The irony of this game is that even though Peyton Manning’s season has been marred by injury, Ben Roethlisberger is more beat up. Roethlisberger is dealing with a right shoulder injury that prevented him from throwing any deep passes during the fourth quarter of the Steelers’ win over the Bengals.
If Roethlisberger can’t throw deep against the Broncos, then the Steelers will have a difficult time against a stout Broncos defense. Scary thought for Roethlisberger: The Broncos’ defense led the NFL in sacks with 52.
Manning must be concerned facing a Steelers defense that has produced 48 sacks, third most in the league. Don’t be surprised if Brock Osweiler relieves Manning or Landry Jones takes Roethlisberger’s place in a game that figures to be physical.
It’s difficult to pick the Steelers, who have a seriously banged-up quarterback (Roethlisberger), wide receiver (Antonio Brown) and running back (DeAngelo Williams).
The last time these two teams played. The Steelers ripped apart the Bronco’s secondary. In that game the Steelers had Brown at wide receiver and the Bronco’s were missing both of their starting safety’s. That has reversed itself as the Bronco’s are health and the Steelers will be without their best receiver.

With the injuries on offense the Steelers just won’t be able to keep up…Live betting tip. If the Steelers have to go to Jones at QB…make a major live bet on the Bronco’s.
