ATLANTA - (AP) Denver pulled out every trick to deal with a rash
of injuries, even starting a player on both offense and defense, to
beat the surprising falcons 24-20 on sunday.
Jay Cutler threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Graham with
5 minutes remaining, the Denver defense held off Matt Ryan's
last-gasp drive and Denver handed the Falcons their first home loss
of the season.
Michael Turner scored on a 28-yard run to put Atlanta ahead
20-17 with just under 11 minutes left, but the broncos (6-4)
managed to pull out their second straight victory on the road.
Cutler was 19 of 27 for 216 yards and 1 touchdown with no interceptions. Starting runningback Peyton Hillis rushed 10 times for 44 yards and 2 scores. Brandon Marshall led Denver with 6 catches for 89 yards. Denver hosts Oakland next week.
