Manning and the Broncos Beat Steelers 31-19!

By Frank Byronn Glenn -- The last time the Steelers came to Denver it was for the play-off game that ended when Demaryius Thomas caught a pass from Tim Tebow and went 80 yards in the first possession in overtime to win it -- last year. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . That seemed like light years ago now --as fan favorite and media darling Tebow is long departed to the NY Jets, and Peyton Manning begins his come-back from  multiple necks surgeries at center in Denver. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . Obviously fans have a high degree of anticipation for watching Peyton Manning behind center -- its been a long time since John Elway was back there -- but what I actually anticipate most is seeing a Denver defense that was good last year -- when they had very little help from the offense -- play with a frenzy when they have Peyton Manning on offense, so they don't have to worry about getting burned once or twice a game.  The sacks, turn-overs, quarterback rushes and confusion they should be able to create with an all out push should easily more than make up for any occasional lapses on defense.  The Steelers will be a good team to go against out of the chute to get a feel for how it going to go this year.  Should be fun. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      . Broncos - Steelers  -- Sunday Night Football -- Coming up!  It's on.  War time!  Broncos - Steelers!  Denver and Peyton Manning win the toss -- so Manning is the tip of the spear of the attack against the Steelers. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . Broncos defense holds the Steelers to a field goal for 3 points.   Manning takes the Broncos 80 yards in twelve plays with no huddle for the TD. Broncos 7, Pittsburgh 3.   Demaryus Thomas made two big catches in the drive. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . Demaryus Thomas catches 71 yard scoring strike from Manning and Tracy Porter intercepts "Big Ben" and goes for the pick - 6 to ice the game.  I don't know what it looks like to anybody else, but it looks like the Broncos are great and Bronco fans are going to have a lot of fun this year.  Can't wait.  Hello, Atlanta!
