Going for the extra point, Broncos safety Will Parks jumped over the line to block the kick, and ran it back into the endzone for a defensive two-point conversion. After a review to determine if Parks stayed in bounds upheld the call, the Broncos took a knee and won it 25-23.

The Saints happened to have been the first team to ever score a defensive two-point conversion in the NFL since the league changed its extra point rules. Ouch.
