After the Kansas City Chiefs visit the New England Patriots in Foxboro for Monday Night Football, they'll be back on the national stage the following week with a Sunday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
We're a week away from talking about the Steelers but we need to mention that QB Ben Roethlisberer has a thumb injury -- Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports he has a break in his thumb.
Despite that, Roethlisberger is expected to play in the Steelers next game, which comes on Sunday night against the Chiefs in Week 12. Pittsburgh has a bye this weekend.
Apparently the injury is a recurring thing and it shouldn't make a significant difference in the game considering he played well enough for the Steelers to beat the Cincinnati Bengals last week.
OK, back to the Patriots.
