You've never seen a play as crazy as the end of Broncos v Saints tonight

Eh, what?

THIS IS CRAZY.

With less than two minutes to play, Drew Brees threw what looked to be the go-ahead touchdown for the New Orleans Saints against the Denver Broncos, connecting with Brandin Cooks on a 32-yard pass.

Cooks’ TD tied the game at 23-23, giving the Saints an extra point attempt to take the lead with 1:22 remaining.

What happened next was truly bizarre.

Denver’s Justin Simmons jumped the line and blocked the extra-point attempt, allowing Will Parks to scoop up the ball and run it all the way back to win the game.

It is the first time in NFL history that a game has been won with a defensive two-point conversion, ESPN reports.

The madness doesn’t end there, however. Look at how close Parks was to stepping out of bounds.

Was his foot on the line?

The referees reviewed the score and upheld it, and the Broncos held on to win in truly unprecedented fashion.
