Denver, CO (AP) – The Denver Broncos secured a nail-biting 21-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, abruptly ending the Vikings’ longest winning streak in the NFL at five games with Courtland Sutton’s sensational leaping 15-yard touchdown catch. Sutton outleapt cornerback Mekhi Blackmon for the game-winner, securing the Broncos’ lead with just over a minute remaining. This win puts the Broncos on the map with the league’s longest winning streak at four.
Driving the Broncos to victory, Russell Wilson’s 259 yards without an interception sealed the win. The Broncos’ defense held strong, producing three takeaways and denying the Vikings any opportunity to get off their own side of the field. After a 7-minute, 20-second drive by the Vikings, the Broncos came out on top, managing to secure the win with a 20-15 lead against the Vikings.
The Vikings’ slim lead was overturned when Russell Wilson drove the Broncos down the field with a series of precise plays, eventually connecting with Courtland Sutton for his eighth TD of the season. However, it was the Broncos’ defense that sealed the victory, denying the Vikings any opportunity to come back from the late lead secured by the Broncos.
Injuries plagued the Vikings’ game, with DL Dean Lowry’s pectoral injury ruling him out for the remainder of the game, and star receiver Justin Jefferson missing his sixth game due to a strained right hamstring. Although the Vikings’ injury struggles loomed large, the Broncos clinched the hard-fought win.
On the horizon, the Vikings will host Chicago, and the Broncos are set to host Cleveland, in their upcoming matchups.
