The Denver Broncos have defeated the New England Patriots in overtime on Sunday Night Football. The Broncos used an overtime score for the 30-24 win in the snow at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium.

The Broncos’ win gives the Patriots their first loss of the season after coming into this game with a 10-0 record. Now, the Carolina Panthers are the only team with an undefeated mark at 11-0.

C.J. Anderson scored on a 48-yard run in overtime for the win. After getting past the initial Patriots line of defense, Anderson went untouched for a good 25-30 yards and into the end zone.

“To be honest, I don’t know what happened,” he said in a post-game interview with Michele Tafoya. “The hole opened up and I went for it.”

The game went into overtime after Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski made a 47-yard field goal with four seconds left. His field goal tied the game at 24.

In the fourth quarter, the Broncos scored 17 points with a 15-yard touchdown from Anderson. Andre Caldwell also scored on a 4-yard touchdown reception from Brock Osweiler.

Brandon McManus also had a 21-yard field goal in the quarter.

The Patriots’ lone score in the quarter was when Tom Brady hit Brandon Bolden for a 63-yard touchdown. That gave New England a 21-7 lead at the time.

“Coach (Greg) Knapp and I talked last night and said it was going to be a 60-minute game,” Osweiler said when Tafoya told him about this point.
