Playbook picks: Broncos will lose their second straight

The defending champion Steelers have struggled on the road this year at 1-2, with that one victory being a pretty narrow decision against the struggling Lions. The Broncos, meanwhile, have played lights out at home, posting a perfect 3-0 mark at Invesco Field.

Consider our NFL Network Playbook analysts unconvinced. They unanimously think Pittsburgh will hand Denver its second straight loss.
