DENVER -- The Broncos are a confident bunch.

They are celebrating touchdowns before they are official.

Late in the first quarter, quarterback Jay Cutler hit receiver Brandon Marshall in the back of the end zone. The nearby official ruled that Marshall didn't get both feet in the end zone before going out of bounds.

Denver was lining up for the next play when replays on the stadium big screen showed that Marshall, indeed, did get both feet inbounds. The Broncos' sideline erupted and Marshall and Cutler started celebrating with each other.

Marshall ran near the end zone where scored and gave the ball to a fan.

And this was before the play was even reviewed. Good thing for Denver that the play was reversed giving it a 14-3 lead.
