News item: Ben Roethlisberger, who has been playing on a badly sprained ankle, revealed that he suffered a setback during the Steelers' regular-season finale against the Cleveland Browns. He still is expected to start at Denver on Sunday.

Schmuck's take: The Steelers are going to be playing very short with running back Rashard Mendenhall gone for the postseason and leading tackler Ryan Clark unable to play at altitude, so why are they such a heavy favorite to beat the Broncos in Denver? Bonus take: That's easy. Because the oddsmakers are no longer putting much value on the Tebow factor. How soon we forget.
