Emmanuel Sanders made the Steelers miss him by burning them for a long touchdown catch.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders became involved in the Broncos offense heavily once again. Sanders is helping the Broncos take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, his former team. The Broncos are continuing to make great use of Sanders, as he burned the Steelers defense with a 61-yard touchdown. Here is a video of Sanders catching a pass while wide open and taking it to the house.
As of his touchdown, Sanders has caught four passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. He and Demaryius Thomas have each caught a touchdown pass for the Broncos, and quarterback Brock Osweiler has taken advantage of a weak Steelers pass defense. As of the Broncos’ last touchdown, Osweiler has thrown for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
The Broncos are still in the hunt for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, and they will improve to 11-3 if they can hold on for the win. Meanwhile, the Steelers are still fighting for a playoff berth with an 8-5 record.
They do not appear likely to win the AFC North, so they will be battling for a wild card spot. It remains to be seen whether the Broncos can attain the No. 1 seed even with the New England Patriots reaching 12 wins.
