Big game tonight for RB Baron Batch and OLB Chris Carter. Would have been a big game for LB Stevenson Sylvester too, but his torn MCL will keep him out the next three or four weeks.
A few fringe-roster receivers should probably consider this a good time to break out their best games. QB Jerrod Johnson, too. I would think Steelers coach Mike Tomlin would want to get the ball down the field a bit in the second half in order to see which guys want to step up and which ones can't.
We'll see though. Comment away, second half thread will be up, I may even scrawl out some thoughts on the current linebacker quandary as the game goes on.
And as always, remember to drink your Rainey Kool Aid.
