Stokley comes up big again
By Bill Williamson
DENVER -- All Brandon Stokley does is make big plays.
Stokley caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Orton on third-and-8 to give Denver a 23-6 lead and major command of the game over the New York Giants with 10:15 to go in the game.
Stokley has been little used this season. He is the team’s fourth receiver, but Stokley, known as one of the NFL’s all-time great No. 3 receivers, makes his plays count.
He had the game-winning touchdown against Cincinnati on opening day in the final seconds on a deflected pass. Now he made the big play to perhaps ice the game for the Denver and end its four-game skid.
