Steelers look for 6th straight win as sliding Packers visit

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mike McCarthy grew up in Pittsburgh and the roots still run deep for the longtime Green Bay Packers coach.

Sunday night's visit to Heinz Field against the AFC North-leading Steelers will be a homecoming of sorts for McCarthy and several staff members, including defensive coordinator Dom Capers and special teams coordinator Ron Zook - both of whom worked for the Steelers during the early days of the Bill Cowher regime two decades ago.

"I think we should talk about the guys that are not from Pittsburgh and what the heck am I thinking hiring anybody that isn't from Pittsburgh?" McCarthy said with a laugh.
