The Pittsburgh Steelers return home to face Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Coming off a win over AFC North foe Cincinnati, the Pittsburgh Steelers look to make it two in a row this weekend when they welcome Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins into Heinz Field.

This will be a matchup of marquee quarterbacks with the veteran Ben Roethlisberger opposing Griffin III. Last week in Cincinnati, Roethlisberger threw for 278 yards and a touchdown, while his favorite target against the Bengals, Antonio Brown, had seven receptions for 96 yards.

The Redskins march into Heinz Field following a tough loss to the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Despite holding a lead in the waning moments, a 77-yard connection between Eli Manning and Victor Cruz spelled defeat for Washington.

Griffin III will have his work cut out for him this week if he hopes to get his team back on track because he'll be facing one of the league's toughest defenses. He completed 20 of 28 passes last week, but will be facing a Steelers team that is second in the league in pass defense.

Date/Time: Sun. Oct. 28, 1 p.m. EST

Location: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pa.


Steelers: WDVE 102.5 FM; ESPN 970 AM
Redskin: ESPN 980 AM
