Best bet on the Tube


Some teams like to say the fourth quarter is theirs. The Denver Broncos are taking it to a different level. The Broncos have outscored their opponents 79-6 in the fourth quarter this season. The 73-point differential is 37 points better than the next best team, the New York Giants, and is the second-highest total through six games in the Super Bowl era. If Denver (3-3) holds New Orleans (2-4) without a point in the fourth quarter today ( 5:20 p.m. on NBC), it will match the franchise record set in 1977 by the “Orange Crush” defense that took Denver to its first Super Bowl – six straight games without allowing a fourth-quarter point. – AP
