Securing a Pittsburgh Steelers playoff win in Kansas City, and then in New England, will require a few vintage Big Ben moments.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which first reported the charge, police smelled marijuana coming from his rental car and found cigars that later tested positive for marijuana.
The marijuana charge was added on Dec. 15, and he has an initial court appearance scheduled for Jan. 23, according to the circuit court website.
“The Packers are aware of the matter involving Geronimo Allison,” the team said in a statement to ESPN.com. “Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will refrain from making any further comment.”
Allison was signed as an undrafted free agent from Illinois. He caught 12 passes for 202 yards with two touchdowns in the regular season and had one catch for 8 yards in last Sunday’s playoff win over the New York Giants.
He’s expected to be a significant contributor in this Sunday’s divisional-round game at Dallas, especially if Jordy Nelson’s rib injury keeps him out.
