I don’t think that would work. It would have to be a touchdown, not a field goal or safety.

Damn. I took a quick visit to the john and came out in time to just barely catch the guy at the 50 yd line run it in for a TD. I will never go to the bathroom again- or at least until after the Super Bowl.

That is about as sudden death as you can get in the first non sudden death game.

A safety is considered a defensive score so I would say that counts.

Pitt had possession, they could have tried to retain it with an onside kick...IMO

If you score on the first 4 downs, you win.

If you score a touchdown on the first possession, you win.
If you turn the ball over and the defense scores, they win.
If you score a FG on the first possession , the opponent gets a possession, to tie and continue, or to win.

Or something like that.

This is good.

Steelers are a no good bunch of criminals..rapist, dwi killers and such.

“And Rush is not going to be a happy camper tomorrow either.”

I have a feeling he won’t feel all that bad the Steelers lost since Tebow had a good game. Thomas made up for that earlier drop with a good catch and run on that last play.

For those who want some details of the Bronco-Steelers game, here’s ESPN’s initial report:

______________________________________

Tim Tebow rediscovers magic as Broncos oust stunned Steelers in OT

DENVER — One of the most storied NFL playoff teams ran into a rejuvenated Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.

Sorry, Pittsburgh Steelers.

The magic is back.

Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas on an electrifying 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime and the Broncos defeated the stunned Steelers 29-23 in the AFC wild-card game on Sunday. The play took 11 seconds and was the quickest ending to an overtime in NFL history.

Thomas hauled in a high play-action pass at the Denver 38, stiff-armed Ike Taylor and then outraced Ryan Mundy to the end zone. Tebow knelt in his own end zone, pounding a fist in triumph before taking a victory lap in jubilation.

Behind Tebow’s 316 yards passing, the Broncos (9-8) are heading to New England for a second-round game against the top-seeded Patriots on Saturday night.

The Steelers (12-5) lost despite Ben Roethlisberger rallying Pittsburgh from a two-touchdown halftime deficit with 10 points in the final 10 minutes.

_______________________________

I find it interesting that Tebow’s 316 yards passing helped win the game. Considering one of Tebow’s favorite Bible verses is John 3:16.

Divine Intervention??

>> “OK can someone explain this. I thoughtr each team got one possesioin in OT now.” <<

.
But not if a TD is scored during the first posession, by either the offense, or defense.

This was the first game the NFL used new OT rules, instead of the old rules. On the OT coin toss the official mentioned the new rules, as well as the play by play announcers.

The current Steelers are a far cry from the teams of the 70's with players such as Vietnam Veteran Rocky Blier.

Absolutely dirty hit by James “I don't care if I hurt anyone” Harrison, destroying the knee of Broncos top receiver. James Harrison should be removed from the league. Even high school players know how to tackle/wrap up correctly.

Clearly backward pass, refs missed an obvious fumble...given field position likely a 7 point swing.

Multiple face masks on Tim Tebow never called. Broncos would have a really good chance to win in regulation if called.

The only 2 times the game can be over in one possession is an offensive touchdown or a defensive score. Go Tebow!!!!

Two uncalled facemasks on Tebow AFTER an uncalled blatant one in the middle of the field vs. Lance Ball...ALL 4th quarter during the "siesta" time of the refs!

One of ESPN's "wrap-ups" of the game mentioned the "aging" Steeler defense.

When your talent was yesteryear, you resort to gangsta football "style."

It wasn’t so much a punch in the stomach to this Steeler fan. There are so many key injuries on this team that I didn’t think they would have made it to the SB anyway. Time to get some offensive linemen in the offseason!

Congrats to Tebow & Co.!
