The biggest gripe from Broncos Country since it was announced that Manning’s most recent “idiot kicker” got released has been McManus hasn’t proved he can hit 50-yard field goals with no time left to give Denver the game and win.
Well, McManus does one better.
He not only hits the game-winning field goal he does so from 65 yards.
So McManus hits the game-winner for the Broncos and breaks the NFL record in one kick.
Are we really still talking about a kicker on a team with Manning?
