Once again, the Denver Broncos came very close to winning.

And once again, they painfully fell just short.

The latest close loss was a 27-23 setback to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in Minneapolis.

The Broncos built a 20-0 halftime lead and led 23-7 after three quarter. But the Vikings came roaring back with three touchdowns in a span of seven minutes, 24 seconds of the fourth quarter to get the win.

Minnesota went up-tempo in the second half and came up with scores by three of their best players. Running back Dalvin Cook scored on a three-yard run, Stefon Diggs hauled in a 54-yard TD catch and Kyle Rudolph scored uncontested on a 32-yard touchdown reception with 6:01 remaining to cap the flurry and give the Vikings their first lead of the game.

The Broncos proceeded to drive to the Vikings' four-yard line before quarterback Brandon Allen threw three straight incompletions, the last one coming as the clock expired.

Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton caught five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. Allen finished 17-of-39 yards for 240 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.


The Broncos play at the Buffalo Bills next Sunday, November 24. Coverage starts at 7 a.m. MDT on KOA 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
