That game was on the offensive line, not Peyton Manning. No one, not manning, not Marino, not Montana, Namath, not Aikman, can be expected to throw quality passes with four or five defensive players bearing down on him. And yet, he was still able to throw for 290 yards. His performance was a result of poor offensive line play and poor coaching to counter Pittsburgh's defensive scheme.
Now, with that said, I think the underdogs may take these games away. I can very easily see Steve Smith having another 200 yard games against that Seahawk secondary while stopping Alexander on the other side. And, well, Pittsburgh will come out doing the same against the Broncos.
