The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots are just hours away from an epic showdown at Heinz Field, and both teams have finalized their game day rosters with their official inactive lists.

Here is the official inactive list:

QB Joshua Dobbs (healthy)
WR Justin Hunter (healthy)
CB Joe Haden (fibula)
S J.J. Wilcox (healthy)
OT Matt Feiler (healthy)
TE Vance McDonald (shoulder)
NT Daniel McCullers (healthy)

Although the team will be without Haden, JuJu Smith-Schuster is active for the game, and this is a big story for the team getting ready to face the Patriots in the biggest game of the season. Throw in the fact the team decided to make Hunter inactive, the medical staff must be confident in Smith-Schuster’s hamstring.

Other than Haden and Smith-Schuster, the Steelers’ inacitve list is pretty much what was expected. Coty Sensabaugh will be active, with a shoulder injury, which will make it interesting to see who will start opposite Artie Burns at cornerback, Sensabaugh or Cameron Sutton.

Below is the New England inactive list:
