Broncos halt Patriots' comeback to win AFC Championship, advance to eighth Super Bowl
Sunday January 24th, 2016

A missed extra point came back to haunt the Patriots.

After Stephen Gostkowski missed a point-after kick in the first quarter of the AFC Championship Game, New England needed a two-point conversion to tie the game late in the fourth. The Patriots could not convert after a Tom Brady pass was tipped in the air by Aqib Talib and intercepted by Bradley Roby.

Denver won 20–18 after the failed two-point attempt.
