The Broncos could have easily played it safe, and walked out of their own stadium with a tie last night. But Gary Kubiak was willing to risk a loss to try for the win. One of today’s most-second-guessed calls is going to be his decision to let kicker Brandon McManus try a 62-yard field goal with a minute and eight seconds left in overtime, which could have won the game.

I have a lot of confidence in Brandon. I have a lot of confidence in our football team. That’s why I made that decision. . . .
