Coming off a win against Cincy last week the Steelers may be smelling blood in the water and looking to make a move in the AFC North.
Kick off is set for 4:05 PM ET pitting league leaders in offense (Pittsburgh) and defense (Denver) against each other. Game of the week?
The Broncos are looking to finish strong and grab that second spot in the AFC behind New England. It won’t be easy to stake their claim this week as they visit a surging Pittsburgh team.
Last week was a disappointment as they lost to Oakland at home. The defense was up to the task but the legendary Brock Osweiler was not.
This week they are going to need a lot more from him because Denver is likely to have to to score some points if they want to stay in the game against one of the hottest offenses in the league. Keeping him upright would be a nice start.
This might be Brock’s last shot…at least for this season and maybe they let him open things up a bit and take advantage of the weapons that he has.
If Denver can win this one with their defense it will be very impressive.
Few teams are hotter than Pittsburgh right now. They have won four of their last five and have scored better than 3o points in all of those games.
Even though this is their last home game of the season this is also probably their most difficult of their remaining three. With each week they are looking more and more like a contender even though they are likely to be a Wild Card team.
The offense gets the accolades but this is a solid defensive group. They give up an even 20ppg – 11th in the league. They do get shredded through the air though.
Pittsburgh is on a run and they have been cashing too, 8-4-1 ATS for the season. That spread may look a little big but Denver is not as intimidating overall without Manning back there.
The defense will have to do some of the work though. It can’t be all on Big Ben.
