Dissecting Most Crucial Matchups in Steelers' Week 16 Contest with Packers

It was not too long ago that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers were battling for football supremacy in Super Bowl XLV. Now the two teams are hanging on for their playoff lives as they approach their Week 16 matchup.

The status of one of the most critical players in this contest is still up in the air as Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has yet to be cleared to play, according to Packers.com.

If Rodgers doesn’t play, Matt Flynn will look to build upon his four-touchdown performance last week against the Dallas Cowboys. Needless to say, Pittsburgh’s secondary will be tested regardless of who is under center.

The Steelers are coming off a big win against the Cincinnati Bengals, in what was one of their most complete team efforts of the season. They will need a similar performance if they want to come out of Green Bay with a victory.

Here is a look at the key individual matchups to watch on Sunday.
