The Steelers (7-2-1) are set to tackle the Broncos (Four-6) Sunday afternoon at Mile Excessive Stadium in Denver, Colorado.
Because the Steelers have a superior file, there is no such thing as a method they’re going into the Four:25 kickoff considering there’s even a distant risk they are going to lose. In different phrases, mere hours earlier than deer searching season begins in Western, Pa., the large recreation which might be the Steelers’ gamers may fall prey to the entice the Broncos have set for them within the mountains of Colorado.
That’s proper, Sunday’s contest is a type of notorious highway entice video games head coach Mike Tomlin’s groups at all times succumb to this time of 12 months.
However to cite Dwight Schrute: “False.” The Steelers don't fall prey to entice video games in November. No, Steelers gamers often roam round visiting stadiums with no compass and with no clue in September, a time of 12 months after they’re most weak to assaults from Eagles, Dolphins and Bears (sure, THAT recreation). Reality: Bears eat beets (and Steelers). Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
This isn’t to say the Broncos aren’t a formidable animal able to bucking the Steelers proper off of their six-game winning-streak. Tomlin mentioned as a lot at his press convention on Tuesday, a time of the week when he makes upcoming opponents look like a mix of the ‘78 Steelers and ‘07 Patriots (Tremendous Bowl additional not included). However Tomlin wasn’t off-base together with his reward for Denver.
This actually is one battle-tested workforce, a workforce whose six losses have come towards opponents with a mixed file of 34-18. The Broncos have misplaced to the Chiefs (twice), Rams, Texans, and the Ravens again when everybody thought they had been good.
The Broncos protection contains linebacker Von Miller, who has 10 sacks on the season. It additionally has Bradley Chubb, a rookie linebacker with 9 sacks.
Did you see what Miller did final Sunday to Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers, when he hopped up on the line of scrimmage to intercept a type of fast little receiver screen-type passes? What number of instances has Terrell Suggs accomplished that to Ben Roethlisberger? How a lot does Roethlisberger like to throw these sorts of passes? If you happen to mentionedlots” in each circumstances, you'd be right.
Case Keenum is a quarterback able to taking his workforce to a convention title recreation, which he did final season as a member of the Vikings. Phillip Lindsay is a younger operating again lower from the identical material because the Panthers Christian McCaffrey, a participant who sort of had his method with Pittsburgh’s protection again on November eight. And, clearly, Emmanuel Sanders is a very good large receiver, who would love nothing higher than to stay it to his previous workforce.
Additionally, there’s Denver’s altitude that, in-case you weren’t conscious, is basically, actually excessive (sure, even greater than Pittsburgh’s Mt. Washington neighborhood). Then there’s the Steelers historical past of taking part in in Denver, a historical past that doesn’t embrace a complete lot of victories—Tim Tebow beat them there.
Luckily, these aren’t your September Steelers. These are your October, November and December Steelers, full with a thick and hardened shell, one sturdy sufficient to outlive one or two falls off of a very indignant and bucking Bronco.
Perhaps the Steelers win ugly like they did towards the Jaguars final Sunday. Perhaps they lose. However it doesn't matter what occurs, it received’t occur towards a helplessly inferior opponent (the entice recreation narrative is extra appropriate for the Raiders in Oakland two weeks later—a complete different factor, yikes), and it received’t be as a result of the Steelers traveled to Denver with out their compass and with out their armor.
