Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley providing stout presence in the middle of Detroit's defensive line

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is well aware of what he'll be up against this weekend when Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and the Detroit Lions pay a visit.

Roethlisberger says a quarterback can "end up dead" if he's not careful against Detroit's defensive line. Suh says he figures he has to take that as a compliment.

Suh and Fairley are indeed a tandem to be feared this season. Drafted in the first round a season apart, they're anchoring a defense that is a big part of why the Lions are in first place in the NFC North.
