Sammy Winder completed a nine-year career with the Denver Broncos by rushing for 80 yards in 15 carries and came within six yards of what would have been a fitting climax as Denver defeated the Green Bay Packers, 22-13, Sunday. Both Winder and Coach Dan Reeves wanted him to score following a 15-yard run that put the ball on the six-yard line with seconds remaining. But Reeves instead had backup quarterback Gary Kubiak sit down and run out the clock.

This is a game that the New York Giants will probably win. Can the Denver Broncos make it close for a while? Sure--if John Elway comes in with a hot hand. The Denver quarterback matches up well against the defense he will see in Pasadena Sunday. Defensively, the strength of the Giants is that they attack, and punish, as a cohesive, disciplined team. They are especially tough on pocket passers. But to hurt a man, you have to catch him, and Elway's strength is outside the pocket.

NBC's Dick Enberg was pressed into double duty Sunday when Bob Costas came down with a severe case of the flu. Costas was so sick Sunday morning that he checked himself into a Denver hospital. Enberg, besides calling the game, also had to take Costas' place on the pregame and postgame shows. Then Ralph Wiley, who was scheduled to conduct postgame interviews in the Cleveland locker room, was stricken with the flu during the game.

Because of the humidity, John Elway had trouble getting a grip on the football Sunday. But the Denver quarterback still managed to complete 19 of 38 passes for 291 yards and 3 touchdowns as the Broncos defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 44-28. Elway said the ball was wet throughout the game and "it was flying on me. That's the first time in a long time I've played in this kind of humidity and it was tough for me, but, heck, I'll take 44 points any day."

The Denver Broncos have discovered the secret to winning in Pittsburgh, usually among the most hostile of environments for visiting NFL clubs. According to Bronco quarterback John Elway, you've got to think big when playing the Steelers at home. "We went looking for the big play and we got a few," Elway said after throwing three touchdown passes in the Broncos' 21-10 victory over the Steelers Monday night.
