Players to Watch…

♦QB Ben Roethlisberger had three interceptions last week,the Raiders pass defense ranks 30th in the NFL. Look for Roethlisberger to bounce back this week.

♦ The Steelers picked up kick/punt returner Jacoby Jones from the waiver wire.Will he make a difference in the return game?

♦DE Stephon Tuitt is expected back after nursing a knee injury. It will be interesting to see how he holds up.

♦ The Steelers running game will be with out RB Le’Veon Bell. It’s now up to DeAngelo Williams and company to step up and fill the void.
