Steelers Vs. Broncos Score Update: Isaac Redman And Mike Wallace Touchdown Cuts Denver's Lead To Seven

On their first possession of the second half, the Pittsburgh Steelers were giving new life by a sideline official that ruled what clearly appeared to be a backwards pass and fumble as just a Ben Roethlisberger incompletion. Denver recovered the dead ball but once the whistle blew to rule incomplete, Denver could not gain possession on a revidw.

The Steelers capitalized on the possession, and marched down the field to cut the Broncos lead to 20-13. Pittsburgh kept it on the ground, to move it 87 yards down the field. The drive was capped on the first rushing touchdown of Mike Wallace's career. The Steelers brought Wallace in motion and Big Ben quickly handed and he darted around end to the corner of the end zone.

The Wallace touchdown was set up by an amazing effort from Isaac Redman, who broke through the middle of the line on a crucial third and two and went 33 yards down to the one half yard line. The play was initially ruled a touchdown, but review ruled Redman down just before the plane as he dragged a Denver defensive back to the goal line. In addition to Redman's run, a huge end-around by Antonio Brown for 18 yards put Pittsburgh in Denver territory and kept the drive moving.

It was an impressive drive after the frenetic second quarter aerial show by Tim Tebow.
