But then, as time expired, it looked like they might luck their way into at least living to see overtime after Wilson’s Hail Mary heave bounced off a couple of sets of hands before being hauled in by Denver rookie wide receiver Brandon Johnson for a TD that made it a two-point game at 35-33.
The Broncos, however, then failed to convert on the two-point conversion and the game was over.
This unlikely touchdown was pretty cool, though. Check it out:
