Re: Don't Let Ben's Absence Rob You
This. They're wounded and desperate. They don't want to be looking up at the Bengals at the end of the year, and losing this game makes that much more likely regardless of the outcome of the Bengals game against the Chargers.

The fans can help. We should look at this game as a chance to take ownership of the division. The goal needs to be a two-year sweep of the division and back-to-back titles, and right now the Steelers are the team in the way of that goal. If the fans are roaring, and I think they will be (I, alas, will not be able to make the game at The Vault), that will help fire up the team.
