Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania-Ben Roethlisberger passed 253 yards and two touchdowns and rookie Najee Harris ran to a career high 122 yards. The Steelers beat the Denver Broncos 27-19 to end their three-game losing streak.
Denver trailed 18 points at the end of the third quarter. But, Denver rebounded thanks to quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater started the game after having studied the NFL’s concussion protocol for the week.
The Steelers achieved this rare balance during a difficult month by beating the Broncos 3-1.
Denver’s September was a dream come true, but this defeat turned it into a disappointment. Last month, the Broncos beat Jacksonville, New York Giants and New York Jets. They haven’t made it to the finals in weeks of testing in Baltimore or Pittsburgh.
Bridgewater completed 24 passes of 38 in the fourth quarter. He gained 288 yards and scored two touchdowns. He led Denver to Pittsburgh at the 10-yard line in final minutes, but his fourth down pass from Courtland to Sutton was stopped by James Pierre.
