Could this be the last playoff run for Peyton Manning, who is going to get the start Sunday with 1 seed? After a hard hitting Wild Card game, do the Steelers have any fight left in them? The Steelers might not have Ben Roethlisberger and top receiver for this game, check back to the site for more updates throughout the week. Let’s take a a look at the NFL Divisional Round Picks for this game.
Big question marks at quarterback for both teams so this looks to be a defensive battle. Pittsburgh beat Denver 34-27 in Week 15, but this is a different game without Roethlisberger and Brown who got hurt in the Wild Card game in Cincinnati, It doesn’t look like Pittsburgh offense is going to be the same.
In this NFL Divisional Round Picks matchup I’m looking for a ton of running plays. Denver has the third-ranked rush defense in the NFL. I think the Broncos learned their lesson in week 15 matchup with Steelers blowing that lead, and I don’t see it happening again.
Denver has opened up as a 6 point favorite, and the total is at has not been posted yet. Steelers are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 playoff games. Broncos are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss. Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings. I’m going to lay the points in this NFL Divisional Round Picks with the Denver Broncos as they move on to the Championship game.
