Pittsburgh's running back play is quite predictable. James Conner is back and running well again, but Benny Snell should get another chance later.
Ben Roethlisberger threw for 311 yards with two touchdowns and an interception and the Pittsburgh Steelers fended off a spirited comeback by the Denver Broncos 26-21 on Sunday.
The big play from the rookie came one play after a would-be 81-yard punt return touchdown by Diontae Johnson was taken off the board.

Steelers are using their extra Game Day roster spots this week. Shorter list of inactives, plus rookie RB Anthony McFarland looks to make his NFL debut this week. Inactive: QB Josh Dobbs, ILB Uly Gilbert, G David DeCastro, DL Carlos Davis, TE Zach Gentry
Big Ben threw three touchdown passes on just 32 attempts in Week 1, but the Broncos have sacked him at least three times in seven of nine meetings.
They're the youngest receiver group in the NFL. But if there's a generational divide between them and the 38-year-old QB, it doesn't show on the field.
Steelers guard Stefen Wisniewski, who started the season opener in place of David DeCastro, was put on IR with a pectoral injury following Friday's practice.
The mother of Antwon Rose Jr. told ESPN of Maurkice Pouncey's decision not to wear her son's name on his helmet: "If you didn't want to wear Antwon's name, say that and don't do it. Don't set the movement backwards because of your own personal agenda."
Center Maurkice Pouncey became the second Steelers player to break from the team's unified decision to place the name of police shooting victim Antwon Rose Jr. on their helmets for the 2020 season.
Roethlisberger, 38, is feeling the effects of his first NFL game in a year, but his arm is "the only thing that doesn't hurt."
Teammates were surprised by lineman Al Villanueva's decision to put the name of a Black soldier killed on duty in Iraq on the back of his helmet rather than the name of a Black teenager killed by police in 2018, as the Steelers had decided as a team.

Steelers right tackle Zach Banner said in a video posted to Twitter that he's having season-ending knee surgery on Friday. Banner was injured in Monday's season-opening win over the Giants.
Stephen A, Max, Marcus Spears and Paul Finebaum debate what happened to the Giants on Monday Night Football, if Sunday was just one bad game for Brady and if the Big Ten will play football this fall.
