The Denver Broncos squeaked into the playoffs by the skin of their teeth and thanks to some key losses by the Oakland Raiders. The Pittsburgh Steelers had a solid, yet underwhelming season and have looked shaky in their last few games as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has dealt with a nagging foot injury. They will meet in Denver on Sunday in the first round of the 2012 NFL playoffs.
The game will air nationally, beginning at 4:30 PM EST on Sunday, January 8. The broadcast team for the game will be Jim Nantz on play-by-play and Phill Simms as the color analyst. Despite the Steelers being heavily favored, this should be an interesting game to watch. Given that Roethlisberger and Denver's Tim Tebow are facing off, it should draw a healthy amount of viewers.
