According to ESPN Stats and Information’s win probability model, Denver had a 97.2 percent chance of winning right before Jacoby Jones' TD.

Before everyone goes nuts about points and offense, let's remember the winning teams yesterday held Rodgers to 17 points, and Manning to 21.

Not counting pick-6. RT : dont u mean 24 points for Rodgers? Or u not counting the rushing TD scored by their RB?

Sorry ... Forgot about the garbage time TD. RT : 31 Pts - Def TD = 24 Pts
