ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Jason Elam, who has scored more points for one team than anyone in NFL history, made a 42-yard field goal just before time ran out to lift the Denver Broncos to a 15-14 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Elam, who had missed two field-goal tries, almost didn't have a chance to make up for it. The Broncos were out of timeouts when Jay Cutler connected with Javon Walker on an 11-yard pass with 14 seconds left.

The Superdome, heavily damaged when Hurricane Katrina hit Aug. 29, can be repaired and ready to reopen for major football events by Nov. 1, a consultant's report says. Repair costs are estimated at about $140 million and most of that is expected to be covered by the state's insurance and by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The renovation will include extensive improvements to the building that can be done at the time at a lower cost.

Udeze, hurt in Minnesota's game against New Orleans on Sept. 25, didn't play last week at Atlanta.

Former Orange Lutheran High and Saddleback Community College quarterback Jason Whieldon will replace Timmy Chang as Hawaii's starter in Saturday night's game against No. 18 Boise State (11-1, 7-0 Western Athletic). The Warriors (8-4, 5-2) are second in the nation in passing offense, averaging 379.2 yards a game. But Chang, touted as a Heisman candidate, struggled in Hawaii's 37-29 victory over Alabama and was replaced by Whieldon, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for another.
