The Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers finished out the divisional round of the 2015-16 NFL postseason with style.

In what was mostly a defensive battle, the Steelers led from the opening quarter until early in the fourth. However, that lead sat at one point for much of that time. The Steelers were driving in the fourth quarter with an opportunity to add to it, but a forced fumble and a Broncos recovery changed the entire game.

Denver scored its first touchdown on the ensuing drive and never looked back.

It took all four quarters, a turnover and plenty of defensive stops, but the Broncos found a way to move ahead on the scoreboard before the final gun. They will now move on to face the New England Patriots in the AFC title game.

Denver 23, Pittsburgh 16
