Two touchdown-saving plays by Denver’s cornerbacks helpd force the Rams to settle for a 26-yard Jeff Wilkins field goal to cap a 15-play, 69-yard march.
The first was a superb open-field tackle by Champ Bailey on Steven Jackson with second-and-goal from the Denver 8. Jackson had room heading to the outside, but Bailey fought off a block to snag the tailback in the open field for no gain.
One play later, Marc Bulger found Shaun McDonald in the end zone, but Domonique Foxworth was on him in tight coverage, swatting the pass away — much to the consternation of the home fans, whose reaction indicated they wanted a pass-interference call.
