The Washington Redskins look to rebound from their Week 7 loss on Sunday, when they head to Pennsylvania to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, in an inter-conference clash.

Pittsburgh enters the game with a 3-3 record, but the Steelers are a perfect 2-0 at Heinz Field this season. Pittsburgh is coming off of a 24-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7, when the two teams met on Sunday Night Football.

Luckily for the Redskins, the Steelers have yet to win back-to-back games this season.

Washington, meanwhile, is coming off of a 27-23 loss to the New York Giants. London Fletcher's status for the game is in doubt, while it looks like neither Pierre Garcon nor Brandon Meriweather will play for the Redskins on Sunday.

Rashard Mendenhall is expected to miss Sunday's game for the Steelers. Mendenhall has been dealing with an Achilles injury, and is likely to sit out for at least another week. Jonathan Dwyer is likely to start in Mendenhall's place.

Game Time/Date: Sunday, Oct. 28; 1 p.m. ET

Location: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pa.
