Pittsburgh Steelers @ Denver Broncos Wildcard Weekend Free Pick: Denver’s defense is really solid and the Steelers have a beat up quarterback, their leading rusher on IR, and they aren’t very explosive anyway. The Steelers only scored 20 points per game this year. And yeah, there’s a little bit of the Tebow-factor in there. For a guy that has done great things in huge moments this year, I’m giving him a break from last week’s poor play, and the week before that, and…. Well, I’m saying he does enough to keep it within striking distance.
This just seems like the smart-money bet, which scares me a little bit, because smart bets are the toughest ones. It’s hard to call this a smart bet when you get a Broncos team that struggles to even get first downs going up against a Steelers team that is and has been one of the best defenses in all of football for years. Tim Tebow couldn’t put the Broncos on the board for more than 3 points in what was damn-near a must-win game for his Broncos. How can we expect him to score a couple touchdowns against the Steelers?
Tebowness, that’s what. His elbow is connected to his Tebow, and that’s good enough for me.
Alright, that’s not good enough, but the Steelers beat up offense is. Not many chances taken in this game should keep it under double digits.
