The Steelers regained the lead when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger found wide receiver Mike Wallace for a 3-yard touchdown strike. Pittsburgh attempted a two-point conversion, but Roethlisberger’s pass was tipped at the line by defensive tackle Justin Bannan, making it 19-14 Steelers.
Early in the series, it looked as though Denver had forced a three-and-out when a long pass from Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger fell incomplete, but a personal foul call against the Broncos kept the drive alive.
The Steelers took advantage, moving to midfield on a 23-yard third-down completion from Roethlisberger to Heath Miller. From there, Pittsburgh used an 11-yard completion to running back Jonathan Dwyer and a run by Dwyer that was originally called a touchdown, but overturned to give the Steelers first-and-goal from the Broncos 2-yard line.
Denver’s defense held the Steelers on first and second down before Roethlisberger found Wallace for the score on third down.
