The Steelers winning streak is over.
Pittsburgh’s comeback came up just short as it fell to the Broncos 24-17 Sunday at Mile High Stadium. The Steelers had won their last six games.
The Broncos took a touchdown lead on the first play of the fourth quarter when Phillip Lindsay punched it in from 9-yards out.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, however, strung together a nine-play, 54-yard drive to move his team into position to tie the score in the final minutes. But, Broncos lineman Shelby Harris picked off Roethlisberger in the end zone with 1:07 to play to seal the win.
