Rumors had swirled all week whether the Steelers were going to rest a lot of their starters in Week 17 as the team prepares for the Cleveland Browns, in what is construed as many as a rather meaningless game. If the Steelers beat the Browns, and the Patriots lose to the Jets, the road to Super Bowl 52 will go through Heinz Field.
Can Landry Jones, Stevan Ridley and a predominantly backup offensive line get the job done? Only time will tell, but the fact remains the Steelers are more concerned about going into the playoffs healthy, rather than banged up.
