Broncos Hot Start

In the simplest terms, the Denver Broncos have shocked many with their hot start this season. They are one of the best teams against the spread with a 3-1 record. Teddy Bridgewater has been leading the way for them as one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the league. He has a QBR of 65.6, which is the fifth-best in the league.

Despite injuries that the team has sustained, they have been able to overcome them. They are getting great campaigns from players like Melvin Gordon, Javonte Williams, and Noah Fant on offense. As for their defense, they have taken a huge step from the 2020 season and are the second-best team in points allowed per game. They are also in the Top-5 for the least total yards allowed.

Steelers Struggles

The Steelers, on the other hand, are not the team that they were last season. Ben Roethlisberger is struggling beyond belief with just over 1,000 yards on the season to go with four interceptions. With Big Ben starting to slow down, he is bringing the offense down with him, which just won’t match up well with this Broncos defense.

The offense has looked horrendous across the board. They rank in the bottom five of the league in points, rushing yards, and total yards per game. Also, like the Broncos, they have different injuries lingering as well on the offense that, unlike the Broncos, have not been able to overcome.

The game starts at 1:00 p.m. EST on Sunday and will be broadcast on the FOX Network.
