Crazy things happen in every week of the NFL season, but Week 17 always seems to be especially wild. That showed itself once again when Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum was intercepted in the end zone then Denver got the ball back on an insane sequence.

Late in the third quarter on third down, Keenum forced a ball into end zone, only to see it tipped in the air and intercepted by Chargers safety Jahleel Addae.

Addae returned it and made two beautiful moves in the open field then tried to flip the ball to cornerback Desmond King, who couldn’t grab it. Broncos offensive tackle Elijah Wilkinson then saved the day by recovering the fumble and giving the ball back to the Broncos.

In a matter of seconds, the Broncos saw a shot at a touchdown turn into disaster then that disaster turned into a miracle. At the end of it all, the Broncos got three points out of it and went into halftime trailing by a touchdown.
