The Steelers got rolled over against the Packers on Sunday and are now 1-3 on the season. The loss to Green Bay was expected, as the Steelers offense continues to be a work in progress, and the defense wasn't going to completely limit Aaron Rodgers.
The Steelers return to Heinz Field on Sunday to face the 3-1 Broncos, who could be without starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, as he suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. Drew Lock would start in his place. While Denver's 3-1, their three wins came against the Giants, Jaguars and Jets, who have a combined record of 2-10.
According to Oddsshark.com, the Steelers are 1-point favorites against the Broncos and the over/under is 40 points.
The total has gone under in five of the Broncos' last six games and Denver is 6-1-2 against the spread in their last nine games against Pittsburgh. Denver is 6-0 against the spread in its last six games against sub-.500 teams and the Steelers are 2-8 against the spread in its last 10 vs plus-.500 teams.
The Steelers are 12-20-1 all-time against the Broncos. It's a good thing that this game is in Pittsburgh, as the Steelers are 1-5 under Mike Tomlin when facing the Broncos in Denver. The Steelers have won their last two games against the Broncos at Heinz Field.
Overall, the Steelers are 3-5 against the Broncos under Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger is 4-6 in his career against Denver.
