Despite the final outcome going the Broncos way 27-26, the story of the night was the breakout performance turned in by St. Louis Rams rookie LB Alec Ogletree.   

 

The University of Georgia grad nearly single-handedly kept the Rams in the game. Ogletree ripped the football from Ronnie Hillman's arms, scooped it up and returned it for a13 yard TD. He later added an interception of an errant Peyton Manning pass and ended the game with a half dozen tackles.
