Despite the Steelers injury issues at quarterback and at safety (Troy Polamalu), the defense is ranked first in the league in defense. Different year, same Steel Curtain defense in Pittsburgh.
BEST OF MAXIM
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger posted a picture of his newborn son, Benjamin Roethlisberger Jr., on his website Saturday.
The caption of the photo reads, "Ben's favorite photo so far ... and dad's new screen saver for his phone!"
The first child of Roethlisberger and wife Ashley was born Wednesday night and weighed in at 7 pounds, 1 ounce...
While the Steelers offense certainly will miss Roethlisberger, the Steelers defense as well as a solid run game and a “good enough” passing game should propel them to victory.
Oddsmakers currently have the Steelers to have about a 54% chance to win this game. At Sports Tradex, which is a free prediction marketplace that awards prizes to users who perform the best weekly, the...
The Steelers have enough talent on the roster to carry them to the playoffs. They need to keep Batch upright and give him a chance to make plays down the field. The running game will be key this week.
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.
While the Pittsburgh Steelers have declared quarterbacks Ben
Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich out for Sunday’s matchup against the
Cleveland Browns, the team has safety Troy Polamalu listed as doubtful and wide
receiver Antonio Brown as questionable to play.
Polamalu was able to return to practice for the first time
in seven weeks, but he remains doubtful to play Sunday...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is making good progress as he continues to recover from rib and shoulder injuries and is still considered to be week-to-week at this point.
With the Steelers so depleted at the quarterback position, Roethlisberger might serve as the emergency quarterback on Sunday.

Some late breaking news today as Bob Labriola reports via Twitter that Doug Legursky will get the start at left guard over Willie Colon for the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Cleveland Browns.
Colon showed up on the injury report on Friday with a knee injury, but will be dressed just in case.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is officially out for this Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Roethlisberger will miss his second straight game because of shoulder/rib injury. With backup Byron Leftwich out with two broken ribs, the Steelers will turn to veteran Charlie Batch to start at quarterback.
Cliff Notes: Game will be close, but Steelers likely to prevail due to making less mistakes.
Chris Rainey's fumble with 2:25 left - Pittsburgh's seventh turnover - was recovered by Cleveland's Phil Taylor and the Browns handed their hated rivals a potentially devastating loss, 20-14 over the stumbling Steelers on Sunday.
Charlie Batch, forced to start at quarterback for Pittsburgh because of injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, was picked off three...
The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without Antonio Brown in their matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Brown has been dealing with an ankle injury for the past two games, but he was able to return to practice this week. It seems that return to practice does not mean he's ready to play.
According to Mike Florio of NBC Sports, Brown will be out, and Plaxico Burress could get...
BEREA-- Despite playing against the Steelers third-string quarterback and one of their best defenders, the Browns might have their hands full trying to score points on their own Sunday.
With a 6-4 record, the Steelers are currently ranked first in the NFL in defense. They are No. 1 against the pass and No. 4 versus the run. They average giving up 19 points a game, which is fifth...
Below is the week 11 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night.
I think it was pretty obvious to anyone that watched the game that this was not a great performance over all by the Steelers offensive line. There were several demerits handed out in both the pass and run blocking departments with pass protection being the worst...
