The Steelers (12-3) wrapped up the AFC North for the second straight season and third time in the last four years a few weeks ago.

Roethlisberger flipped a five-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter only 3:45 later to give the Steelers a 10-0 edge.

DeCastro said he's looking forward to the bye week. "You're always anxious about the bye week but at the same time we're all professionals, old enough now to be able to take care of yourself and know what you need to do, even if you're on the practice field, so not too anxious".
