So many factors led to Broncos' dramatic winning TD

It will go down as one of the greatest plays in NFL history.

It was set up by the Broncos' league-best rushing attack and the fact that Denver had run on 21 of their 24 first-down plays in regulation.

On the first snap of overtime, the Steelers brought every defender within five yards of the line of scrimmage to stop a first-down run.

Ike Taylor was on an island with Thomas, with no help in the deep middle of the field. Thomas' post pattern off of play-action was the perfect play call to attack the defense.

After faking a handoff to Willis McGahee, Tebow calmly set his feet and delivered a strike to Thomas. The pinpoint pass hit the big receiver in stride, Thomas stiff-armed Taylor and had the speed to finish the touchdown.
