NFL  > Pittsburgh Steelers  > Matching Up Against The Broncos. How Do The Steelers Do?
January 4, 2012, 09:34 AM
A blog Article I wrote about this sundays game against Denver. I've got a bunch of stats and such that explain all of my opinions and such. In a nutshell, the Steelers certainly win but because the Offense is so banged up from the season long injury plagued Offensive Line + Ben's bum ankle + lack of running back depth... it won't be a blowout. Something like 17-13, 24-13 sounds about right

I think it will be a close game as well, but I don't see tebow running alot this game..if he does, he could find himself concussed...lol

Pittsburgh has a short week, playing on Saturday, they travel to Denver, one of their players won't make it because he has sickle cell anemia, severely affecting his play at altitudes. Do we ever know if Roethlisberger is healthy, how can we trust him, he denies everything. Then you have your key running back Mendenhall out for the rest of the year. Fear not Pittsburgh, Denver is only in the playoffs because no one else from the AFC West wanted to be there, Oakland choking down the stretch and San Diego forgetting once again that the season starts in September. I'm sure if the Broncos had their druthers (losing their last 2 games) they would rather be fishing or vaccinating people in a 3rd world country.

The Steelers should win this one.

a 60% Ben is better than a 100% Batch. There are a lot of ifs tagged to this game. Denver CAN win folks, don't think for a second they can't. However, IF all the IFs fall in alignment for Pittsburgh, they should win easily.

You know:

IF Troy , Harrison and Brett all play.

IF Ben is able to make it thru the game WITHOUT throwing INTs.

IF the Steelers can still establish a running game with Redman and Clay.....
