Big Ben Wants Team To Use Week 17 To Get Healthy


After clinching the AFC North in dramatic fashion against the Baltimore Ravens yesterday, the Pittsburgh Steelers locked themselves into the third seed. With the Cleveland Browns on the schedule in Week 17, star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has one thing on his mind.

“I don’t know what the situation or scenario is,” he stated. “If we’ve got a spot and the [No. 3] clinched up then I think a lot of guys should get healthy.”

At this point in the season, no one is 1oo percent. With that in mind, it’ll make perfect sense for head coach Mike Tomlin to rest some of his key guys this week and considering they’re playing the Browns, it’s a good chance they’ll end up victorious anyway.
