Ahhh, thats a good thread question. But ultimately we'll never know. Maybe the Steelers still win that game, but they get more worn down and aren't able to sustain their unprecedented run in the following weeks. Maybe they get even more momentum by beating a healthy Palmer in a close game. But I think odds are that no doubt the Steelers reaped an incredible benefit from Palmer's injury.
