Steelers Vs. Broncos, 2012 AFC Wild Card: Pittsburgh Can't Convert On Final Drive, Headed To Overtime, 23-23

Tie games, comebacks, those kind of things belonged to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow all season. With the game tied, Pittsburgh had the ball to finish out the final quarter. It looked like the comeback would be all Pittsburgh after Ben Roethlisberger threw a 17-yard completion and an 18-yard completion on back-to-back plays.

Then he got sacked. Pittsburgh did get a break, as Big Ben fumbled the ball but managed to recover it. He got sacked again four plays later, the final play of regulation.

That sent the game to overtime, both teams tied 23-23 with a new set of overtime rules that govern NFL overtime in the playoffs.

SB Nation's NFL bloggers made predictions for Wild Card weekend and here's a look at the updated NFL playoffs schedule for Sunday. Check out Behind The Steel Curtain for more on the Steelers and Mile High Report for more on the Broncos.
