Stephen Gostkowski with two faces
In the second game of this traditional “double header” on Monday night, the Tennessee Titans achieved a snatch success on the Denver Broncos (16-14).

Unusual failures (he has already had 5 full seasons with four or less missed kicks) which left Denver the advantage at the start of the last minute (14-13).
But Gostkowski finally had the last word when seventeen seconds from the end his 25-yard attempt found its way to the posts to his relief and that of his teammates.
