The Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos square off Monday night in a game that features 2 of the NFL's premier pass-rushers in James Harrison and Elvis Dumervil.

They're similar in stature, strength and statistics, but they're totally different players in terms of style.

Harrison uses his brute strength to overwhelm blockers, while Dumervil relies more on speed and quickness. Both are short, stocky players who have leverage in their favor most of the time.

Dumervil leads the AFC with 10 sacks this season and Harrison, the 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is right behind him with eight.
