Here we go Steelers, here we go! Your Pittsburgh Steelers try to make it 2-in-a-row today at the Big Ketchup Bottle as they faceoff against the Dolts from San Diego. Here are your keys to today's game. 1)The 4-8 Dolts' last win in Pittsburgh was all the way back in the '94 AFC title game at Three Rivers. Because the Dolts are a west coast team and it's a 1:00 start, you'd figure the Steelers can catch them napping. The Dolts have averaged just 63.3 yards rushing in their last 3 games. Meanwhile, QB Phillip Rivers has been sacked 14 times in the last 3 games. Is the defense licking their chops over this one? Don't expect a cakewalk as the Steelers almost always play down to the level of competition. Beware the trap! 2)Big Ben gets the start today, his first since returning from injury. Ben is 3-1 vs. the Dolts with a 97.7 passer rating. Butterfingers Wallace has a mear 13 catches for 93 yards in his last 4 games. Heeeeaaaath Miller leads the Steelers with 56 receptions and 7 touchdowns. What does this tell us? Throw the ball to #83, Ben! Score early, score often, score BIG! 3)The Dolts rank 25th in the NFL with 18.3 points per game and 26th with 320 yards per game. Again, the D ought to tee off on these guys. Hit 'em early, hit 'em often, hit 'em HARD! Let's Go Steelers!!!!!!
