The Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers face off on Sunday in one of the games of the day in the NFL Week 8 schedule. The Steelers are attempting to string together two straight wins for the first time this season, and hope they can achieve that at home in this Week 8 match up. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the NFL Sunday Ticket (details below).
The Steelers picked up a win in the AFC North on the road last Sunday. Ben Roethlisberger suffered due to a mixed up offensive line, and was sacked three times, however, Jonathan Dwyer put on a spectacular performance to stir the Steelers' rush attack into life.
The Steelers have the chance to reassert themselves in the division race if they can win today.
The Redskins meanwhile are at the foot of the NFC East standings. However, despite their poor record, they have been much improved this year, and have been competitive in every game they've played so far this season.
The Redskins amazingly have the top rush offense in the league. Robert Griffin III has led a revamped offensive line this year, which has instilled new hope for Washington fans. He and Alfred Morris have been solid for the Redskins; with Morris rushing for more than 100 yards in three of his past four games.
Washington will be hoping that their defense can put on a stronger showing than in recent weeks so that they can give Griffin more room to play with.
