The Pittsburgh Steelers won’t have to face Aaron Rodgers Sunday in Green Bay, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Matt Flynn will start for the Packers in place of Rodgers, who will miss his seventh straight game with a broken collarbone. That gives the Steelers a boost in this game.

If they went up against Rodgers Sunday, their chances of making the playoffs would equal the chances of an average man dating a supermodel. Now that they don’t have to worry about Rodgers, their chances of making the playoffs now are like the chances of an average man dating a supermodel under six feet tall. In other words, it’s still pretty much impossible no matter who plays quarterback for the Packers. Keeping track of every game that must go the Steelers’ way to keep their playoff hopes alive can be as difficult as it’s been for Jarvis Jones...
