Broncos Beat Steelers in Great Sunday Night Game!

Turnovers and a veteran placekicker turned out to be the right combination for the Denver Broncos as they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-28 at Mile High Stadium. I must admit, the Steelers are my team and I picked with my heart earlier. The first half opened with each team trading touchdown drives. Two interceptions thrown by Steeler QB Ben Rothlesberger and a fumble when Big Ben was being sacked ended up being the differnce in this game as the Broncos held a 7 point lead until late in the game when Pittsburgh scored on a pass play to a wide open TE Heath Miller. Then Jay Cutler led the Broncos on a drive that was added with a reversal of an incomplete pass call courtesy of instant replay. This set up a chance for Jason Elam to kick home a 48 yard field goal, not before Steeler Coach Mike Tomlin called a timeout that was ineffective. Elam nailed it right down the middle and the Broncos won. What a great game. Two tuff defenses and some great offensive plays made for an enjoyable Sunday Night game.
