Can anyone outscore these Broncos? Dallas’ 48 points not enough as Denver wins

Can anyone outscore these Broncos? Dallas’ 48 points not enough as Denver wins

We're not accepting any more nominations for the NFL's game of the year. Everyone is battling for second place now.

The Broncos' 51-48 win over the Cowboys was decided on the final play by a Matt Prater 28-yard field goal, and tied for the fourth-most points in a game in NFL history. The teams also tied for the second-highest scoring game in regulation since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, according to STATS, trailing only the Cincinnati Bengals' 58-48 win over the Cleveland Browns in 2004.

The Broncos' victory over the Cowboys was as thrilling a contest as you'll find on a NFL field, with both offenses executing at a ridiculous level.

And give the Broncos this: When their defense needed to make a play, it finally came through.

Denver's defense didn't make many plays against Dallas. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw for more than 506 yards and five touchdowns. Maybe a few Broncos weaknesses were exposed (though, when outside linebacker Von Miller and cornerback Champ Bailey return soon, they should fill those holes). But Peyton Manning kept Denver in the game and one great interception by linebacker Danny Trevathan stole the win.

Trevathan's interception off Romo at the 2-minute warning (poor Romo ... he threw for more than 500 yards but you know what the storyline will be) set up the Broncos for a game-winning field goal as time expired.
