The Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders have historically engaged in one of the NFL's most iconic rivalries, and though they're decades removed from the heyday of their ire, both Steeler Nation and Raider Nation know that games against each other still carry bragging rights.

As such, the Men of Steel would be wise not to overlook their Silver n' Black laden opponents, despite their anemic play thus far in 2012 and correlating 0-2 record. 

After all, as the Black and Gold's last trip to Oakland in 2006 proved, winning in the Black Hole is never a sure thing.  Likewise, the struggling Raiders know that a win over the Steelers would go a long way towards seizing a confidence and momentum that has thoroughly eluded them thus far.

Pittsburgh looks to secure its first winning record of the young campaign, while Oakland hopes to finally get a notch in the win column.  Pride will be on the line when the game kicks off Sunday evening, live from Oakland-Alameda Coliseum. 

Here are nine items for Steelers fans to watch for during Week 3.
