DENVER -- Broncos coach Josh McDaniels showed his mettle and the call worked.
Except for that holding penalty.
After McDaniels lost a challenge, he went for it on fourth-and-5 from the Pittsburgh 39-yard line with 7:40 to go in the second quarter and Pittsburgh leading 7-3.
But the play showed McDaniels has confidence his team can move the ball on Pittsburgh’s defense.
