Rapid Reaction: Broncos 20, Patriots 17 (OT)



Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson


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-yar-old coach is loving every minute of it.
