Game notes

» All-time in the regular season, the Denver Broncos own a 15-9-1 (.600) record against the Pittsburgh Steelers, including a 4-2 mark in their last six matchups

» With a win Sunday, the Broncos would extend their road winning streak to three games for the first time since 2015

» Denver offensive line coach Mike Munchak spent five seasons (2014-’18) in the same role with Pittsburgh

» With a win Sunday, Teddy Bridgewater would become the ninth quarterback in Broncos history to win four of his first five starts with the team

» If he does not throw an interception Sunday, Bridgewater would become the sixth quarterback in Denver’s history to go five consecutive games without throwing a pick

» With 2.5 sacks, linebacker Von Miller would tie Sean Jones (113.0) for 22nd on the NFL’s all-time list

» Justin Simmons needs just one interception to join Steve Foley (1976-’80) as the only Broncos safeties with multiple picks in each of his first six seasons
