The Steelers and Broncos wrap up the divisional round action, squaring off in Denver. We break down the pertinent information to get you ready for the game.

The divisional round of the 2016 NFL playoffs comes to a close Sunday afternoon, as the Denver Broncos host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game kicks off at 1:40 p.m. PT on CBS, with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in the announcer booth. The winner advances to face the New England Patriots in the 2016 AFC Championship Game.

This game is all about injuries. The Steelers will be without wide receiver Antonio Brown (concussion) and running back DeAngelo Williams (foot). Ben Roethlisberger will play through a separated shoulder, but will be dealing with plenty of painkillers. On the Broncos side, Peyton Manning is making his first start since Week 10. He dealt with injuries that led to his benching, but he was playing pretty poorly beyond the injuries. It will be fascinating to see what he can do in his return to starting.

The Broncos opened as 2.5-point favorites, but the Steelers injury report has bumped it up to 7.5 points. I think Denver wins this game, but I have a hunch it ends up a close, wild game.
