Former Arizona safety Will Parks is an easy guy to root for — before leaving Tucson after last season, he gathered up several bags of his clothes and personally delivered them to needy people around town — so it was great to see him make a name for himself Sunday.
The Denver Broncos rookie scooped up a blocked PAT that would have given the New Orleans Saints a late lead and raced 84 yards down the left sideline into the end zone for two points. Denver won 25-23.
Here it is:

The big question: Did he step out?
Naturally, he said he didn’t (how would he know?), and, well, the only thing that matters is the refs didn’t think so.

Parks, a sixth-round pick, entered the game with 12 tackles on the season, an interception and a fumble recovery.
And now a game-winning highlight.
Great team win.. 🎒 #HorsePower
