It will be hard to bet against Tim Tebow here. The Broncos may not win, but they will keep it close. Take the Broncos here.

If Jesus playes fumble free then this game goes down to the wire.  But i'm a steelers fan, so i'm going to say lay the points and try and vision what the Lions did to Denver.

I will take the points here. Pitts are not healthy on both side of the ball to win this impressively. The key here is defense for the Broncos, its basicly come down to contain Ben and Hines Ward. I do see a slow starting 1st half and down to the 4 Qtr with TD win for Pittsburg.

Den +9

Pittsburgh's Defense will win the game
Whatever they get from Ben & Redman will be gravy.
In my life I have never seen a worse Offense than Denver's - entering into a playoff game.
Strikes me
Humpty Dumpty got broke in Buffalo and since the Ski -friend was made public
Tebow is 0-2 without a clue

Denver to win SU with a Japanese "yo" (?)

Tebow will have the game of his life then go on to beat the Patriots the following week via a miraculous underdog win.

Trust me on this, Tebow is going to prove everyone wrong!

Denver SU and over 34.5. They're going to score 30+ points by themselves.

Horrendous matchup for Denver.  Run defense is the key for anybody facing Denver.  Pitts 8th in the league there...1st in pass defense.  How will Denver move the ball??  17 points by Ben and they cover.

DEN +9 (.5u) - i like them even better if Tebow was benched. The Steelers are banged up, key players are out, and the Browns nearly beat them Sunday. SCORE: Steelers 20 - Broncos 14.

Denver gets the garbage kicked out of them. Pitt minus whatever. Pitt has enough defense to shut down Denver. Denver cant defend well against the pass. I would take the under but I am afraid of big plays by Pitt.

It's half-past Tebow time.

Now it's playoff time, and that means Steeler time. The template has been set for how to stop Tebow, who is unlikely to turn into an effective pocket passer in less than a week. Pittsburgh should embarrass Denver's dog-and-pony show of an offense.

Pittsburgh -9

Pittsburgh was already in bad shape with injuries and now they lose Mendenhall...  I am sure that Pitt can slow down or even stop Tebow but I dont know how they can score enough to cover 9 points..  They couldn't even cover 6.5 at Cleveland.

Ben will grit it out and pull out a road win here but I am taking the 9 points.

Den +9. 

Pitt 20 - Den 16

Clevelands pass defense is ranked 2nd in the league, Denver is 17th i believe.

Your statement would make more sense if you replace hines ward with walace.  Hines isnt the same threat he used to be.  Broncos dont fear him, thats for sure.  Brown and Wallace are the go to guys now!

Gotta have one crazy game in the bunch. It is the nfl playoffs! If the line hits double digits...double digit home dogs do well in the nfl no matter who they are 8-0 ats this year to be exact.  Pitt  hasnt really beat up anybody lately and I still think we expect pomolommloo or harrison to be coming up with patented pick 6s or fumble returns tds like we used to see. I got news for you...they are beat up and godbow has one last prayer left in em and hes playing on sunday which makes the almighty furious. Not really i just think they might win but definitely cover 24-20. Den and OV for the large!!!! Trust me im a doctor!!!

Mendenhall lost for the season in a somewhat meaningless game last week, Mewelde Moore has been out for 2 games, and may not play in this one, and Roethlisberger's still gimpy. This only leaves the passing game - and I hear the Broncos have a couple of young upstarts in Brian Dawkins and Champ Bailey

Plus, Ryan Clark "all of a sudden" has a sickle cell trait that makes him susceptible to organ damage if he exerts himself at high altitude — and the Broncos’ stadium is a mile above sea level.

The Lord works in mysterious ways..............

Denver +9

Denver M/L - small

Over 34.5

and hopefully Hines Ward doesn't get hit by a lightning bolt.........

good luck all!!!!!!!!!!

      I'm going under  here with my totals bet.  Pitt has numerous injuries ,especially Ben,which should play nicely on the under selection. After the last 4 games, the Broncos point production has gone down as teams have wised up to Mr. Tebow's antics. The Steelers D should contain him here. Inspite of the running back injuries, the Steelers will dig up a warm body, and keep it on the ground for most of the game. All those variables along with playing on the grass in cold weather. Seeing the score as 17 - 6.

UNDER  34.5

This one could get ugly for tebow. Their defense might keep them close considering how banged up the steelers are, but eventually after watching the 6th three and out in a row i think the defense gives up, or begs for john fox to put brady quinn in. I would tease this to pitt -2.5 with something else just in case, but tebows in for a very, very, very long day vs. a very good steelers defense.

polamalu is gonna eat tebow for lunch in this game. The only passes i've seen tebow effectively complete all year are to his left, don't think polamalu won't cheat. That nice little down and in route that he was able to complete vs. a terrible patriots defense have o percent chance of being completed with polamalu in the middle of the field. Tebow is literally the worst nfl quarterback i have ever seen in all my time watching the game, this includes the likes of jamarcus russell, ryan leaf, and achilles smith. The magic ends this week for tebow, reality sets in, and the reality is that the kid sucks moose balls at the qb position and only won because he played bad teams and has a good defense.
