On the first rive of the second half, the Denver Broncos had more first downs than they did in all of the first half, 4-1. And that all resulted in the Broncos making it a one-point game in favor of the Minnesota Vikings, 15-14, after a touchdown pass.
Tim Tebow started the drive with a 17-yard pass to Eric Decker from his own 22-yard line. McGahee then had runs of 11, 14 and 9 yards to put the ball on Minnesota's 27-yard line. Several plays later on 3rd-and-9, Tebow found an open Demaryius Thomas for the touchdown. That was Tebow's ninth touchdown pass of the season.
The team opted to go for the extra point instead of the two-point conversion. With the game so early into the second half, there was no need to leave points on the field if the two-point conversion failed.
