Pittsburgh Pass Offense vs. Denver Pass Defense

                    Completion %   Att/Gm      Yds        Avg/Comp   20 yds+    Sacks

Denver                61.9%            31.1       1,264         6.4            15             23

Roethlisberger     70.5%            33.4       1,932         8.8            29             20

                      QB Rating    Yds/Gm        Pts/Gm   

Denver                74.9          180.6           13.7

Roethlisberger    104.1          276.0           26.4

So Denver has seen the following QBs and these same have put up the following numbers:

QB       Rating     C/ATT    Yds        Int

Palmer   61.0    21/33      247         2

Quinn    58.7    18/31      161         1

Russell   22.6    12/21      61          2

Romo     67.1    25/42     255         1

Brady     97.4   19/33      215         0

Rivers    97.3    20/33      274        0

Flacco  109.2   20/25      175         0

I am noticing a trend in the last three weeks: It seems like when the Bronco's pass defense has met an above average QB they have been "shown up." My opinion is that Big Ben's above average skill set and above average set of receivers will do the trick and the passing game will be able to do what we need it to do.
