DENVER -- We're early in the fourth quarter and the game is tied at 23.

Buffalo countered a Denver touchdown drive with a quick one of its own to take the lead in this wild game.

Denver quarterback Jay Cutler scored on a 6-yard run to give Denver the lead late in the third quarter. It was the only run on a nine-play drive by Denver. The Broncos went down the field despite having communication device problems. Cutler often ran to the Denver sideline to get the incoming play. Buffalo had scored 16 unanswered points.

Cutler also set the Denver passing mark for the season. He broke Jake Plummer's team record of 4,089 yards set in 2004.

Buffalo running back Marshawn Lynch is out with a shoulder injury.

Denver cornerback Champ Bailey has departed the game twice. This is his first game back after missing seven games with a groin injury.
