Players to Watch…

♦ Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is out with a knee injury and the offense will be in the hands of back up quarterback Mike Vick. Vick must manage the game and not try to do too much and keep from turning over the ball.

♦Look for the Steelers to rely more on the running game. Running backs Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams should see their work load increase.

♦Relying more on the run game will mean that the Steelers offensive line must win the battle at the line of scrimmage.

♦The Steelers defense must step up and pressure Raven’s QB Joe Flacco and once again the Steelers need big plays from its secondary. Who will be the defensive play makers this week?
