What a way to end an ugly game.

The Denver Broncos beat the Buffalo Bills, 24-22 Monday night on a walk-off 36-yard field goal from Wil Lutz.

Lutz missed his first shot at the game-winner from 41 yards. But the Bills had 12 men on defense on the kick, drawing a penalty to set Lutz up for a second shot. This time he didn't miss.

The Broncos were only in position for the field goal after a 28-yard pass interference penalty set them up deep in Bills territory. Denver's offense struggled most of the night, but the Bills gave them too many chances with four turnovers and the late mistakes.

    A fitting way to end an ugly game. Wil Lutz missed the game-winning 41-yard field goal wide right. But the Bills had 12 men on the field, drawing a flag and giving Lutz another shot from 36 yards. This time, he connected as time ran out for a 24-22 Broncos win and a gut-wrenching loss at home for the Bills.

    Now the Broncos are in range for a go-ahead field goal thanks to a 28-yard pass interference penalty. Brutal way to lose the game for Buffalo if this plays out.

    Hamlin made a tackle of Broncos tight end Adam Trautman on a six-yard catch, his first of the season on defense.

    The Bills take their first lead of the night with 1:55 remaining on a Josh Allen touchdown run. Bills, 22-21, and Denver's two botched extra points loom large.

    This was a lucky bounce. James Cook's dribble-enhanced 42-yard run has the Bills in position to take a late lead.

    And the Broncos convert. A 12-play, 54-yard drive is the longest of the night for Denver and ends with a Javonte Williams TD catch. But the Broncos botch the extra point -- for a second time. Denver leads, 21-15 with 5:06 remaining in regulation.

    A stagnant Broncos offense is driving with a chance to take a late lead.

    The Bills turn it right back over. Josh Allen drops the handoff to James Cook, and the Broncos take over at midfield. Four Bills turnovers are keeping Denver in this game.
