Steelers @ Broncos
No, it’s not Tebowmania anymore. It’s Case Keenum, Emmanuel Sanders, Phillip Lindsay, and Von Miller.
It’s no longer the Three B’s, either; it’s the ABC’s. Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger and James Connor travel to Denver to take on the Broncos in the Mile High City.
Denver has struggled a lot this season. It was a surprise that they pulled off the win over the Chargers last week. Well, I think that they can do it again.
They just need to stick to what’s working on offense, which is running the football. They need to find a way to limit the production of Antonio Brown and Juju Smith-Schuster, as well as James Connor.
The Broncos need to run the heck out of the football with Phillip Lindsay.
It’s going to be quite the battle and I expect the Broncos to win this one in a close score.

The Steelers are coming to the Mile High City to take on the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have quite the test coming up this week. One of the AFC’s premier teams is coming to town, and it’s going to take a near perfect game from the Broncos to win this one.
The Steelers boast a top 5 defense in the league, and have the 5 rated passing attack as well. With Big Ben under center, and his arsenal of weapons, Denver needs to play lock down on defense. Case cannot be forced to play from behind the whole game. If the defense can get an early stop and the offense can drive, I like the Broncos chances of staying in this one all afternoon.
With injuries in the secondary, it will be very important for the Broncos to get pressure on Ben. JuJu and AB will tear apart the defense if Roethlisberger is given too much time.
The Steelers need to play smart, take care of the ball, and stay off the penalty to sheet, and this game is theirs.
I’m going with the Steelers this week.

The Broncos look to seize momentum against a tough Pittsburgh team on Sunday.
With the Broncos offense steadily improving, this game may be closer than one would’ve guessed two months ago.
Pittsburgh plays the deep ball really well, so look for Philip Lindsay to have another big game. Jeff Heuerman will have an impact similar to the Houston game.
On defense, the biggest concern will be Pittsburgh’s passing attack. Denver is still very thin at cornerback, and Chris Harris Jr will have to lockdown Antonio Brown (who has had two solid weeks in a row).
Even with Brown getting his catches, the Broncos will control time of possession on offense, and will cap off their fifth win in a row.
