Hall of Fame Game final score, takeaways: Lock forgettable in Broncos debut, Benkert pushes for Falcons' backup job


The Broncos scored the game-winning touchdown with just under 90 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, with Brett Rypien's pass somehow landing in Juwann Winfree's arms after the ball took a deflection in the end zone .


Matt Schaub -- yes, he's still around -- got the start at quarterback for the Falcons before Kurt Benkert replaced and outshined him, while Kevin Hogan got things going for the Broncos before it was Lock's turn under center.


On that second series, Hogan got into a bit of a rhythm, converting a third down to Fant, connecting with Fred Brown for 15 yards, and squeezing an eight-yard completion to Brendan Langley into tight coverage before Muhammad breached the end zone from in close.


Late in the second quarter, he led an impressive two-minute drill that culminated with a tying touchdown pass to Brian Hill near the goal line.


Falcons fourth-round pick John Cominsky, a defensive end out of Charleston, made an early impression with a fumble recovery and a sack of Lock.


Near the end of the second quarter, a 43-yard penalty was called on Broncos cornerback Linden Stephens , who was defending Falcons receiver Russell Gage down the left sideline.
