They are battered and bruised, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are still entering the playoffs as one of the three favorites to win the AFC.
Already playing without Ryan Clark and Rashard Mendenahll, the Steelers may also be without their Pro Bowl center, Maurkice Pouncey, as they travel to Denver for the Wild-Card matchup with the Broncos.
"I practiced the other day and toward the end I got sore," Pouncey told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after practice Thursday.
"Today, I came in and my ankle was real sore, so I don't know what the turnout is going to be. Right now, I'm not practicing."
If Pouncey does not play, Doug Legursky, who missed the Steelers' regular season finale with an injury, will start at center.
After an amazing display of fourth quarter magic which put the Broncos in playoff position, Tebow has faded over the past three weeks and will have to rely on a strong ground game to have a chance against the Steelers.
Here are the keys for the Steelers to get a playoff win over the Broncos.
