The results are in and it’s time to hand out the seventh Predominantly Orange“Golden Bucky” award, and the winner of the Denver Broncos Game of the Year award for the 2011-12 season is the Broncos 29-23 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL Wildcard Playoff Round.

The Broncos/Steelers game was the landslide winner, receiving 77% of the fan vote, with the Broncos/New York Jets game receiving 9% of the vote.
After two early field goals by the Steelers in the first quarter, the Broncos racked up 20 unanswered points in the second quarter thanks in part to an Eddie Royal touchdown reception and a Tim Tebow touchdown run. However, Pittsburgh was able to make a comeback which led to a 23-23 tie at the end of regulation. After the Broncos won the coin toss and received the ball in overtime, Tebow threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas on the first play to send the Mile High city a mile high with a dramatic 29-23 playoff victory.
Now, it’s time to vote on the first of the final two major categories, which is Most Valuable Player. Voting ends on Sunday, Mar. 18 at midnight, so get those votes in and tune in next week to see who gets the eighth “Golden Bucky” award and to vote on the last category!
