Jerome "The Bus" Bettis played for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1996 to 2005. He was a fan favorite and culminated his career by helping lead the Steelers to an improbable playoff run in his last season, and a Super Bowl victory in his hometown of Detroit before retiring.

John Malecki describes the first time he got cut by a NFL team as heart-dropping. He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Tennessee in April 2010. Then, all within the month of August, he was waived by Tennessee, signed by Cleveland and waived by Cleveland.

Thursday's win could stand out as one of the signature games of Ben Roethlisberger’s career. And that says quite a bit, considering his career has included two Super Bowl victories, three games with a perfect passer rating, and numerous moments where he has used his unique play style to redefine what a quarterback can be.

Head coach Mike Tomlin could head into 49ers territory with a depleted roster. QB Ben Roethlisberger, safety Troy Polamalu, and center Maurkice Pouncey are all questionable for Monday's matchup - and while LaMarr Woodley could return this week, the Steelers will be without suspended star James Harrison.

Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been suspended for one game for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last Thursday.

Ben Roethlisberger suffered a high ankle sprain, but returned in the second half to lead his team to a 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night. A fourth-quarter interception by William Gay prevented a Cleveland touchdown and a hobbled Ben found Antonio Brown for a 79-yard touchdown two plays later for the game-clinching score.
