Of course, that game was the one I second-most confident about, too (behind NE).
I STILL have to go hog-wild to make up ground...

Week 13: No Tie for Gary Kubiak Edition

This Bronco fan was 100% behind the decision to try that field goal. If the Broncos had punted into a tie it would feel no better than a loss and it would have been amazing if McManus had actually made that kick, which I think he's very capable of making.

posted by tron7 at 11:33 AM on December 01

The 62-yard field goal is five longer than McManus has ever made in his NFL career. The difference between a tie and a loss is a playoff spot (as of today). I could see the same scenario happening at season's end.
