The Steelers will open their 80th season in the NFL the way they closed their last one, only with a different twist this time when they play Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Denver Sept. 9, a Sunday Night Football broadcast.

That kickoff to the 2012 season will come eight months after the Broncos upset the Steelers in the first round of the playoffs, 29-23, on Jan. 8 when Tim Tebow threw an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage in overtime.

Tebow won't get a chance to do it again because he's gone, traded to the New York Jets after the Broncos signed Manning after his release by the Indianapolis Colts.

He will be the first of the two Manning brothers the Steelers will play next season. Eli Manning will lead the Super Bowl champion New York Giants against the Steelers, Nov. 4, in the two-year-old MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Steelers have five scheduled primetime game, including the 8:20 p.m. opener at Denver, Thursday night Oct. 11 at Tennessee, Sunday night Oct. 21 at Cincinnati, and two at home -- Monday night Nov. 12 vs. Kansas City and Sunday night Nov. 18 vs. Baltimore.
