The article focuses on the football team Pittsburgh Steelers. The club is in position to make a playoff run starting at Cincinnati, though it never has won a road playoff game under Bill Cowher. The offensive line is conning together partly because of the return of IT Marvel Smith, who is suffering from ankle injury. QB Ben Roethlisberger needs to prove he can avoid last year's mistakes. Against the Cincinnati Bengals in December, he threw three picks and the Steelers lost. The run defense was good.
