There is one single key to this game...Pitt's running game.
Big Ben's decision making depends on it. Quite honestly I was shocked at his performance last week. A lot of people will say "Oh, he threw those interceptions because he has a bad thumb". Well, that's just an excuse. His throws were not affected by his thumb at all. He put zip on balls, and his lofts were pretty and accurate. He just forced the ball one too many times. All those INTs came from him throwing into double, triple, and yes one into quadruple coverage. Seriously, if that was Maddox out there throwing those exact same passes, everybody would be booing and blaming him.
Don't get me wrong, I like the guy, he's a good QB but it seems when the Steelers can't get the running game going, he starts forcing things. Just look at the playoffs last year.
That being said...you can still mark a win for the Steelers this week.
