Monday Night Football Live Thread: Denver Broncos vs Pittsburgh Steelers

The Broncos Host The Steelers In A Battle Between Two Of The AFC's Best [Monday Night Football Live Thread]

11/9/09 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

The Steelers and Broncos are two of the top 4 teams in the AFC right now, along with the Colts and Patriots. There's a great chance that tonight's Monday Night Football matchup could have long-reaching implications, and the winner might even end up getting the #2 seed in the AFC once the playoffs come around.

The Steelers have already beaten the Vikings, who were previously undefeated, but now they're heading into Denver, one of the toughest places for road teams to play in the entire NFL.

The Broncos were perfect until last week, when they lost to the Ravens. They're looking to rebound tonight against another tough AFC North team, and they'll be at home this time, where they're still perfect for the year.

70% of FanIQ users say that the Steelers will win this one, by an average score of 25-21. You can watch the game on ESPN at 8:30 pm EST. If you are watching it, chat it up with us here, and as always, enjoy the game!

Bad call or not, The Steelers D took advantage of awful plays after that by Brett Favre.  You can't say that the Vikings didn't still have chances to win after that tripping call.  The defense put the game away.

With all do respect Kramer.... last win was put away in the 4th qtr by 2 bonehead plays by Brett Favre and an extremely fortunate poor call by an official on a Vikes apparent go ahead TD.

11/9/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Marry him. Get a engagement ring get down on one knee and propose to him ha ha.

Honestly, Gruden has been a nice rebuttal to Jaws's incompetence.  Jaws must be rubbing off on him.

I agree.....Denver's D looks tired, frustrated and defeated.

11/9/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Nighty night, Broncos!

11/9/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

Mendenhall is having a awesome game causes a false start comes right back with a 36 yard run.

11/9/09   |   zzj000   |   388 respect

I'm just hoping Little Ben doesnt give up a Pick 6 and let the Broncos back in this.............

11/9/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Another bad throw by Orton! That's his 3rd pick of the game.

11/9/09   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

Thanks a lot ESPN... this was entirely unnecessary...

11/9/09   |   zzj000   |   388 respect

Steelers 21 Denver 10

I can feel the COLTS lead for #1 Seed and Home Field thruout the AFC playoffs growing from 1 game to 2 as the seconds tick away!!!    hehehe

11/9/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Wow, that has to be the dumbest challenge I've ever seen.  It's still 4th down no matter what.

That's called an o-line failure, nothing Ben did to cause that.

Fast moving 1st half.

11/9/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

There was an offsides call against the Broncos that's not called.

11/9/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

I don't know why the Broncos picked up Mitch Berger.  Did they not see how mediocre at best he was with the Steelers last year?

 

11/9/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Ouch, Denver lost a challenge on that incomplete pass.

11/9/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

The Bronco's must really be worried about tonight's match-up they signed 15 year vet Ty Law on Friday.

The Steelers D will win this for Ryan Clark - a big hitter!

Watch for the Steelers offense and defense to dominate this week. They just don't lose on MNF.

This will be a one tough fought game tonight. Good Luck to both teams. But GO STEELERS put them Broncos in there coral.
