The Steelers enter the game as eight- or nine-point favorites despite playing on the road, and losing starting running back Rashard Mendenhall to injury, and having a gimpy starting quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger. The Broncos limped into the postseason with three straight losses and an 8-8 overall record in the regular season. As with any game involving the Broncos this year, polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow will be the story for many fans; realistically, though, the only way for the Broncos to have a shot in this one is to keep Pittsburgh's injury-riddled offense at bay.
