Broncos Vs. Steelers Go To Overtime In 2012 NFL Playoffs

The Denver Broncos and the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to overtime in the 2012 NFL Playoffs. After the Steelers tied the game late on a Ben Roethlisberger touchown pass to Mike Wallace, the Broncos weren't able to do anything (though the failure of the referees to make necessary calls precipitated much of that).

Instead, the Steelers did have one final attempt at scoring. They came close, but the Broncos defense held strong. Elvis Dumervil sacked Roethlisberger and caused a fumbled that Pittsburgh recovered. However, a delay of game and a short pass failed to put the Steelers into field goal position. Robert Ayers ended regulation by sacking Roethlisberger.

The Broncos will receive the ball.
