The Broncos last road game of the season, and it is sure to be a tough one. With the Terrible Towels waving all over the place and the offense clicking on all cylinders, this will be a tough game to win.

In my opinion, this game is going to come down to the defense of both teams. Which ever unit comes up with the biggest play will most likely win the game.

With how the Broncos defense and the Steelers offense, this game could turn into either a defensive battle or a shootout. It is difficult to say which one it will be.

While the Broncos running game might struggle a bit, I can see them bouncing back. This is especially true if C.J. Anderson ends up playing in the game. I think he could make a huge difference.

For my bold predictions, I say that the Broncos pick off Ben Roethlisberger two times in the game and do enough to keep the wide outs in check, but I think at least one of the Steelers’ wide outs will record a 100 yard game.

With Osweiler in the game, I think he does bounce back and does enough to keep the team in the game. He certainly will not put up Star Wars numbers, but it will be a good effort.

As for the final score, I think this game will need overtime. It will be then that the Broncos will score on a field goal and then the defense provides the final stop.
