The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a heart breaking defeat in Week 8 of the 2015 season to the Cincinnati Bengals. The loss moved their record to 4-4, but they are faced with a chance to avenge the loss by beating the Oakland Raiders, who are above them in the race to the AFC Playoffs at 4-3, at Heinz Field Sunday.
The Raiders aren't 'the Raiders' of old, where a 'W' could be put on the schedule when it was released, but the team is running on all cylinders with Amari Cooper and Derek Carr leading the way. Add the fact the Steelers have lost 4 of the last 5 games against the Raiders and this game has an interesting twist to it.
The Steelers will be without Le'Veon Bell, but Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown will be looking to get back to their high-scoring ways this Sunday for this 1 p.m. EDT kickoff.
