Tony Sparano's team has yet to win at home so far this season.

The storyline
Ben Roethlisberger worked through the rust last week in his return from suspension. Now he meets a road crowd for the first time since the latest sexual allegations against him, where the reaction could be quite hostile.

Why you should watch
The Dolphins need to find a way to translate their gritty road style (3-0), to the comforts of home. Brandon Marshall will see plenty of Troy Polamalu over the top, but Davone Bess is making teams pay for that tactic. Both teams are in the thick of the playoff chase.

Did you know?
The Steelers have won four consecutive games against the Dolphins. ... Pittsburgh leads the NFL in scoring defense. ... Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown is averaging 5.7 yards per carry in the fourth quarter. ... Miami's Chad Henne has four 300-yard passing games in his last five at home.
