The Denver Broncos came away with a huge victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, defeating them 31-19 in a game that was close throughout. Broncos newcomer Tracy Porter picked off a Ben Roethlisberger pass to put the Broncos up for good, 31-19, with about two minutes remaining in the game.
All across the board, the Broncos played sound and disciplined football. The offense played efficiently, with Manning not turning the ball over a single time. When the Broncos operated in the no-huddle, they were unstoppable, scoring on every single one of their drives. The defense held the Steelers to under three yards a carry and shut down the Rashard Mendenhall-less running game of the Steelers.
Manning took hits, still completed passes and responded every time Pittsburgh scored to take the lead.
As a Broncos fan, there was a lot to feel good about in this game.
