Default Steelers favorite over the Broncos

I couldnt beleive to see that the Steelers are favorite by 3 over the Broncos in Denver . Usually the home team with the better record are the favorites . I hope the Steelers dont look past this game for the Bengals on the 15th

I prefer the underdog role, but I guess it doesn't matter really. It's probably just a superstition that I've developed by now.

Don't care whether they're faves or underdogs personally. As long as they go out on that field on Monday night, play kick ass Steelers football and come away with the W, I'll be happy.

Right now the Ravens are favored by 3 over Cincinnati, who are at home and a game ahead in the division and a win already over Baltimore.

Sometimes I think the people that set these lines are all on mind-altering drugs.

I know the Broncos were exposed a little yesterday, but Denver at home is always tough. And Cincy at home will be tough, also.

That means the Steelers would be favored by 6 if they were at home. Pretty much right IMO. The Steelers took down the undefeated Vikings and are on a win streak, while the Broncos are coming off a loss to a formerly 3-3 team.

Should be a good game and hopefully the Steelers come out on top. But really, if you said its gonna be a defensive struggle and the real duel will between offenses of Ben, Ward, Holmes, Miller, Mendenhall vs. Orton, Marshall, Royal, Moreno, Stokley..........I think the Steelers get the edge.

I liked seeing the breakdown of Orton's passes, his percentage was 70% under 10 yards, and were significantly lower anything beyond that.. Keep him from throwing these screen passes, and the game is ours.

I think the first half will be low scoring but look out in the second.Just like the Rats we will wear them down.

If the Steelers D plays like the Ravens D did yesterday (aka play like usual), they should be able to hold back the Broncos' offense.

The Bronco's have a solid defense that showed a couple holes yesterday. They overachieved to reach 6-0. I'm not surprised they have this game as even (Denver getting 3 for being home).

This will be a very tough game for the Steelers regardless. If the offense can't get things rolling it could be a long day.

I think a lot of people are still expecting the Broncos to collapse, or at least turn into a .500 team from here on out. Which, although I have to give them credit for playing out of their minds lately, is realistically probably about their true talent level.
