Today was the playoff game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos. The two best quarterbacks in the NFL were pitted against each other: Tim Tebow and Ben Roethlisberger.
It was a roller coaster trying to watch that game. YES! NO! GO!
Ben went into the game with a sore ankle, wore a brace and two different colored shoes, one being a size larger than the other. He got sacked several times, but still played on.
The Steelers were up 6-0, then at half time the Broncos were ahead. During the third quarter, the Steelers rallied and the game was tied 23-23 at the end of the fourth quarter.
The game went into NFL overtime - very unusual. The first play (and last play) took 11 seconds to complete. It was the fastest ending to an overtime in NFL history.
After the coin toss, the Broncos elected to receive. On the first play, Tebow threw the ball to his receiver who ran for an 80 yard touchdown with two Steelers running fast on his heels, but not fast enough.
The game was over and I faced BUMMER #2. A terrible weekend for me!
Next weekend the Broncos play the New England Patriots in New England. It will be interesting to see the former Bengal - Chad Ochocinco, a tall receiver - try to intercept a Tebow throw.
