Prediction:

The Redskins have struggled in recent weeks and while the Steelers are awfully banged up, they continue to find ways to win. Pittsburgh will load up to stop Clinton Portis and the Washington running game while forcing Jason Campbell (zero interceptions on the year) to beat them through the air. Washington’s defense has played awfully well this season and likely won’t allow Ben Roethilsberger to beat them deep. Except a tough, physical football game and a low scoring affair. We predict the Steelers over the Redskins 16-14.
