About Miller

A favorite target of Roethlisberger, he made his season debut last week after suffering a knee injury at the end of last season.

Who has the edge?

Miller is a tough matchup for linebackers when he’s healthy. He had a career year in 2012 with 71 catches for 816 yards and eight touchdowns. Said Greenway: “He has an ability to find or expand zone coverages to get open and find spots. Any time that a quarterback has a comfort level with a guy, you know he’s going to look for him in key situations, and [he’s] a guy we obviously need to take away from them.”

Advantage: Miller

THE BIG NUMBER

29 Passing attempts Roethlisberger needs to pass Terry Bradshaw (3,901) for the most in Steelers history.

BREAKOUT DAY

Matt Cassel, Vikings QB: It will be interesting to see how the offense responds with Cassel at the helm. He has more experience than Christian Ponder, but he must avoid turnovers. Cassel threw 12 interceptions and only six touchdown passes in nine starts in Kansas City last season.
