When the Broncos have the ball
Case Keenum, the Broncos off season Quarterback acquisition from the Minnesota Vikings who rode in on a white horse, has not been playing “lights out.” For lack of a better description, he is your typical game manager with the ability to present a splash play every now and then. But the intermediate passing game allowing the receivers those YAC (yards after the catch) yards has become his bread and butter.
Even with good receivers in Emmanuel Sanders and rookie Courtland Sutton, the strength of the Broncos is their running game, which exploded against the Chargers last week.
The four running backs lead by Phillip Lindsay, all bring different aspects to the offense that have to be defended. Gap integrity, backs out of the backfield and screen plays will be the Steelers points of emphasis in making the Broncos a one horse team.
The Steelers defensive front seven will be the reason that the Steelers escape Mile High Stadium with the win leaving the Broncos busted, disgusted and can’t be trusted.
