The offseason's best soap opera has become the regular season's biggest surprise. Not even Denver's mustard-yellow uniforms and vertically striped socks could put a damper on that.
The Denver Broncos are now 5-0 for the first time since 1998 after beating the New England Patriots in overtime 20-17 on Sunday.
Kyle Orton led a 98-yard drive in the fourth quarter to tie the game, then Matt Prater kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime.
Both teams wore their old uniforms as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the AFL.
The Broncos have made it to the Super Bowl the other four times they've won their first five - and after this latest win, anything seems possible.
