Steelers Vs. Broncos Final Score: Denver Scores 17 Straight To Win 31-19

Peyton Manning is indeed back after leading the Denver Broncos to a 31-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night.

It may have been 20 months since Peyton Manning last played a football game that counted, but Sunday night in Denver you could not tell. On the second play of the fourth quarter, the Pittsburgh Steelers took a 19-14 lead on a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Mike Wallace. The two-point conversion failed, however, and Manning delivered a fourth-quarter comeback drive for the 36th time in his career.

It took only four minutes and 17 seconds and 10 plays for Manning to go 80 yards to put the Broncos back in front. He found former Colts teammate Jacob Tamme for a 1-yard touchdown pass and then Willis McGahee for the two-point conversion to put Denver in front 22-19.

Manning also connected with Tamme for a big pass play on Denver's next drive, which resulted in a field goal that put them ahead 25-19. Then, as Ben Roethlisberger attempted to mount his own comeback, Tracy Porter intercepted him with 1:58 left and returned it 43 yards for a game-icing touchdown.
