Steelers versus Broncos

The game is nearly half-way through the third quarter.

The plays are interesting but the game is not. The Steelers are up 27-10.

The plays include penalties on every other play this quarter and some magician's work by Denver quarterback, Jake Plummer. The Broncos just scored on a nice, straight ahead rush from about the four.

Update, the Steelers are grinding down the Broncos. They can't run very well. I suspect that their average rush today will be about 2.5 to 3 yards. However, they are combining those rushes with penalties and passes to keep the Denver offence on the sidelines.

Additionally, their defence is doing the job. Without the penalties, the Broncos wouldn't get anywhere. Because there is nobody open down field, Plummer is reduced to scrambling for near first downs. Because they can't pass or run, even when he does something good like scramble for eight yards, it still requires another play or two to get the first down.

It looks like Roethlisberger is going to get the game ball but its the Steelers' defence that is winning this game.

Denver is probably going to score one more touchdown but as they are behind by 17, the Steelers are cool with it. There's only a half-minute remaining in the game.

Nope, it's over. Denver had no time-outs and they were playing in the middle of the field.

Pittsburgh is in the Super Bowl.
