The Broncos last competed in an international match in 2010. For the first time since the 2015 season, the Broncos will visit Pittsburgh. The Steelers won the game at home, but the Broncos avenged themselves a few weeks later with a home win in the AFC Divisional playoffs on their way to Super Bowl 50.
Since then, both Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger have retired from playing football. Neither of them came back to the team they started with.
Manning joined the Indianapolis Colts while Roethlisberger signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers after both teams were awarded the right to hire him away. Although neither one of them returned to their original team, the Broncos and Steelers still play each other every year in Week 1 of the NFL schedule.
During World War II, the United States government banned all sports events between countries because they thought it would be unfair to allow Americans to watch European athletes compete. The NFL agreed with this policy until 1947 when it allowed some foreign teams into the league. These teams were required to have American players on them which eliminated most of the world's best soccer players from competition. The Broncos were given the right to draft British football player Tom Jackson with the third overall pick in the 1947 draft. He went on to start for the Broncos for eight seasons before moving onto other teams in the NFL and Europe.
In 2020, Denver will host its division opponents in a pair of new stadiums. The Broncos will also host four other teams from 2019: Chicago, New England, Oakland and Kansas City.
The Broncos currently play in Mile High Stadium, which has been their home field since it was built in 1998. The stadium is owned by the city of Denver and is located just outside downtown. It can hold up to 70,000 fans and has been expanded several times over the years. The team's former home, Dick's Sporting Goods Park, opened in 2006 and held 35,000 fans. Denver lost that game 24-14 to Philadelphia.
In 2017, Denver moved into the newly constructed Sports Authority Field at Mile High, which has served as its home field since then. The stadium is part of the National Football League's (NFL) Colorado football franchise, which also includes the Colorado Rockies baseball team. The Broncos' previous home, Empowerment Stadium, had only seated 40,000 fans and was considered small for an NFL stadium.
In addition to playing in two different cities, the Broncos have also played at three different time zones: Eastern Time, Mountain Time and Central Time.

Antonio Brown had 12 receptions for 199 yards and two touchdowns against him from Joe Flacco. Brown also had nine catches for 140 yards and a touchdown against him from Justin Herbert in Week 15 last year. He is expected to play a major role in this game as well.
These are some of the most notable statistics between the Steelers and Broncos. The Steelers are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games vs. Denver. Overall, the record is 7-5-1 in their history vs. Colorado. Here are the complete records for each team:
