Sunday, November 16, 2008. (AP) -- Denver pulled out every trick to deal with a rash of injuries, even starting a player on both offense and defense, to beat the surprising Falcons 24-20 on Sunday.

Jay Cutler threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Graham with 5 1/2 minutes remaining, the Denver defense held off Matt Ryan's last-gasp drive and Denver handed the Falcons their first home loss of the season.

Michael Turner scored on a 28-yard run to put Atlanta ahead 20-17 with just under 11 minutes left, but the Broncos (6-4) managed to pull out their second straight victory on the road.
