Cardinals at Steelers 1 p.m. ARI by 4
Ben Roethlisberger wants to play in this game, but he won’t, meaning that Michael Vick will have to try to keep up with the NFL’s highest-scoring team. Arizona won’t have linebacker Alex Okafor (calf injury) coming off the edge, so it signed veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney. Given the Cards’ success with oldsters, look for Freeney to get after Vick with a vengeance. People who have been waiting all this time for Martavis Bryant to make his season debut will likely get it, but they shouldn’t expect much with Roethlisberger out. Still, it will be nice to see the rangy WR out there, and his deep-ball skills could be put to use right away if Pittsburgh finds itself in catch-up mode. In 2014, Bryant averaged 21.1 yards per reception.
