Broncos to face Steelers in AFC playoffs
DENVER — The Broncos will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC divisional round playoff game on Sunday.
The Steelers rallied for an improbable 18-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night in a wild card game.
As the lowest remaining seed in the AFC playoff, Pittsburgh will travel to Denver for the game at 2:40 p.m. Sunday.
The Broncos lost to the Steelers, 34-27, on Dec. 20 in a game in which the Broncos led, 27-10.
It will be the eighth time the teams will have met in the playoffs.
The last time the Broncos and Steelers matched up in the playoffs was on Jan. 8, 2012, when the Broncos won on an 80-yard touchdown pass by Tim Tebow to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime.AlertMe
