The Steelers beat the Chiefs on Monday night, but it wasn't exactly a triumphant march of a game. The Chiefs (who hadn't led in regulation at all this season) were up on the Steelers at one point, and Pittsburgh ended up winning by only a field goal. That doesn't even take into account the fact that Ben Roethlisberger might be out for a long time after a shoulder injury. It's got to be strange for a fan base of a team that's 6-3 to be worried about the rest of the season, but the Steelers have to overcome a 7-2 Ravens team if they have a chance at winning the AFC North. It'll be doubly difficult if they have to do it with someone other than Big Ben behind center.
Steelers without Roethlisberger?
Ben Roethlisberger might not be as central to his team's success as some quarterbacks, but the Steelers' backups are a big downgrade.
