Steelers vs. Broncos: 10 Observations Following Pittsburgh's Week 1 Loss

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a tough opening game against the Denver Broncos at Invesco Field, unable to begin their 2012 script with a fresh result from their heartbreaking playoff loss in January.

Nevertheless, with 15-plus games remaining, the Black and Gold's campaign still has a lot of legs left, and no singular game—even one as anticipated as Peyton's return—warrants any terrible tantrums.  Instead, the campaign still promises many reasons to wave those Terrible Towels!

In a contest that saw a strange hybrid of effective execution and self-execution, the Steelers gave their nation reasons for optimism for 45 minutes of football, only to fall apart at the seams in the fourth quarter.

Sadly, injuries are mounting, the franchise quarterback was outplayed and Sunday Night Football presented more questions than answers.

Fortunately, even with the obstacles ahead, the Steelers are a resilient squad used to overcoming such challenges, and 2012-13 still holds promise for becoming another banner year in the Steel City.

Though the best tonic for defeat is a win, Steelers Country will have to wait six more days until their thirst for victory can be quenched.  In the meantime, let's take a look back at 10 observations taken from Sunday night's disappointment.
