Broncos Return Blocked Extra Point to Win

The New Orleans Saints tied the Denver Broncos at 23-23 with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter. The Saints’ ensuing  extra point attempt was blocked by Broncos rookie safety Justin Simmons and returned by Will Parks, also a rookie safety, for two points.

The play was reviewed to make sure Parks didn’t step out of bounds. Parks was wearing white cleats which blended into the sideline, so the call very difficult. The play was not overturned after it was reviewed.


The Broncos advanced to 7-3, and have a bye next week. The Saints sunk to 4-5, and will play the Carolina Panthers this Thursday.
