    Exclamation Key matchups for Steelers vs Broncos

    This game will certainly come down to who wins any one of many individual matchups on the interior lines, the cornerbacks, wide receivers.


    If the OT's don't win their battles up front, Ben will be running for his life.


    Ike Taylor and Keenan Lewis are going to have to stick and stay, not biting on the pump fake that Manning does so well.

    A huge matchup is Rainey vs the Broncos cover teams.

    The Steelers OT's vs the Broncos pass rushers is the biggest matchup in the game.........If Starks and Gilbert can keep Ben upright will be huge in this game.........But Haley and his game plan will be key as well.........Its going to be interesting to see what kind of plan Haley has to slow the Broncos pass rush...

    Rainey vs the coverage units is a big one. A special teams score can turn the tide in an instant.

    Biggest thing the Steelers corners need to do is look for the ball once it is in the air. Too many times, they have no idea where the ball is until it is too late.

    Our defense getting off the field after third down.

    Long drives, keeping the chains moving, keeping Peyton on the sidelines.

    Solid special teams play.

    A few turn-overs by the defense.

    A strong second half running game.

    Our secondary (minus Clark) vs Peyton and his WRs is by far the biggest key match up. It's obvious, but we will win or lose based on this match up.
