Steelers @ Broncos

Recommended Posts



The teams last met in a 2015 Divisional Playoff Game in Denver, won by the eventual Super Bowl champion Broncos, 23-16. The Steelers have lost three straight games in Denver, two in the postseason and one in the regular season; they last won in the Mile High City on November 9, 2009.

The Steelers are 10-0-1 in their last 11 road games, with the only blemish a tie in Week 1 of this season at Cleveland. All but two of the 10 wins have been one-score games. Overall, the Steelers are 27-5-1 in their last 33 games, with six consecutive wins.

Seven of the Broncos' 10 games have been decided by seven points or fewer, with all five home games decided by four points or fewer (2-3 record). Denver has dropped its last three home games by a combined nine points; the team has not lost four consecutive home games since 1993-1994 and hasn't done so in a single season since 1990.

After throwing four interceptions in an eight-game stretch, Ben Roethlisberger was intercepted three times in Jacksonville on Sunday. Roethlisberger's 3202 passing yards in 2018 are the most he's ever had through 10 team games in any season of his career.

After throwing INTs in each of the first eight games this season, Case Keenum has been giveaway-free in back-to-back contests and has a streak of 85 straight passes without being picked off. Since Week 5, Phillip Lindsay is averaging 3.7 yards per rush in two home games compared to 5.9 in four road contests.

Including postseason, Denver is 19-11-1 all-time versus Pittsburgh. The Broncos' .629 winning percentage versus the Steelers is the highest by any AFC team against them since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.

This is certainly the kind of game that the Steelers tend to lose, but... there's one game on the schedule I have circled that they are absolutely looking over a little bit later. I think they outgrind Denver here in a close matchup.

:Broncos: 20

ahhhh, fuck yeah buddy, we won somehow. 5-6 now with a relatively easy schedule down the stretch after the murderer's row we've faced so far. From facing KC twice, the Rams,, the Chargers, the Steelers, the Chiefs and the Seahawks...and now we have the Bengals, 49ers, Browns and Raiders in the next 4. We're still not good, but the schedule gives us a chance to sneak into the wildcard, albeit a small one. I don't honestly believe we'll make any noise, but the odds have gone up from 0.01 to like... 2 percent.
