Steelers ready for Manning to be "ridiculous" self

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin expects to see the same old Peyton Manning when Pittsburgh travels to Denver for the season opener on Sunday night.

Tomlin believes Manning will "be at his very best" while playing in a game for the first time since Indianapolis lost to the New York Jets in the Wild Card round of the 2010 NFL playoffs.

The 11-time Pro Bowler missed all of last season after undergoing neck surgery and landed in Denver after being released by the Colts.

Tomlin said as easy as it is to focus on Manning, however, the Broncos knocked off the Steelers in the playoffs last January behind the unheralded arm of Tim Tebow. Though Tebow has moved on to the Jets, Tomlin said he left behind a talented group that should thrive with Manning under center.
