Shreveport native, Evangel high alum, and former LSU Tiger Jacob Hester couldn't carry the Broncos to the AFC Championship.
Denver fell to the Baltimore Ravens 38-25 in double overtime.
Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker drilled a 47-yard field goal in the second overtime session, sending the Ravens to the AFC Championship and Peyton Manning and the Broncos home with a bitter lose.
The Broncos appeared to be on their way to a win, carrying seven-point lead with less-than-a-minute to play.
But Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had other ideas.
Flacco connected with Jacoby Jones on a 70-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 35-a-peice.
Peyton Manning threw two interceptions in the loss. Including a costly pick that led to the Ravens game-winning drive.
Jacob Hester finished the day with eight carries for 11 yards. Fellow LSU Tiger Trindon Holliday had a career day in the loss. Holliday returned a kickoff for a touchdowns 104 yards and punt for a TD 90 yards.
