◊Players to Watch

♦WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will be stepping up to the third wide receiver role with the suspension of wide receiver  Martavis Bryant . The Steelers will need Heyward-Bey to show up big time at least as a deep threat.

♦ RB DeAngelo Williams will see his first major playing time as a Steeler , stepping in for suspended running back Le’Veon Bell. Time to see what Williams brings to the Steeler’s offense.

♦ The Steelers defense must be able to pressure QB Tom Brady. It will be interesting to see who steps up.

♦ The Steelers safety play must not make many mistakes tonight.Keep an eye on S Mike Mitchell and S Will Allen.
