These are to many points for the Steelers to lay on the road. Tebow only needs to play error free and the Broncos can keep this close.

As much as I loved the Tebow story during his winning streak proving all the talking heads on ESPN wrong, the jig is up!!! Tebow just doesn't have the ability to stretch a defense downfield and Pitt is gonna load up the box and protect the edges with their great linebackers so there will be no where to run. Pitt will win this one by 21 by doing nothing but playing great defense and setting the offense up with short fields.

Pitt's Defense is not near the calibur that it was in years past. I like Pittsburgh to pull out the win but 10 points seems a little high. Especially on the road where they have been subpar. There are better games to bet on Sunday.

FYI - the Ryan Clark illness will not hurt the Steelers D as much as you might think.  Ryan Mundy is a very capable fill-in.  Look at what he did in KC when he had to play most of the game....  8 tackles, 3 assists and an interception.

Plus, he has Troy right next to him to pick up any slack.

Steelers D is not the problem..  they should keep Tebow in check.

It's the Steelers O that worries me..  how are they going to score with a gimpy Ben and with Redman as the feature back..

The more I look at this the more I like the Under!

Steelers will be ready for this game, all the hype on injuries for pitt is a front for more denver cash to roll in. 

Pitts D might score more than Denver O in this game.

Just think Pitt takes an early lead and denver will be chasing the rest of game. Tebow will try to force a couple of passes and that will be his down fall, leaving Big Ben with a short field is a big NoNo

PITT- the chalk   24-13 

Big fan of this site and the people.  First post

Sure hope Big Daddy post for playoffs luv that cat, been riding him since Boise St backed door covered Iowa St (Senaca Wallace)several years back.

I agree, if there's a concern for the steelers in this game it's definitely their offense, not their defense. This bronco team plays decent defense, still i think they score 20 which i believe will give them a cover vs. a horrible broncos offense.

I understand what you are saying but be careful...  I am a die hard steelers fan and I am concerned with the offense.  I didnt like the way they finished the season.  (going back to the SF game, with which they still had Mendenhall)

I think the Steelers will win but it will be closer than most think.

I am thinking 17-13 type of game.  So be careful with the chalk....

yo fellas.  i dont often post. i just read and appreaciate the insight.

and i will say this first i am a homer living just outside of pittsburgh but i bet against the steelers all the time when i feel the need. i actually had cleveland in this game as i had baltimore over cincy. i knew it was gonna be that kinda game.and that balt would beat cincy.

anyway

but steelers win and cover here imo. everyone on here that is saying steelers barely beat cleveland has to remember its a division rival and browns have a good D just a horrible O. browns bring their A game everytime for the steelers. plus steelers as other teams do on last game are scoreboard watching. they knew baltimore had game in hand against cincy. so they coasted to a win but not cover. but its the playoffs and steelers will bring it the whole game and 9 points in reality is less than 2 score a TD and FG and they cover do u really think they dont get the 2 scores against denver.

good luck all. im just sayin.

Jesus is no match for a solid defense like Pitt's.
That said, not touching this game.

    Let's face Ben can barely throw, but he still manages to have a better passer rating than Tebow. Tebow will be forced to win with his arm, because he's not running away from the Steeler's "D". See Steelers pounding the rock and throwing short passes to maintain long time consuming drives all afternoon. DB's like Champ Bailey will be forced to bring coverage closer to the line to thwart the Steelers advance. Ben will finally find an open receiver behind the coverage. Of course, Troy P. will bring    one back to "the House" compliments of Mr. Tebow. The only way to Broncos advance is if Elway suites up and plays. And that ain't happening. Denver is one of  the worst teams to make the playoffs in recent years. The Broncos are extremely lucky as the Steelers have 2 handicapps: a) numerous injuries and b) getting 9 points. Here's a fun fact for you players willing to commit your hard earn dollars on Denver.  Denver is 1 - 7 ATS this season in all their home games!  Anyway, I'm seeing the Steelers winning by 10 to 13 points.

PITTSBURGH - 9 (LARGE!)

the play is the under huge fellas... the ONLY way this game goes over is by pick 6 fumble 6... smart play is the under .. denver pretty much got blanked by kc if you take away the muffed punt.. 9-3 10-3 game... maybe a late late touchdown but this game goes under 17 if the ball is protected i believe... i dont see denver scoring more than 3, maybe 6

Big Ben will go all out this weekend. He is not 100% but he will be better than the last two games considering they're not as important.  Tebow will face Steelers' tough defense.  For a QB who can't throw much and not able to run.. he will be quite confused.  Don't care what people say.. a rookie is a rookie.. Pittsburgh will not stop here.  Teasing Pittsburgh with NO

Great minds think alike, I have the same exact teaser.

Locally it's Stillers -8 1/2 and O/U of 34.

I think Ben R is playing a little game witht he media about a setback in his injury. Supposedly he reinjured it in the 3rd QTR of the Browns game. What I saw was Ben missing receivers in the first half and improved in the second half even though there was a few drops bu recievers. Take som attention from Tebow and say Ben is not 100%. Gaming Denver and the media. Stillers up early and then the defense scores on a clueless Tebow.

Give the points and take the over.
