The Minnesota Vikings had another huge lapse in coverage, and it cost them to the point where they are now tied with the Denver Broncos as the clock moves in the fourth quarter.
Once again, the Vikings were unable to figure out how to cover the Demaryius Thomas, as he was wide open again for a 42-yard completion that moved the Broncos down to the Minnesota 24-yard line. On the very next play, Willis McGahee took a handoff from Tim Tebow and sprinted into the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown run to make the score 29-27.
The Broncos decided that this was the time to go for two, and Tebow took a shotgun snap, faked a handoff, and rumbled into the end zone for the two-point conversion and a tie game.
This has been a crazy, crazy game, folks, and the thought of Tim Tebow having another big fourth quarter opportunity is a scary prospect. However, the Vikings are in Bronco territory as the clock has moved under six minutes to play at the Metrodome.
