    The Steelers can downplay this game all they want . They can treat it as any other game on the schedule . The fact is , it isnt any other game and they wont treat it as such . There is alot of bad blood between these two teams and you will see it on Sunday . From the season ending hits on LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown , the Steelers had this game circled on their calendar since the schedule was released . The fact that Vontaze Burrfict wont be on the field wont matter to the Steelers . This one has the makings of a knock down , drag out bar fight .
