No gutsy 2-point call this week. Just a gut-wrenching close call.
Martin Gramatica's 43-yard field goal try with 1:55 remaining was wide right, and the Denver Broncos escaped with a 34-32 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
The Broncos improved to 3-0 for the first time in five years despite allowing Drew Brees to complete 39 of 48 passes for 421 yards and a touchdown and Reggie Bush to pile up 178 all-purpose yards and two TDs.
The Saints (1-2) never led, but they made a game out of it after falling behind 21-3 early in the second quarter.
