4 burning questions the Steelers must answer vs. the Broncos
By Andrew Falce
With the Steelers coming off a string of tough losses, the team will have to answer these four burning questions against the Broncos in week five.
The Steelers enter week five in what has to be classified as a must-win game for them. They have dropped the past three games and their season only gets tougher as the year goes on. The Broncos have a strong record, but they have some flaws that can be exploited.
The Steelers haven’t looked good though, so this game will be far from a cakewalk. Here are four burning questions the Steelers must answer in week five against the Broncos.
Can the Steelers stop a rejuvenated Miller?
It seemed as though Von Miller was in a relative decline the past few seasons, as his individual stats were beginning to dip. While still a good player, he was no longer the same player that opposing quarterbacks had to fear. This season has seen a different side of Miller though, as the Broncos star has looked reborn through the first four weeks of the year.
He has 4.5 sacks so far on the year and PFF has him graded at an 84.3 overall so far. Those numbers are strong, and it won’t be surprising for him to be an impact defender in this game. Add in the Steelers’ struggles along the offensive line, and it seems likely that Miller is an impact player in this game. He missed the contest last season with the team, but all signs point to him making up for that in 2021.
