The Steelers are gearing up for another playoff run, but will their path to the Super Bowl begin at Heinz Field after a week's rest, or will it take them on the road?

That's only partly within Pittsburgh's control. They need to take care of the rival Browns in Cleveland and get some help from across the state in Cincinnati.

If the Steelers win and the Bengals defeat the Baltimore Ravens, the Steelers will jump from the #5 position to #2 as the AFC North champion. If the Patriots are upset by the Bills as well, the Steelers can even grab the AFC's #1 overall seed.

QB Seneca Wallace will get the start once again for the Browns as they try to play spoiler, with Colt McCoy still sidelined by a concussion he received from Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is still recovering from spraining his ankle in the same game, so it's not known how much playing time he will have. With a playoff berth secured, is a chance at winning the division worth the risk of further injury?
