I had been touting this week as the week the Niners fall from the two seed and now it looks bad. The Steelers have lost their best defensive player to a suspension and their quarterback to a high ankle sprain. It will be so much harder, now. To top it off, Petersen may be back for the Vikings to give us trouble. I hope for the best, but it looks like the Steelers are not going to do it. My main hope lies with both injuries in the Niners defense and their lack of a consistent offense. My prediction is
Steelers 19 Niners 12
Only one touchdown in the game. Any other predictions?
