DENVER – Champ Bailey knocked away the game-tying touchdown pass from Sam Hurd with 1 second left and the Denver Broncos escaped with a 17-10 over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

On fourth-and-goal from the 2, Tony Romo dropped back and found Hurd cutting over the middle, but Bailey reached around and swatted the pass away at the last second, giving the Broncos their first 4-0 start since 2003.

The Broncos took the lead on Brandon Marshall’s 51-yard touchdown catch with 1:46 remaining.

The Cowboys fell to 2-2.
