This is going to be one heck of a game, and it is the one game this week that we really just don’t want to handicap and just want to watch. But, gun to our heads, we are going to be choosing the Steelers, just because we think that they are going to have the more consistent of the two teams. There are just too many question marks that we have here for Denver, namely whether QB Peyton Manning is really going to be able to get the job done, especially against such a great defense. Pittsburgh is going to get its ground game going with the combination of RB Isaac Redman and RB Jonathan Dwyer, and QB Ben Roethlisberger is set to have a great year in our eyes. This really is a tossup game in our eyes, but we just don’t feel all that comfortable backing the Broncos right now until Manning proves that he is ready to go.
