With no increase expected in the 2013 NFL salary cap, the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely see many of their most recognized and fan favored players on different teams or retired following the final regular season game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, December 30. Fans who are already depressed about the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals may be looking at even more tough times ahead.
In a game that was winnable, the Pittsburgh Steelers fall to .500 on the season after an abysmal showing against the Dallas Cowboys. Nearly every unit on the Steelers team receives a poor grade that only adds to the misery of a bitter defeat and their fourth loss in five games.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) and the Dallas Cowboys (7-6) will face each other at Dallas Cowboys Stadium on Sunday. Both teams are looking for a playoff berth.

Ike Taylor and LaMarr Woodley may be out for the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5) when they host the San Diego Chargers (4-8) at Heinz Field Sunday, but the return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to the field and players returning from injury lists puts the Steelers in great position to win the game. Everyone is feeling that the timing is just right.
Wednesday’s practice for the Pittsburgh Steelers was a testing ground for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

The Pittsburgh Steelers saved their best for last in an emotional win in the final seconds of the game at M&T Stadium against the Baltimore Ravens. Kicker Shaun Suisham beat the 20-20 tie at the end of the fourth quarter to put the Steelers up 23-20 with no time left in the game.
While the Pittsburgh Steelers have slipped to 6-5 on the season, the Baltimore Ravens are atop the AFC North at 9-2. Both teams know each other well, which will certainly make the game entertaining. With hopeful news of Antonio Brown’s return and the possible return of Troy Polamalu, it makes the opponent profile that much more interesting.
The Fan Morning Show’s Gregg Giannotti and Jim Colony made their way down to the South Side this week, where Gregg chatted with offensive linemen Maurkice Pouncey and Max Starks.
