Coming off a ratings-rich playoff game in January, 2012, the Broncos added the highly popular Peyton Manning to a rising team. Put his return to the NFL after missing the 2011 season with the always-popular Steelers fan demographic, and you've got a pretty popular game.

It's just unfortunate it happens to be in Denver.

The Steelers are 7-13-1 against Denver all time (starting in 1970), including a 2-0 clip in Denver on Sunday night (1991, 2007). A crowd of over 75,000 is expected tonight, and odds are good they're out right now, preparing in their own way for the festivities.

The Steelers added a new offensive coordinator, marking the first time in Mike Tomlin's six-year reign as head coach they've changed up the position. Todd Haley is expected to emphasize more of a balanced approach and use the multiple multi-faceted weapons among the Steelers' offensive skill players.

Defensively, the Steelers will be without OLB James Harrison, who has been hindered by a knee injury this preseason. Chris Carter will replace him, making his first career start.

The Broncos are relatively healthy, only missing OG Chris Kuper, who broke his forearm in the preseason.
