2012 Wild Card Sunday Open Thread: Broncos Vs. Steelers

The media's main course for Sunday is at hand as the Denver Broncos and TIM TEBOW!!! face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Giants wrapped up their morning victory with a dominant second half performance to blow away the Falcons 24-2.

The Giants advance to face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field next Sunday. The Packers have already opened as nine to ten point favorites in a rematch of a wild shootout in the Meadowlands in Week 13. The Packers escaped with a 38-35 victory thanks to a last second Mason Crosby field goal. We'll see how the two teams fare on the frozen tundra.

For now though, we get the Denver Broncos hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers for the right to face the New England Patriots. Tim Tebow is the story for many, but this game features so much more. The Steelers are dealing with numerous injuries both in terms of absences and gimpy players on the field. If the Broncos are going to have a chance, they'll need their defense to keep the Steelers aware of their presence.

On offense, the Broncos will need to get a strong game from Willis McGahee. Tim Tebow is as hit and miss as they come. He can weave some fourth quarter magic, but the Broncos are going to need more than that today. It should be an interesting matchup at Mile High.
