NFL Draft: San Francisco 49ers Guaranteed No. 2 Overall Pick
- January 02, 2017

It appears the Steelers have made this game a full-blown bye week. Erving, a first-round pick in 2015 who played guard most of last season, started 37 games at left tackle for Florida State. That now ranks as the most points given up by any team in the National Football League this year, putting the team at a net loss of 188 points. In the first quarter, Robert Griffin III threw his first touchdown pass as a member of the Browns, finding TE Seth DeValve open in the flat for a 12-yard score ... (more...)

Haslam accepted responsibility for the struggles of this and previous seasons. "Clearly not an acceptable year", Haslam said. Is it discouraging at times? Yes.

The Steelers have won six straight heading into next week's regular-season finale against Cleveland (1-14), a game Roethlisberger would be OK with skipping now that there's little at stake so that Pittsburgh's regulars can get healthy. "After we scored, in my mind, we have the best defense in the National Football League, so it's a wrap", Juszczyk said. Here we go Steelers! "When the game finally ends and that's not the reality, it's something you have to deal with". (more...)

I hit him and he had an extra effort and reached out. Brown, cementing himself as one of the league's top receivers has 96 catches for 1,188 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. That fourth quarter was a nightmare that will be replayed over and over in the heads of Ravens' players and coaches.

Roethlisberger follow up by marching the Steelers' offense down the field and hooking up with WR Antonio Brown for the game-winning touchdown, where Brown stretched across the goal line in heroic fashion to win the AFC North crown. "So it's neat to see that pay off for a guy like that". Anyway, the Steelers will be the No. 3 seed in the AFC and host the No. 6 seed during wild-card weekend on either January 7 or 8. (more...)

Tomlin said that the plan called for Brown to score and that's what he did. "Particularly in the wake of feeling the way I felt at one point in that diversion and feeling like you let folks down and you blew it. That's how against the Ravens he logged his fifth game in 2016 with 120-plus rushing yards (he finished with 122 rushing yards on 20 carries). He said he also would like to have Brown available after being forced to play on the road at Denver last season without him as a result of ... (more...)

Roethlisberger nodded when asked if it stirred any memories of Holmes' famous toe drag, though he was simply far more relieved to be in the position in the first place.
