For the first time in five years, we something we haven’t.
Drew Lock did something only two other quarterbacks have done in franchise history. He helped the Broncos (3-4) overcome the fourth-largest comeback in franchise history, and the largest since Peyton Manning erased a 24-point deficit at San Diego in 2012.
As Troy Renck also noted on Twitter, the Lock touchdown to KJ Hamler is just the second game-winning or game-tying touchdown as time expired in the fourth quarter or overtime in franchise history. The last was John Elway to Rod Smith on a 43-yard touchdown in 1995.
As a way to celebrate, Breaking T has this awesome Mile High Magic shirt.
The question now: Is it really back or was this a one-time occurrence?
On the MHR Radio Podcast, both Adam Malnati and I are cautiously optimistic. Perhaps it’s the last five years but we need to see more. We need to see it on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons (2-6). What’s fascinating is the Broncos open as 4-point underdog.
Lock and the Broncos took another step with the come-from-behind win over Los Angeles. Can Denver now build on that against the Falcons?
It would help to bring some of that Mile High Magic to Atlanta.
