Broncos Pull Within 13 On McGahee Touchdown Run

The awful first quarter has apparently been forgotten by the Denver Broncos, as they're starting to scrape their way back into the game in the fourth quarter. With 11:48 remaining in the final frame, the Broncos scored a touchdown off a 2-yard Willis McGahee run to pull the game back to within two scores, 27-14.

Denver's defense did its work efficiently in the first quarter, holding the Falcons to only 10 points even as the team turned the ball over four times. They'll need the same efficiency from the defense late in the game to keep it close so that Peyton Manning and the rest of the offense can continue to chip away at the lead and perhaps steal an unexpected win in the Georgia Dome.
