Denver struck last in a back-and-forth battle to slip away with the four-point win in Mile High Stadium. QB John Elway, definitely not facing his first fourth-quarter come-from-behind situation, led the Broncos on a game-winning touchdown march that chewed up 80 yards and over eight minutes on the clock. This one was broadcast live on Armed Forces Radio in the UK.
