With the Steelers playing at home and looking to extend their winning streak to six games, the Heinz Field Heroes take on the Green Bay Packers. Here are five Steelers (technically six) that could play major roles:

  • Martavis Bryant and Eli Rogers: The rookie sensation, JuJu Smith-Schuster is out this week with a hammy. That paves the way for this pair to shine opposite AB.
  • Chris Hubbard: Marcus Gilbert's loss to suspension will be less daunting with Hubbard at the ready. At first, he was suspect filling in for No. 77, but now he’s grown back into the capable understudy he was when he first emerged in 2016.
  • Cameron Sutton: I'm not really sure exactly how much we’re going to see of the rookie. With Joe Haden still on the mend, Sutton may see some action—if not on defense, then possibly on special teams.
  • Artie Burns: Against Brett Hundley, Burns has a chance to ballhawk and nab his first interception against Aaron Rodgers' backup.
  • Chris Boswell: Boswell has scored 40.44% (90) of the team's 225 points this season. With an offense that has struggled to score in 2017, Boswell’s presence is mandatory.
