The Steelers are coming off the delayed Wednesday afternoon victory in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens, but as they prepare for the quick turnaround on their Week 13 matchup, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's status for the game is up in the air.

The veteran QB was listed as questionable on the team's latest injury report.

A win on Monday Night Football would bring the Steelers to and NFL-best 12-0 on the season. While Washington's record doesn't make it seem like a major threat to Pittsburgh, even if Roethlisberger can't play, it does have a scary defensive line that could wreak havoc on a less experienced QB like Mason Rudolph.

Conventional wisdom says Big Ben will find a way to tough it out and get on the field by Monday Night, but regardless, Washington and that defensive line shouldn't be overlooked.
