Game Preview: Washington Redskins (3-4) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3)

Larry French

Stats, notes, trends, and TV info for the Redskins vs Steelers game.

A big stat that I mentioned on the Hogs Haven podcast was that Dick LeBeau has an astounding record vs rookie Quarterbacks...14-1. Troy Smith of all people was the lone winner week 17 in 2007. But digging deeper, a list was found of all those rookie QBs...and they are "TURRIBLE" (as my grand-dad loved to say). Check it out. John Beck sighting.

To continue on the Steelers, they have lost to the Titans and Oakland, although both of those games were on the road and the Steelers are 2-0 at home.
