Peyton Manning made a successful NFL return from a year’s sabbatical, leading the Broncos past the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19 in his Denver debut Sunday night.
The Broncos are only missing one starter, the healthiest the team has been walking into Week 1 in recent years. The Steelers will be without James Harrison, Ryan Clark and possibly Rashard Mendenhall making them adjust their game plan against a Denver looking to exploit all weaknesses.
Pittsburgh’s defense presents a tough test for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos offense, while the Steelers’ offense is strong as well.
Save the skepticism on Peyton Manning’s health for somebody else. Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin doesn’t want to hear it.
One of the most storied NFL playoff teams ran into a rejuvenated Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Sorry, Pittsburgh Steelers.
The commemorative T-shirts and caps proclaiming the Denver Broncos 2011 AFC West champions sat mostly untouched in the team’s locker room Monday.
