Steelers @ Packers Pregame Review

Steelers (6-8) At Green Bay (7-6-1)
Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013, 4:25 p.m. ET

Since 1972, the Steelers have won 20 division titles. This year will not be one of them. The Steelers are also 6-time Super Bowl champions. This year will  probably not be one of them. Sunday's game is the first meeting between both teams since the Packers beat the Steelers 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV. Green Bay can lay claim to their third straight NFC North title if they beat Pittsburgh and Chicago.

The Steelers are a long shot for post season. They'll need to beat Green Bay and Cleveland. In addition, Miami, NY, San Diego and Baltimore must finish with 8-8 records for tie breakers to break in Pittsburgh's direction.

The last time the Steelers played at Green Bay it was November of 2005. Charlie Batch was QB for the injured Roethlisberger. Steelers won 20-10.

Green Bay's QB Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out to play Sunday. Steelers DE Brett Keisel is expected to play (he's missed four out of the last five games).

Need To Know: Steelers now own the oldest secondary in the NFL with Polamalu at 32, Ryan Clark at 34 and Ike Tayler at 33., Fox Spots, Steelers Depot
