I'm with you on this, RB. I think the game will be close, but the Steelers have the proverbial ability to impose their will on you.
As much as I don't like the Steelers, I admire them having a team philosophy and sticking with it. If the Steelers defense (and Polomalu) are healthy, I see them blitzing Rodgers silly and making him make quick reads and accurate throws under pressure. Now Rodgers also has a gun and the fastest release in the game, so this ought to be an interesting matchup. And the Steelers will run the ball and Roethlisberger will play his game where he moves around, sheds tacklers like Lilliputians off Gulliver, and makes some key throws. I see the game 27-14 Steelers with the Steelers scoring late to cement a win.
