Previewing the Pittsburgh Steelers visit to Denver to face off with the Broncos on Sunday Night Football.

The Denver Broncos ended the Pittsburgh Steelers season last year and they'll be hoping for the same results when the two teams meet in Denver again this Sunday to open the new season. Oddsmakers have Denver as a two-point favorite to do just that. The Steelers will be traveling to Sports Authority Stadium at Mile High on Sunday evening as they open their season against the new look Broncos.

The Broncos will feature a very different looking offense from the one Pittsburgh saw in the playoffs last winter, as Peyton Manning will now be under center as opposed to the departed Tim Tebow. The defense will be relatively unchanged, though, and they'll be looking to put Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger under heavy pressure all night. They'll be missing linebacker D.J. Williams though, as he serves the first of his six game game drug suspension.

How Manning plays will be the story to watch, as it will be his first real game since January 2011. Mike Wallace just returned to Steelers practice as well, so his conditioning might be an issue for the Steelers. Rashard Mendenhall is also under close look after his ACL surgery.

The game will be aired on NBC at 8:20 PM ET.
