The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to win football games, now winners of six in a row following a thrilling last second victory in Jacksonville. The Steelers are riding high as of late, currently playing with a multi-game lead in the AFC North with a tough schedule remaining for 2018. Week 12 finds Pittsburgh traveling to the Mile High City to take on sub-.500 Denver Broncos squad.
According to ESPN, the Steelers hold a 59.9% chance to win going into Sunday via their match-up predictor. With a majority of the national media picking the Steelers to emerge victorious, Pittsburgh undoubtedly is the favorite going into Sunday’s contest. However, the Steelers have historically struggled in Denver with their last victory at Mile High Stadium coming in 2009.
Much has changed since then, but Denver will turn the clocks back and don their throwback helmets with their orange color rush uniforms for their game against Pittsburgh. (Full disclosure, they’re pretty sweet).
Although the Steelers and Broncos share the same conference, they haven’t met often, with only five meetings between the two since 2009 including the playoffs. What does Denver do well? Where are their faults? How realistic is an upset for the orange crush come Sunday?
