Courtland Sutton’s touchdown catch with 1:03 remaining in the game powered the Denver Broncos to a 21-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Denver’s win on Sunday night ended the league’s longest winning streak at five games.

Hence, the Broncos now own the NFL’s longest winning streak at four.

Sutton outleapt Minnesota’s cornerback Mekhi Blackmon who was ready to intercept Russell Wilson’s high throw.

Danielle Hunter’s tackle on Javonte Williams kept the Vikings within a point a field goal to win it.

The Bronco’s defense, which created three more takeaways, didn’t allow its opponents to get out of their side of the field.

Denver even forced Joshua Dobbs into an intentional grounding before Dobbs threw a final incompletion with 16 seconds left.

Dobbs lost with the Vikings for the first time since the team acquired him in a sudden trade with Arizona.

Broncos’ safety Kareem Jackson played again from a two-game suspension and got away with another illegal hit on the Vikings’ opening drive.

NBC rules analyst Terry McAuley suggested Jackson’s hit should have given a 15-yard penalty with Minnesota maintaining possession.

The NFL will surely observe Jackson’s tackle and it will be bad news for the Denver Broncos.

Has has already been fined $89,670 for four illegal hits so far.
