DENVER -- Something special is going on in Denver, folks.
The Broncos just beat New England in overtime and first-year Broncos coach Josh McDaniels led a raucous celebration. McDaniels went near the stands, spurring the fans with wild fist pumping. Then, he jumped into the arms of his players. There's plenty to celebrate.
The Broncos are 5-0 and the NFL’s most compelling story.
After starting 3-0 against weaker competition, Denver overcame deficits to beat Dallas and New England.
The Broncos are for real and their exuberant 33-year-old coach is loving every minute of it.
