Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have been one of the most consistent teams in recent years in the AFC. However, they have struggled against the Broncos. Gary Kubiak’s team has won 12 of 17 games since 1985, including one playoff match three years ago with Tim Tebow at quarterback. It will be the first game of the series in Pittsburgh since 2006, and the Steel Curtain has not been able to beat the Broncos at home in 18 years. In the NFL betting Odds, the Steelers are favorites at -1.0 to win this game, but in the last five versus Denver are 1-4 SU and 1-4 ATS.
Player to watch: After the retirement of linebacker Jason Worilds, who was the leader of the team with 7.5 sacks in 2014, rookie Bud Dupree would be responsible to pressure Peyton Manning. It will be a tough mission for the former player of Kentucky, as the Broncos allowed the fewest sacks in the league last year (17).
