Steelers, Dolphins look to find way in packed AFC


PITTSBURGH — SNOW GLOBE? The early forecast for Sunday is a wintry mix of sleet and snow with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark. It sounds nearly as nasty as Miami’s last trip to Pittsburgh, which was played in a monsoon on a field that looked more like a slip-and-slide. The Steelers won 3-0 on a field goal with 17 seconds left.

The Dolphins haven’t done much in foul weather lately, though they could take some inspiration from the University of Miami, which beat Pittsburgh at Heinz Field the day after Thanksgiving with the thermostat set at a brisk 31 degrees.

THE OTHER WALLACE: Journeyman Cody Wallace will make his first NFL start on Sunday as the third center to play for the Steelers this year. Wallace played all of 58 snaps in five-plus seasons before signing with Pittsburgh in September.

“He’s a capable guy,” Roethlisberger said. “He’s been here a while, so he’ll be ready.”
