PANTHERS (2-12) at STEELERS (10-4)

8:20 p.m. at Heinz Field (65,050) in Pittsburgh, PA


NFL Network (locally KDKA-TV, Channel 2)

Bob Papa, play-by-play; Matt Millen and Joe Theismann, analysis; Alex Flanagan, sideline reporter


Steelers Radio Network (WDVE-FM, 102.5, WBGG-AM, 970; WBVP-AM, 1230, WMBA-AM, 1460)


Since 1995 when Carolina entered the NFL, the Steelers have only played the Panthers four times. The Steelers lead the series 3-1 and are 2-0 against the Panthers in games played in Pittsburgh. In their last meeting, the Steelers trounced the Panthers, 37-3 on Dec. 17, 2006 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.


The Steelers (10-4) need to win to keep pace with the Ravens (10-4) in their chase for the AFC North Division title. The Steelers are expected to win big over a struggling Panthers squad (2-12) thatís expected to have a new coach next season.

The good news for the Steelers on the injury front is that TE Heath Miller will play after missing the past two games due to a concussion Ö However, the Steelers will be without SS Troy Polamalu for the second straight game. Polamalu has a lower leg injury thatís affecting his ankle, Achillesí tendon and calf Ö DE Aaron Smith will miss his eighth straight game with a torn triceps.

For the Panthers, FB Tony Fiammetta (ankle) is out, CB Chris Gamble (ankle) is listed as doubtful while DE Tyler Brayton (hip) is questionable.


"No, not after you get your butts whipped the week before. Everyone is excited to get back out there. We were ready to play the next day (after losing to the Jets).Ē

_ Steelers LB James Farrior when asked if itís hard to play a Thursday night game this late in the season


The Steelers are favored by 14.


Steelers 33, Panthers 10
