The Broncos have made this a ballgame
By Matt Mosley
PHILADELPHIA -- Just when you thought the Eagles were about to put this one away, the Broncos came storming back on the strength of a huge special-teams play by Darrell Reid. He raced down the field and separated rookie Macho Harris from the ball, setting up another quick score for the Broncos.
It looked like the Eagles would hold on to a seemingly comfortable 27-10 lead when Asante Samuel intercepted a Kyle Orton pass late in the third quarter. But the Eagles were hit with two 15-yard penalties during the return, causing them to have awful field position at the start of the drive.
The Broncos now have the ball near midfield.
