Broncos Beat Patriots In Overtime; Improve To 5-0

On a day that was all about Broncos history, this might ring a bell: A 98-yard, fourth-quarter drive to save the game and get a city thinking Super Bowl.

Kyle Orton moved Denver from its 2 to the end zone to tie it Sunday, then Matt Prater kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime for a 20-17 victory over New England that made rookie Broncos coach Josh McDaniels a winner over his old boss, Bill Belichick.

On a day when they wore mustard-yellow jerseys and vertically striped socks to celebrate their 50th anniversary, the Broncos improved to 5-0 for the first time since 1998 -- the last time they went to the Super Bowl.

    I am a die-hard football fan, especially Bronco fan, but I must admit I thought it would take a least a couple years for the new administration to get where they are now.....GO BRONCOS !!!!
