If it weren’t for the Pittsburgh Steelers, I’m not sure I would have become a Broncos fan. My dad is from Pittsburgh and so the first time I decided to really pore over the NFL, it was a Steelers game. I thought they were boring, but I loved watching the Broncos’ defense.
So this matchup always carries a little bit of extra weight for me. With Ben Roethlisberger’s return and a loaded defense, it looked like a great time to reach out for insight into the black and gold from one of their own.
