Heyward-Bey suffered a concussion in a Thursday, July 31 training camp practice. ***UPDATE - Heyward-Bey has a history with concussions, but the veteran came back later in the preseason and made the Steelers 53-man roster.

Week 16: vs Kansas City Chiefs

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. This game has profound playoff implications for both teams - look for a hard-fought contest. Ben Roethlisberger has thrown for 340 or more passing yards in five of his last six starts, and bombed Atlanta for 27/35 for 360 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions (with one sack taken for -7 yards) most recently. He, Antonio Brown, and Le'Veon Bell are automatic starters here in Week 16, while Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller should all be considered seriously as well. There are a lot of balls and lots of yardage to go around on the Steelers' offense right now. The Kansas City pass D is currently second in the NFL in terms of passing yards allowed per game (199.2 net yards allowed on average), but they've given out 21 passing scores vs. a league-worst four interceptions generated this year. Though the Chiefs do have 38 sacks (tied for sixth in the NFL), they generally pile up big sack numbers at home in thunderous Arrowhead Stadium, rather than on the road. Pittsburgh is currently 17th in the NFL with 32 sacks allowed. Derek Carr was sacked four times for -20 yards at Arrowhead last week (27/56 for 202 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown), while Drew Stanton was sacked twice at University of Phoenix Stadium (for -14 yards) on his way to 15/30 for 225 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown. Roethlisberger has a tougher-than-usual pass coverage on the way, but he shouldn't throw a gaggle of interceptions against this surprisingly not-ball-hawking secondary.
