The bad news is, the Pittsburgh Steelers lost again to the Denver Broncos. This time, the Broncos didn't even need overtime, defeating the Steelers 31-19.
The good news is, this loss doesn't end the Steelers' season like it did the last time they went to Denver. The Steelers are guaranteed 15 more games. They just have to hope most of them turn out better than Sunday night's season opener.
At least this is a more forgivable loss than last year's 35-7 shellacking in Baltimore to start the season. After all, Peyton Manning does to a lot of teams what he did to the Steelers Sunday night. He just wasn't supposed to be able to shake off the rust so soon against the Steelers' supposedly stout defense.
It's tough to tell if what we learned about the Steelers Sunday night will be the case for the rest of the season. It's just one game. But here's what we know so far.
