OT Denver 30 Pitt 23
TD you win!
Field Goal the opposing team gets the ball and a chance to score.
Only if the first team scores a FG because that’s what the whiners always complained about (apparently FGs become automatic in OT according to some), TDs are automatic end. Dumb rule. But at least it didn’t really take effect. Sudden death is the right OT.
But--looks like no-one cares now. So--YAY!!
Steelers were only in the game to begin with because an official blew a fumble dead early in the second half 17 yards away from another Bronco score.
This officiating crew needs to retire for the season...and a few of them for their career!
But the Lord does it again via Tebow!
Wow! If I had realized they won with that score, I would have hollered even louder. Yay Tebow!
Or if the Defense had scored on a fumble or interception.
Now I know why. They were obviously saving the fake for overtime.
What's most satisfying is that the Steelers will be denied another Super Bowl and another chance of a thank you to Obama. Dan Rooney's actions of 2009 are unforgivable. I've relished ever Steeler (aka the "Rooney Rulers") defeat since then.
Talk about a game with no rooting interest.
It was like that movie about the Communist sniper trying to kill the Nazi sniper.
That to but to be clear by score I meant TD in first 4 downs.
Thanks everyone. Someone posted all the OT rules on another thread. So if you score a TD its over. Sweet. Can just imagine what Bill Maher was saying when he saw this.
“Sudden death is the right OT.”
I disagree - Denver scored first because they won by luck the coin toss. Each team should have a possession.
Looks like Rush’s team lost again
Coming against the Stillers makes it even sweeter.
Have had no stomach for NFL football for quite some time......having said that, it has been most satisfying to follow Tebow! What an amazing finish!
Good for Denver. Now I can enjoy the Pats crush them on Sat night
Or a safety?
No, Denver won because they executed when it counted. The coin toss gave them the possession, the TEAM made the play. And I bleed black and gold. It’s football, both teams have the opportunity to score on every play. It ain’t baseball, teams don’t need turns. If Polamalu doesn’t blow his assignment he would have been in good shape for an INT, possibly a pick 6. The Steelers had the chance and failed. Nobody won because of the coin toss.
