Every NFL season is a journey, and the Pittsburgh Steelers' 2012 tale begins at Invesco Field at Mile High, where the last chapter of their 2011 story finished a mile low.

One week later, the Black and Gold host the New York Jets and an all-too familiar face in Timothy Richard Tebow.  Hopefully the team makes like the former Gator's initials, treating the affair as T.R.T. (total redemption time) in a win over Gang Green.

It's exciting to consider that those contests are just the tip of the iceberg!  Headlines and story angles will be abundant, and that's only regarding the two games above, not the entire schedule.

With T.R.T. and the Broncos on the docket to open the season, Steelers Country will be in full vengeance mode.  However, do either or these games (or both?) feature one of Pittsburgh's five most intriguing opponents of 2012?

After all, the Men of Steel will face a gauntlet of opponents that includes historical rivals (Dallas and Oakland), cross-state foes (Philadelphia), and arch-enemies from one of the toughest divisions in the NFL (Baltimore and Cincinnati).

With a schedule full of exhilarating match-ups, these are the top five teams that Steelers fans should be salivating to tee off against this season.
