NFL : Denver Broncos beat Pittsburgh 29-23 with OT 80 yard strike

The Denver Broncos scored on an 80 yard TD pass in the first play in overtime to eliminate the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

Denver QB tim Tebow came alive in the 2nd quarter with 17 points in just 6 minutes to give the Broncos a 20-6 HT lead, but Pittsburgh fought their way back to tie the game 23-23 late in the 4th.

Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas with a short pass on his own 20 yard line with the first play of overtime and Thomas then scampered 80 yards to the endzone to win.

The play took 11 seconds and was the quickest ending to an overtime in NFL history.

The Broncos (9-8) are heading to New England for a second-round game against the top-seeded Patriots on Saturday night.
