The Rams visit a potentially Roethlisberger-less Steelers team in Week 16, but still are heavy underdogs.
Kellen Clemens and the St. Louis Rams visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16, and their chances of victory will depend on if Ben Roethlisberger is healthy enough for action. The towering quarterback is suffering from a high-ankle sprain and sounds like he's a game-time decision. Even with Charlie Batch starting, the Steelers' punishing defense should be enough to carry them to a win over the two-win Rams.
The Rams are again without Sam Bradford, again without A.J. Feeley, which means Clemens will again be quarterbacking the Rams, which he's done the past two games without much success. They have two wins, they're pretty much deciding what to do with their Top 3 draft pick at this point, so no hearts are being broken over this.
The Steelers have talent at almost every position and, with the exception of Roethlisberger, are getting healthy at the right time. They should cruise in this one.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, Dec. 24, 1 p.m.
