Broncos stun Vikings with late touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Courtland Sutton
The Broncos won 21-20 against the Vikings with a last-minute touchdown. They have won four straight and are 5-5.
The Broncos had a rough start to their game on Sunday night, but they managed to pull off a win in the final minutes. Quarterback Russell Wilson made a 15-yard touchdown pass to Courtland Sutton with just over a minute left, securing a 21-20 victory over Minnesota at Empower Field at Mile High.
The Vikings had a chance to win the game with a final drive, but the Broncos' defense managed to stop them. The Broncos have now won four games in a row, bringing their record to 5-5 and putting them in second place in the AFC West.
Wilson was confident in the team's win, despite the difficult game they had. The Broncos struggled to take the lead until the final minutes, but they managed to stay in the game thanks to three takeaways. The Broncos got a fumble recovery from J'Quan McMillian, a fumble recovery from Jerry Jeudy, and an interception from McMillian. However, they were only able to convert those takeaways into nine points, all from field goals by Wil Lutz.
Broncos coach Sean Payton acknowledged that the Vikings outperformed the Broncos in several areas, but he was pleased with the win. The Vikings outgained the Broncos in yards and had a strong ground game, but the Broncos' defense managed to hold them off. Wilson had a better game than Vikings' quarterback Joshua Dobbs, despite the Broncos' poor third-down conversion rate.
The Broncos are hopeful that this win marks a turning point in their season. They are aiming to make the playoffs after a rough start, and they are confident that they can achieve this goal. Only four teams have made the playoffs after a 1-5 start, and the Broncos are determined to become the fifth.
