Denver defeats Pittsburgh in thriller

PITTSBURGH (AP) - John Elway didn't
need a fourth-quarter comeback to get back to
the Super Bowl this time.
The Denver Broncos took a 10-point lead
on Elway's two touchdown passes in the final
two minutes of the first half, then held off
turnover-stricken Pittsburgh for a 24-21 victo-
ry Sunday in the AFC championship game.
Elway also led a tense drive in the final min-
utes to keep the ball away from the Steelers,
who pulled within a field goal on Kordell
Stewart's touchdown pass with 2:46 left, the
only points in the second half.

The score, Pittsburgh's first since Jerome
Bettis' 1-yard run with 12:42 left in the second
quarter, seemed to electrify the Steelers and
their bench, and they held Denver to 3 yards
on the their next two plays.
Elway found tight end Shannon Sharpe over
the middle for 18 yards and the first down,
and, with only 1:52 left, Denver had its fifth
AFC championship - and its second on the
road. The Broncos also won in the 1986 sea-
son in Cleveland, when Elway led the famous
98-yard march known as The Drive.
Elway finished 18-of-31 for 210 yards, two

touchdowns and an interception, while
Stewart was I 8-of-36 for 201 yards, a TD and
three interceptions, two of them in the end
zone.
On Sunday, the Steelers got the first big
break when 277-pound linebacker Levon
Kirkland wrestled the ball away from Sharpe
on the second play from scrimmage.
But Norm Johnson, who had missed only
three field goals all season, hooked a 38-yard
attempt wide left, allowing Denver to esca4
without giving up a potentially momentum-
swinging early score.

Green Bay is going back to the Super Bowl

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Brett Favre and
the Green Bay defense made the big plays. The
San Francisco 49ers made the big mistakes.
The result was a 23-10 Packers victory
Sunday in the NFC championship game that
sends them to San Diego, where they will play
for their second straight Super Bowl victory,
this time against the Denver Broncos.
Favre threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to
Antonio Freeman and for 222 yards overall,
taking advantage of San Francisco cornerbacks
Rod Woodson and Marquez Pope, the one
weakness in the 49ers' league-leading defense.
Instead, it was the Green Bay defense, play-
ing in rain that grew steadier as the game wore

on, that looked like the league's best.
The Green Bay defense allowed only three
points - the other seven came on Chuck
Levy's 95-yard kickoff return with 2:52 left.
That touchdown came after Dorsey Levens,
who ran for 114 yards, made it 23-3 with a 5-
yard TD run. It was the first time the 49ers
allowed a 100-yard game this season.
Eugene Robinson returned an interception
51 yards to set up the game's first touchdown.
Gilbert Brown, Brian Williams and LeRoy
Butler shut down the San Francisco running
game, limiting it to 32 yards on 17 carries.
And while the 49ers made a few big plays,
they also made huge mistakes -- 59 yards of

penalties in the first half.
A 43-yard pass from Young to J.J. Stokes put.
the 49ers in scoring position early in the seco,6
quarter.
Green Bay had a chance to break the game
open on its next possession, driving from its
own 16 to the San Francisco 11.
But Favre, pressured by Bryant Young and
Kevin Greene, was called for grounding on
third down, and Longwell's 48-yard attempt
was short and right.
But on the second play after the kickoff,
Favre took advantage of the San Francisco cor-
ners again, going deep to Freeman at the 49ers
25.
