Broncos have a history of getting to Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

Broncos (0-1) at Steelers (1-0)

1 p.m. ET | CBS

Matchup rating: 53.6 | Spread: PIT -7.5 (41.5)

What to watch for: The Steelers shut down one of the league's premier running backs Monday night, only allowing Saquon Barkley 6 rushing yards. The Broncos' rushers fared a bit better against the Titans, averaging 4.1 yards per carry, but they enter Sunday's matchup with a question mark on Phillip Lindsay's availability. Look for the Steelers' defense to dominate yet another ground game. -- Brooke Pryor

Bold prediction: The Broncos will sack Ben Roethlisberger at least four times and force at least once turnover on a QB hit. Yes, Von Miller is out for the year, Bradley Chubb is still working his way back from last season's ACL surgery and the Broncos were tepid in the pass-rush in much of their Week 1 loss to the Titans. But Roethlisberger has faced the Broncos nine times in his long career, and the Broncos have sacked him at least three times in seven of those games -- and at least four in four of them. -- Jeff Legwold

Stat to know: The Steelers have gone 58 straight games with at least one sack, tied for the sixth-longest streak by any team since 1970. A sack in this one would tie them for the fifth-longest streak.

Injuries: Broncos | Steelers

Betting nugget: The Broncos have failed to cover their last four games off less than a full week of rest. Read more.
