Pittsburgh Steelers @ Washington Redskins

Saturday, August 22nd, 7:30PM

Fedex Field

Weather: 2PM-5PM (70% chance rain - 84 degrees)
8PM-11PM (50% chance rain - 75 degrees)

Not expected to play: Ben Roethlisberger, Mike Williams

What I am watching for:

1.) ANYONE on offense to make a play. Seriously. I'm tired of reading and seeing who looks good in practice. It's time for one of the red shirt WRs to make a play....and I mean 30+ yard play and/or TD.

2.) 1st defense vs Charlie Batch: WIth Big Ben sitting out, I expect Charlie Batch to spend more time on his back than Paris Hilton.

3.) 3 and outs. I want to see the Redskins outnumber the Steelers in this 2-1. 

Of course consistent O-line protection and same flashes from the back up RBs will be nice. What will you be looking for?

Sugar and I are on our way to Fedex Field shortly. We'll be online then and will be able to contribute some sights and sounds from the parking lot.
