Steelers Vs. Broncos Halftime Update: Defense Flusters Peyton Manning, Pittsburgh Leads 10-7

The Pittsburgh Steelers' defense lifted the team to a 10-7 halftime lead and held Peyton Manning to zero touchdown passes in the first half of the Sunday night football contest against the Denver Broncos.

No one knew what to expect from Manning coming into the game following major surgery, and the Steelers are making life difficult for the veteran signal-caller, holding him to 98 yards through the air. Leading the receiving for the Steelers was Antonio Brown, who had three catches for 55 yards.

Ben Roethlisberger was more productive for the Steelers, connecting on 9-of-17 passes including a four-yard touchdown pass to tight end Heath Miller. Third-year back Jonathan Dwyer had just 19 yards on five carries.

The story of the half was defense, as both teams had less than 150 yards.
