Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Denver Broncos Details
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Denver Broncos
The Steelers and Broncos are two of the most consistently successful teams in the NFL. The teams have both appeared in the Super Bowl eight times, which ties them for second among NFL teams. The Broncos last appeared in the Super Bowl in 2016 (Super Bowl 50), which they won over the Carolina Panthers. The Steelers’ last appearance in the Super Bowl was in 2011 (Super Bowl XLV), which they lost to the Green Bay Packers. Pittsburgh’s last championship win came in 2008, when they won Super Bowl XLIII over the Arizona Cardinals.
Since 2004, Ben Roethlisberger has started at quarterback for the Steelers. Big Ben has led the Steelers to two of their Super Bowl victories, and his .710 career winning percentage is one of the best in NFL history. The Steelers’ primary running back, Le’Veon Bell, was a steal for the team in the second round of the draft. He consistently ranks among the top rushers in the league, and has been to two Pro Bowls since he started for the Steelers in 2013.
The Broncos have been through some changes since their win in Super Bowl 50. Most notably, Peyton Manning’s retirement has left them with a hole to fill at quarterback, and the team is still waiting for a suitable replacement. Denver’s defense, however, can be good enough to carry the team.
Historic Broncos vs. Steelers Games
2005 NFC Championship: Roethlisberger, in just his second NFL season, was near perfect in the NFC Championship game against the Broncos. He had two touchdown passes, a rushing touchdown, and no interceptions. He finished with a passer rating of 124.9. The Steelers’ defense was also able to take advantage of turnovers from Denver quarterback Jake Plummer. The Steelers defeated the Broncos 34-17 to advance to Super Bowl XL, where they defeated the Seattle Seahawks. Roethlisberger's Super Bowl win made him the youngest quarterback--just 23 years old--to win in the Super Bowl, and the Steelers ended a title drought going back to 1979.
2015 NFC Divisional Playoffs: In Peyton Manning’s last playoff run, he helped lead the Broncos to a comeback win over the Steelers. Denver was down by a point late in the game, but their defense forced a Steelers fumble and put the ball in Manning’s hands. He led a drive that the Broncos finished with a one yard touchdown run. The victory was Denver’s first of their playoff run that took them to Super Bowl 50, where they defeated the Carolina Panthers.
When do the Steelers play the Broncos?
The Broncos and Steelers play in different divisions of the AFC. The Broncos play in the AFC West and the Steelers play in the North. The NFL has a rotating scheduling system that means teams not in the same division won’t play each other every year. The two teams can also meet in the first three rounds of the playoffs, as they have previously.
