Yes they were at home and had their backs to the wall, but this also the same Denver team that was CRUSHED at home against a very average San Diego team. We have lost to two bad teams on the road in a row. There was very little positive to take out of this game, and it's important to put Denvers talent level in proper perspective. They are a bad football team and we lost to them yesterday.
All true for the most part but the key factor was motivation. Denver just wanted it more and by the time the Steelers matched it......too late.
