Regardless of their 4-6 record, the Denver Broncos represent a significant challenge for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12. While many fans will have fond memories of the Steelers AFC Championship victory at Mile High in 2006, trips to that stadium have generally not gone well for Pittsburgh as of late and Mike Tomlin is 1-4 in his five visits to Denver since 2007.
The Broncos might not have the talents of Peyton Manning under center anymore, but they still possess one of the league’s better defenses thanks to players like Von Miller and his impressive rookie teammate Bradley Chubb. After a surprising road victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11, Denver still has hope that postseason football remains a possibility for them in 2018 and Pittsburgh should be prepared for a team fighting for their playoff lives on Sunday.
Given the strength of the Steelers schedule over the last three weeks of the season, they cannot afford to drop games like this if want they a bye during wildcard weekend. However, should their offense score over 28 points against the Broncos, it should be good enough for the win considering Denver has only scored more 27 points once this season.
