Denver Broncos Block Extra Point and Return it for 2 Points to Beat Saints


The Saints scored with 1:21 to tie the game against Denver, and were an extra point away from taking the lead. Instead, it was Denver who would take the lead after the extra point was blocked and returned all the way for the score.

It was not without controversy. Will Parks appeared to step out of bounds during the return, but because it was called as being a scoring play on the field, the replay official determined it wasn’t clear that it should be overturned.

To add insult to this gut punch of a score, unlike other scoring plays, the Saints had to still kickoff following their touchdown, and were unsuccessful on the onside kick attempt.
