When Ben Roethlisberger went down with shoulder and rib injuries against the Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh fans knew it was going to a tough road ahead.Now that backup Byron Leftwich is out with his own rib injury, the Steelers will turn to third string quarterback Charlie Batch as they face the Cleveland Browns in a key AFC North matchup.Here are my three bold predictions for Sunday's game in Cleveland. Plaxico Burress Scores a Touchdown in His Pittsburgh HomecomingIn the first round of the 2000 draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected the 6'5" Plaxico Burress as a potential redzone target.After five seasons with the black and gold, Burress moved on, but late in 2012 he has been called upon again to help a redzone offense in desparate need to a reliable target.Charlie Batch hasn't started a game since 2010 when Roethlisberger was serving a 4-game suspension, and will need some help from both the running game and his receivers if they are going to survive the next f...

After yesterday's Thanksgiving day debacles, it's safe to assume some coaches are on the proverbial hot seat. Congratulations Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys, you fit that description.I wrote a few weeks ago that the Cowboys could still make the playoffs. They needed to win every "winnable" game and hope the NY Giants faltered down the stretch. The Cowboys now...

The Pittsburgh Steelers have seen their season turned on its head the past two weeks with a big loss to the Baltimore Ravens and even bigger losses at quarterback. With last week’s starter Byron Leftwich joining Ben Roethlisberger sidelined by injury, the Steelers will look to find a way to get it done against the Cleveland Browns Sunday with third-stringer Charlie...
Last week: 9 (-1)
I have no idea what Mike Tomlin was thinking leaving Byron Leftwich out there when he was clearly hurt. There’s no real difference in talent level between him and Charlie Batch; in fact, I thought Batch should have been the starter in the first place after Ben Roethlisberger was ruled out. He’s a better fit for their quick throw, timing based offense...
Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, but beat writer Mary Kay Cabot thinks he's going to play.Fantasy Spin:Haden would likely get the toughest assignment, stopping Mike Wallace, but it's made easier by the absence of Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich.
