Steelers Vs. Broncos Score: Defense Holds Peyton Manning In Check, Game Tied 0-0 In First Quarter

The Pittsburgh Steelers held Peyton Manning to 44 yards and forced a Willis McGahee fumble as they held the Broncos scoreless in the first quarter of Sunday night's contest against the Denver Broncos on the road at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Manning was sacked twice as the Steelers were able to penetrate the offensive line early and hurry the future Hall-of-Famer, who is playing his first game since coming off of neck surgery after sitting out the entire 2011 season.

On offense, the Steelers couldn't find any rhythm -- quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was 2-of-2, but the team managed only one first down as Roethlisberger was sacked once. The game has the makings of a defensive stand-off where the team that makes the fewest mistakes and avoids turnovers will have the best chance at winning.
