Fortunately for the Steelers, the Raiders aren't exactly an offensive juggernaut. The Raiders averaged 13.5 points through the first two games of the regular season, which includes a 35-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins last week. In Week 2, Pittsburgh dominated the New York Jets 27-10 without Harrison and Polamalu.
The Steelers duo will have an extra week of rest with a Week 4 bye. Coach Mike Tomlin needs both players as close to 100 percent as possible because the Steelers play twice in five days against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 7 and then on "Thursday Night Football" against the Tennessee Titans on Oct. 11.
