The Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos were engaged in a classic game. With Adrian Peterson and Von Miller out for their respective teams due to injury, they were forced to watch from the sidelines.

This game was going back and forth with the Vikings holding the lead for most of the game. Although it was not a huge lead for the Broncos to overcome since the biggest lead the Vikings had was eight. So, we are going back to that number between the two teams.

With the Vikings leading 15-7 at the half, the teams would begin exchanging touchdowns with one another. Tim Tebow would find Demaryius Thomas for a 21 yard pass to cut the lead to one. But Percy Harvin caught a 52 yard touchdown to extend the lead back to eight.

Demaryius Thomas would match Percy Harvin’s long touchdown reception with a 41 yard reception of his own to cut the Vikings lead back to one. Then, Harvin pulled a “not so fast moment” and added another long touchdown, a 48 yard reception to extend the lead back to eight once again.

Less than a minute later, Willis McGahee would run 24 yards for a touchdown. Tebow would add a run for the two point conversion to tie the game at 29. After an exchange of field goals by both teams, Minnesota tried to drive down the field to win the game.

However, Christian Ponder would be intercepted by Andre Goodman with about one minute left in the game. This would lead to a Matt Prater field goal as time expired to give the Broncos a 35-32 win.
