Default The Steelers will go into Denver and win and improve to 6-2 if? (poll inside)

I didn't think these two weeks would ever go by, but they're moving along quite nicely.


Now, for the game Monday night. The Steelers come into Denver on a 4 game winning streak with a very "formidable" offense, an improving defense, but with a "suspect" special teams.

The Broncos come in after having been blasted by the Baltimore Ravens, so they'll be looking to get that taste out of their mouths. As I stated in an earlier thread, this is a HUGE opportunity for the Steelers to get some separation from the rest of the AFC North, but a win in Denver is very important to say the very least.

Monday Night, battle between two of the top teams in the AFC, 5-2 vs. 6-1. That being said, what may prove to be the most important factor in a Steelers win on Monday Night?

FINISH THE GAME. Play hard for 60 minutes - not 30, not 45. That's another reason the Broncos have been winning - they play hard until the clock hits triple-zero.

Ben and our WRS need to step up in this game, cus they have a pretty good defense.

I put Ben/WR play, but really the key is to have an offense that moves the ball consistently and doesn't let them get good field position all the time. Not a jerky "80-yard-drive, then 4 three-and-outs-in-a-row" offense that lets them control the ball and take the fight to us. Also, finishing drives on offense -- not settling for field goals or turning the bal over in the red zone -- is going to be extra important in a game like this.

I have no doubt the defense can shut down Kyle Orton. Just a matter of not putting Denver in a position to score without doing a lot of work.

I think Ike will stick Marshall with Troy over the top and Dick LeBeau will dial it up on Orton.

It's all about the pressure on Orton and the DB Play.

Ben goes back in to Denver and does his second best John Elway impression.

Special teams. Lack of decent special teams play is what has allowed teams to keep the games close with the Steelers the last two games. Plus Denver's kick returner, Eddie Royal, has already busted off 1 or 2 for touchdowns.

Despite each teams record I think Pittsburgh is the better team, so I think we need to not turn over the ball. I believe Denver is +6 in that category.
