The Pittsburgh Steelers are planning on letting Ben Roethlisberger play between 25 and 30 snaps against the Browns this weekend according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  The Steelers don’t want Roethlisberger sitting out 2 straight games and getting rusty before heading into the playoffs.  The Steelers feel they can beat the Browns without Big Ben behind center for the entire game.  If I was the Steelers I would let Roethlisberger play the first quarter and then sit him the rest of the game.
