The Steelers and the Washington Football Team are playing Monday evening, but it won’t be on “Monday Night Football.”
This game will be the opening act for the actual Week 13 MNF game between the 49ers and the Bills. The game was moved to Monday to help out Pittsburgh, which had to alter its schedule for the second-straight week after playing the Ravens on a bizarre Wednesday night game just five days ago.
The Steelers (11-0) are the NFL’s last undefeated team, but tonight’s matchup could give them some problems. Starting linebacker Bud Dupree, who has 8 sacks on the year, is out for the season after tearing his ACL last week. That’s the second starting linebacker Pittsburgh has lost to an ACL injury this season, with Devin Bush also being scratched for the remainder of the year.
Washington (4-7) may not boast the most impressive record, but it has a solid defense led by the league’s third-best pass rush (36 sacks) this season. With the Giants getting a surprise win over the Seahawks yesterday, Washington will need a win to keep pace at the top of the NFC East.
