The Denver Broncos are still smarting from their beatdown at Baltimore and they're pledging not to let themselves get pummeled by Pittsburgh.
The main message when coach Josh McDaniels installed his game plan Wednesday was that the Broncos need to get back to the basics of winning the physical matchups. It's what they did during their 6-0 start, a stretch that came to a crashing halt in a 30-7 blowout loss at Baltimore last week.
Starting fast is one way the Broncos hope to turn things around on the physicality front. They've been outscored 39-24 in the first quarter while outscoring opponents 116-57 after that.
