The Denver Broncos host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in their first postseason appearance since 2005. While both of these teams were good enough to get into the playoffs, neither will be entering the game in fashion. The Broncos lost three consecutive games to end the regular season, and the Steelers are looking at a laundry list of injury issues.
Beyond the absence of star running back Rashard Mendenhall, starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still ailing and numerous defensive starters have been sitting out practice to try to heal for Sunday's game. The Broncos may be struggling of late, but this is a Steelers team that's vulnerable in certain areas.

Location: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
