Steelers 17, Broncos 24
“They did a lot right , we didn’t do enough right.” – Cam
The Steelers six-game winning streak was snapped in Denver in a 24-17 loss to the Broncos.
The Steelers, who still maintain first place in the AFC North with a 7-3-1 record, couldn’t overcome two fumbles and two interceptions, which eventually resulted in 14 points for the Broncos.
Disappointing. But you’ve got to give Denver credit,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “They had a winning performance. We did not. We accept responsibility for that. It was the turnover ratio. We didn’t do a good enough job of taking care of the ball. We also didn’t do a good enough job of getting the football. You’ve got to look at it from that perspective. It’s dual responsibility. We didn’t take care of the ball well enough. We didn’t balance that out by getting the ball. When you are minus whatever we were in the game, it’s going to be tough to win. We’ve got some work to do, we’ll do it. We’ll absorb this and what comes with this and get back to work tomorrow.”
Tough loss, yes…but there were highlights!
One highlight of the game was the touchdown pass from Boswell to Villanueva. Yes, you read that right, K→OT.
Don’t believe us? Check it out!
The celebration was huge after Villanueva scored and then gave the ball to the referee.
Cam had three tackles and he split a key sack with Javon Hargrave.
The Steelers will take on the Chargers next week in prime time.
And, we are still in the top spot for the AFC North.
