much attention in the sports world as a whole (outside some highlights on SportsCenter this week), but in terms of Bronco finishes it has to be up there.

You beat me to this game, I think today's win was bigger because it was more of a fluke play coming after what appeared to be an INT on the play before.

WOOO HOOO WInning RoCks!


Woooo,

To compare this one, it has to be "victory from the jaws of defeat." As in, game over, hail mary time, BOOM!!!

This ranks up there with the miracle blocked FG kick against SD, that
Louis Wright ran back for TD in the (late 80S?) after they had blocked it once but given it back to SD on a penalty.

That was the most amazing incredible ridiculously unlikely miracle play in many years. Only one way you guys win that game.... God himself must be a Bronco fan. I hate you.

Regular season I put it #2 behind the Saints play in 2004 (I think?)

Laterals up the ass. Score to take it to overtime for a shot at the playoffs. Karney misses the PAT.

Lolz ensue.
