The Washington Redskins' defense knew exactly what to expect from the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense. No longer a run-it-down-your-throat team, the Steelers feature a heavy dose of Ben Roethlisberger throwing to a variety of weapons.
The bigger Ben is, the harder he falls. That's the Washington Redskins' mentality going into Sunday's game against Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ben Roethlisberger wouldn't even entertain the possibility of a Washington Redskins defense without London Fletcher, who has played 231 straight games.
London Fletcher's streak of 231 regular-season NFL games played could be in jeopardy Sunday. The Washington Redskins middle linebacker missed Wednesday's practice with balance problems to go with a sore right hamstring suffered in last Sunday's loss to the New York Giants.
