Football Extra Points:
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.
Let's take a look at week 12.
Minnesota at Chicago - The Vikings are coming off their bye week to face a Bears team that got destroyed last week by the 49ers. The Vikings started off hot but lost several games after Ponder started to turn the ball over. A weeks rest will help AP with his recovery and he'll be fresh to run the ball. If Ponder can manage the game against the Bears defense the Vikings will win this game.
The Bears were embarrassed last week on the national stage. Everyone got to see why Cutler is always so mad at his offensive line, they're terrible. Cutler covers up so many iss...

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is pushing hard to get on the field Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, but the ultimate decision on whether or not he plays will be made by head coach Mike Tomlin following pre game warm-ups.
Brown, who suffered a left high ankle sprain against the New York Giants a few weeks ago, was listed as questionable on the Friday injury...
(Eds: Updates throughout) By CHRIS ADAMSKI Associated Press Mike Wallace is in his fourth season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so the wide receiver is familiar with all this talk about Charlie Batch.
Asked if it was at all concerning that the man throwing the ball to him on Sunday will soon be 38 years old, Wallace shrugged.
''He's been old,'' he said of Batch...
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.

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.
