As the Denver Broncos take on the Buffalo Bills, let’s take a walk down memory lane. In 2007, the Broncos were able to pull off quite the play to win.
The Denver Broncos are set to face off against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. When it comes to traveling to Orchard Park, it has not been kind to the Broncos lately. They have suffered two straight losses in western New York.
The last time the Broncos won against the Bills on the road was back in 2007. And was it ever a crazy time. It might have been a low scoring game, but it was not without some excitement. This game marked the first opening day start for Jay Cutler.
Cutler would end up throwing for 304 yards in the game on 39 attempts. But the two defenses on the field were just too strong. Denver’s starting running back Travis Henry ran for 139 yards on the day, which is quite impressive.
Marshawn Lynch, who was in the early part of his career before going to Seattle scored the Bills only offensive touchdown of the game. Buffalo scored their second touchdown on a 74 yard punt return.
What was crazy about the game was the final drive for the Denver Broncos. They would take the football down the field while down 14-12. A few key passes from Cutler helped the team drive down inside the Bills 25 yard line.
But with no timeouts and less than 15 seconds in the game, Mike Shanahan rushed the field goal unit onto the field and got Jason Elam lined up with just seconds left to kick the game winning 42 yard field goal to secure the 15-14 win.
The win would put the Broncos at 1-0 to start the season. It would be one of the seven wins Denver would get during the season. But if there was one game during that season that I enjoyed watching, it was this game.
