Broncos get late field goal, interception for victory over Packers

P.J. Locke saved the Denver Broncos from another second-half meltdown Sunday, intercepting Jordan Love’s deep pass in the closing minutes to preserve a 19-17 win over the Green Bay Packers.

Locke – subbing for safety Kareem Jackson who was ejected for the second time this season after an illegal high hit earlier in the fourth quarter on tight end Luke Musgrave – picked off the throw intended for Samori Toure just after the two-minute warning.

The Broncos ran out the clock to give head coach Sean Payton his first win at home in four tries and end a dubious streak in which Denver had lost 10 consecutive games when leading at halftime.

INJURIES

Four Packers were injured in the second quarter: DL Devonte Wyatt (knee), S Darnell Savage (calf), CB Eric Stokes (hamstring) and WR Jayden Reed (shin).
