Steelers at Broncos NFL Sunday Night Handicapping Tips

Despite Denver having a different look under center, Pittsburgh will be out for revenge Sunday September 9, 2012 at 8:20 PM in Denver as the Steelers visit the Broncos. Peyton Manning makes his regular season debut with the Broncos while Ben Roethlisberger looks to return the Steelers to the Super Bowl this season.

Steelers Stout Defense to Pose a Test for Manning

Pittsburgh has relied on its steel curtain defense for decades now and there is no reason why the defense will not be as strong in 2012 as it has been in the past. This could pose an incredible problem for the Broncos and new quarterback Peyton Manning. Everyone around the league is wondering how Manning will respond to being hit and of all the teams to face on opening day, the Steelers and their hard-hitting defense is not the best option.

Manning Makes Broncos Debut and Return to Football Field in Regular Season

Peyton Manning is taking two big steps at once today as he debuts for the Denver Broncos and returns to the football field during the regular season for the first time in over a year. Manning is coming off a season that saw him on the sidelines recovering from neck surgery and is in a uniform other than the Colts for the first time in his NFL career.

Bet365.com, a top online sportsbook, has the Steelers over the Broncos in Denver by +2 with the spread. The over/under is set at 45.5 points in favor of the Steelers and their stout defense. With Manning playing his first regular season game in over a year against arguably the toughest defense in the league, we will take Pittsburgh tonight over Denver.
