15:00: With a fourth-and-goal from just a few inches out, the Broncos will go for it. Head Coach Mike Shanahan and Cutler both talked with Patrick Ramsey before the teams retook the field for the opening play of the fourth quarter.
15:00: Ramsey attempted to hit Clifford Russell in the back of the endzone but couldn’t make the connection as the ball passed in and out of Russell’s hands. Turnover-on-downs, and the Packers have the ball at their own one.
13:45: The Packers failed to get a first down, and with a fourth-and-three from their own eight, Jon Ryan comes in to punt the ball away. Martinez bobbled the punt, but managed to pick it up and return it 11 yards to the Packer 46-yard line.
13:30: Ramsey fires deep down the right sideline for Colbert, who made a nice adjustment to get to the ball, but he was hit hard by Jarrett Bush and couldn’t hold on.
12:43: Ramsey connects with Russell on third down for a gain of eight, giving the Broncos a first down at the Green Bay 34-yard line.
10:51: Peyton Hillis gets his first carry of the game on a third-and-one, and he gets the yard necessary for the first down.
9:09: On a third-and-five, Ramsey connects with Russell again, getting 10 yards and a first down. Ramsey follows that up with a nine-yard connection to Pittman for a touchdown! 24-20 Broncos.
8:27: Pat Lee and Jordy Nelson are back deep for the Packers following the Denver TD. This one is returnable, however, and Nelson takes it out to the 23-yard line before being forced out of bounds by Sapp.
8:27: Matt Flynn, the rookie out of LSU, is in at quarterback for Green Bay.
7:01: On third-down, Flynn throws a quick out to Chris Francies who is met immediately by Foxworth, who stops him for no gain. Jon Ryan booms a punt 79 yards for a touchback, bringing the Bronco offense back out onto the field.
5:21: Ramsey is hit as he throws, and the ball pops up in the air, getting picked off by Tracy White. The Packer offense comes back onto the field with a first-and-goal from the Denver 10.
4:45: Lumpkin carries up the middle and is taken down at the one, losing control of the ball. It bounces into the endzone, but none of it matters as the refs rule him down by contact.
4:00: Lumpkin attempts to dive over the line into the endzone but can’t make it, giving the Packers a fourth-and-goal at the one yard line.
3:19: Lumpkin gets in this time, running around the left end and juking past Karl Paymah for the touchdown. 27-24 Packers.
3:19: Larry Birdine was shaken up on the ensuing kickoff, but he got up and walked off after a few minutes, and Darrell Hackney is in at QB.
2:31: The Broncos thought they had a first down as Hackney fired down the middle to Martinez, but an illegal motion penalty negated the play. Now third-and-10 from the 30.
2:19: Hackney launches one deep down the right sideline to Keary Colbert, who can’t make the grab. The Broncos get set to go for it on fourth-and-10 but then call a timeout.
2:13: Hackney is flushed out of the pocket and scrambles right, but can’t find an open receiver. He is taken down as he throws, and the ball goes out of bounds. Turnover-on-downs, Green Bay ball at the Denver 30.
2:00: After one rush by Lumpkin, Matt Flynn takes a knee. It looks as if they will just run out the clock. Final score: 27-24, Packers over the Broncos.
