ANIMATED: Marion Barber's Fumble Gifts Denver Broncos An Overtime Win

The Denver Broncos have done it again. Going into the end of their game with the Chicago Bears, they were down 10-0. They did not deserve to have any points, because they had played an exceptionally poor game. Then, they came alive and scored 10 points, capped off by a 59-yard Matt Prater field goal to get into overtime. The dream comeback appeared to be up when the Bears got into field goal range in OT. Then, this happened.

All Marion Barber needed to do was hold onto the ball. Robbie Gould had already nailed a franchise record 57-yard field goal earlier in the game, and he's one of the most reliable kickers in football. If the Bears don't turn the ball over or take a sack on their last offensive play, they likely go on to win the game. Instead, this fumble led to the Broncos getting into field goal range and Prater striking again, hitting a 51-yard field goal to give the Broncos the 13-10 win.
