The regular season is finally here and our Pittsburgh Steelers are ready to start the year out on Sunday Night Football in Denver. This one could go down as the most watched Sunday Night NFL game in history, or at the very least in a long, long time.
The subplots of this one are bountiful to say the least: The return of Peyton Manning after missing the 2011 season, the rematch of the playoff game last year, Todd Haley’s new offense, Ryan Clark out of the game, the return of Mike Wallace, the status of James Harrison, how will the new starters on offense and defense handle the primetime lights, just to name a few.
Here is the lowdown on the game information:
