Steelers’ receiver Antonio Brown has been ruled out for Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Denver Broncos after suffering a concussion in last week’s AFC Wild Card win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

A full injury report will be released after practice.

Well, it sure "seems" like that is an advantage. Yeah, it will benefit the Broncos, but now it puts a different kind of pressure on the Broncos.

The steelers will be feeling the need to play harder. Remember this team struggled badly against the ****ty chargers at home, lost to the Raiders at home.

100% correct. Pressure is all on us now if they don't have Brown or Williams and Ben is playing hurt. Hope it doesn't cause a letdown for us.

I don't root for players to get injured, especially this type of injury. So I'm trying not to be happy that he's out. It's hard not to, because this helps out the Broncos. Add that to their top two RBs being out (unless Williams can play), and Ben being banged up. The Broncos D should have a field day against the Steelers. Offensively for the Broncos, just don't turn the ball over and this is a win. That's pretty much it.

That's one thing that I'm worried about. Even with key players out, they aren't showing up with a bunch of scrubs. Last week against the Bengals, their two backup RBs rushed for a combined 123 yards on 26 carries. That's 4.7 per rush. That's not too shabby.

The Broncos need to bring their A game and it should be a win. But turnovers could really hurt them.

Never doubt the Broncos ability to play down to an on-paper much weaker opponent - especially at home. All our losses in the playoffs were to banged up wild card teams.

The Patriots know something about doing that as well.

The only reason I'm not more nervous is this feels different. The Ravens and Colts losses I was %100 we were going to win. Overconfident. There is some anxiety with this one and I think the players are ready. I just hope they don't overplay and collect dumb penalties trying to "intimidate" and end up keeping the Steelers around.

I thought that after the Baltimore game, and the super bowl. Eventually you have to realize the team doesn't seem to play to overcome embarrassments like our 97-98 team did. Back then we had Elway and he was a competitive mfer who wouldn't do that.

I'm going to point out the elephant in the room and hope it doesn't come off as trolling, but you are equally as likely to lose the game on Manning as you are with dumb penalties. Fortunately (for you), he's had a week of rest and looked formidable off the bye vs Green Bay and the few pass plays vs San Diego. IDK how the rest of your line is but Schofield is going to be a liability if he's as bad as you all say he is. Poor protection and playoff Manning would make me a little wary if I were a Broncos fan.

That being said, Pittsburgh's defense is dog ****, and I don't think Ben is going to be good enough considering his injury and AB being ruled out. All things perfect, yea I'd give Pittsburgh a fighting chance. But those things considered I think Denver wins something like 24-14

From ESPN:

PITTSBURGH AT DENVER

Pittsburgh Steelers: I had planned to pick the Broncos all week. Ben Roethlisberger, hurt. DeAngelo Williams, hurt. Antonio Brown, out. But being counted out seems to galvanize this group. I still have a feeling Roethlisberger will play Sunday. Peyton Manning has been out of rhythm all year. The Steelers are one of the best at stopping the run, which is a huge advantage because Denver wants to win with the run. The Steelers' offensive line is better than you’d think. If the Broncos play deep, Pittsburgh will gladly run the ball, and run it well. The current playoff setup screams New England and Pittsburgh in the AFC championship. Steelers 30, Broncos 27. -- Jeremy Fowler

Denver Broncos: Many coaches around the league say when trying to decide how things will go in a postseason game, start at quarterback and then see who has the healthiest roster at that point in the season around him. By that gauge, having earned a playoff bye, the Denver Broncos are a healthier team than the Pittsburgh Steelers, especially with three major contributors in the Steelers’ offense -- quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back DeAngelo Williams -- all with injury questions. So it really comes down to focus, attitude and playing great in big moments. The Broncos certainly didn’t do that last January at home in the divisional-round loss to the Indianapolis Colts. It will be clear in this one whether or not the Broncos have really learned their lesson. Broncos 24, Steelers 16. -- Jeff Legwold

Strangely, I don't feel anxiety at all over this team. I knew we were going to lose to the colts, Fox set the tone for the day by leaking to Glazer he's ready to coach in another city. The team took on the persona of their coaches, just mailed it in. I know Elway's expectations got to last years staff and the staff clearly felt like what they were doing was enough.

However, this year, I see that Kubiak has this team playing for each other and preaching it takes 53, not this next man up bs. I think you'll see a fired up and mentally ready to roll Broncos squad. Even DT will be raring to go since his mother will be at the game for the first time in his career. Couple that with the fact this could be the last ride for Peyton Manning, players will play hard for him.

The effort will be there this time, kicking and screaming. Just going to sit back and enjoy this playoff game.

In game they go through tests to determine if there is a concussion. If there is a concussion they can't play and can't even return to practice (and obviously, they can't play in games), unless an independent neurologist clears them. The protocol is new after the recent "League of denial" controversy.

Those same terrible Chargers held KC at home to 10 points. KC is getting all the breaks with a banged up Gronk and a goofballed Jones. I guess Pats can still hold KC to 10 points.

I just said they are the best team in the AFC but they were healthy then. Denver is definitely getting a KC special on Sunday. Well not quite as good because a banged up Ben is light years better than a Jones or Hoyer. You have already conceded a loss for KC tomorrow.

It's interesting that the Broncos are benefiting from Vontaze Burfict's hits. He ended Le'Veon Bell's season (clean hit). He banged up Ben Roethlisberger really bad (clean hit), and he knocked Antonio Brown out of this week's game (dirty hit).

I don't root for players to get hurt, but if somebody is going to benefit, might as well be the Broncos.

Burfict has a unique set of talents. He also had that INT that should have ended the game.

I actually like him as a player that competes - because as an opponent I understand the fear of running over the middle against him. You can teach players to tone their **** down but you can't teach them to beast up.

All he needs to do is turn down his dirty BS 1 notch.

Steelers’ receiver Antonio Brown has been ruled out for Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Denver Broncos after suffering a concussion in last week’s AFC Wild Card win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

A full injury report will be released after practice.

That's just a crying shame

Breaks? You mean similar to the creampuff schedule the Chiefs have had to finish out like.. most of the season? I'm sure the amazing opponents you have played has gotten your hopes up that the Chiefs are great this year. But let's be realistic: Lions, Broncos (your only decent opponent), Chargers, Bills, Raiders, Chargers, Ravens, Browns, Raiders.. powerhouse schedule there!

Heck.. your last 7 opponent's records are.. well.. heck, I am not going to tally it, but it's WAAAAY under 500. And you are calling US lucky? :giggle:

Chiefs fans crack me up. Playoff records stink, and they think they are something special, now that they won a wildcard game.

Or to put it in perspective:

All-Time Playoff Record: 24 Games, 9-15

Brown not playing takes a BIG option away from Ben, but Ben is the true weapon. He still has two viable threats at WR, and if he is even 75% healthy this game will be tough. Sure he has a bum shoulder, but he'll be getting shots to deal with pain. We'll discover his arm strength once we take away the short-game. If we can put him on the ground early, get in his head, it should be easy street as long as Peyton and Co put up 21-24 points. I can only hope that Kubiak has prepared our team to be ready for the best PIT can throw at us, and that they don't come into the game underestimating the Steelers desire to win. We should be preparing to face the toughest game of the year. Even if it is or isn't.

Well, it sure "seems" like that is an advantage. Yeah, it will benefit the Broncos, but now it puts a different kind of pressure on the Broncos.

The steelers will be feeling the need to play harder. Remember this team struggled badly against the ****ty chargers at home, lost to the Raiders at home.

Breathing easier but it really can be a double edged sword.

Nope. You trying to out way too much into this to try to be your usual pessimism behavior. Their biggest threat is out. The guy that destroyed Harris Jr. Is not playing. There is no double edge sword. Our best CBS doesn't have to go up against a better WR.
