2012 NFL schedule: Steelers host Redskins on Sunday

Jared Wickerham

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers look to stay on track against the dangerous Washington Redskins.

In Week 8 of this wild NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers will host Robert Griffin III and the frisky Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon.

Pittsburgh righted the ship last weekend, beating a tough Cincinnati Bengals team on the road to bring itself back to 3-3 on the campaign.The defense was solid as ever, while Ben Roethlisberger and a revamped running game led the offensive charge.

The Redskins are coming off a heartbreaking loss to the defending-champion New York Giants. It appeared Washington might be able to pull off the upset, but it was undone by a 77-yard Eli Manning to Victor Cruz touchdown with less than two minutes to play.

Other action around the league includes the suddenly hot New Orleans Saints making a visit to Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos. In the NFC, the Giants take on the Dallas Cowboys in an all-important NFC East showdown at Cowboys Stadium.
