Manning debut

The Sunday Night Football week 1 matchup of Pittsburgh Steelers vs Denver Broncos are all set tonight at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Check this page for Steelers vs Broncos score updates and highlights.

Peyton Manning returns to NFL action with the Broncos in post-Tebow era. Tim Tebow broke the Steelers heart in the playoff last season in one pass to he threw to Demaryius Thomas for an 80-yard touchdown on the first offensive play of overtime to end Pittsburgh's season.

But that was then, tonight Manning time as he makes his much-anticipated debut after recovering from multiple neck surgeries. Manning looks good during the preseason and expect that to continue as long as he's healhty, "I know how hard I've worked to get back to this position and how much time I've put in to rehabbing and how much time I continue to put in," said Manning, "I'm going to play as hard as I possibly can, so that's really all I know to do."

The Broncos offense might be good but their leading tackler linebacker D.J. Williams is out for a six-game drug suspension. The Manning will trust his offensive linemen to cover their priced quarterback from a vicious hit or else it's the end of story. They won't get Tebow back once Manning is injured again. Manning won't rely on his long ball as Willis McGahee is the leading rusher with 1,199 yards last year. Lance Ball, rookie Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno are ready in the mix.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still the man for the Steelers but lost Hines Ward due to retirement. Mike Wallace is back after the useless holdout and add Antonio Brown for Big Ben targets. Their defense is not good as before but still good to carry coach Tomlin's team to the playoff deeper.

Rashard Mendenhall nursing torn ACL suffered in January is doubtful to play. Backup Isaac Redman has sore hip but will play, to split with third-year back Jonathan Dwyer. Check this page for Steelers vs Broncos live score updates and highlights.
