Broncos lose ground in AFC West

DENVER (AP) - First-year Broncos coach Josh McDaniels had the Midas touch at the start of the season, his every move paying off as Denver shocked the NFL with a 6-0 start.

The Broncos (6-2) have suddenly hit the skids, dropping their second straight with a 28-10 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday. Denver's rushing attack was nonexistent against the Steelers, Kyle Orton threw three interceptions and a dependable defense wore down over the final quarter.

A once-flourishing team is now faltering.

Don't look now, but the San Diego Chargers are closing ground in a hurry in the AFC West. Denver's one-time 3½-game lead has been whittled to one.
