Bengals at Steelers game features matchup of dynamic duos
- September 16, 2016

Those games have come down to the playoffs where the victor goes to the Super Bowl. Assuming he doesn't have any setbacks and is able to go fully on Friday, Shazier figures to play against the Bengals. "He's just got a motor", Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "You have to ask somebody else to see if they have any emotional carryover". The Cowboys run this play often, and while Olivier Vernon gave Jason Witten fits last week, I don't expect the Redskins defensive ends to have ... (more...)

Just as it sometimes looks like a contender. We all know the Cowboys are primarily a zone scheme rushing team, and they don't tend to use gap scheme plays too often. Pittsburgh lived a charmed life, as another apparent fumble by Brown was ruled an incompletion. "Without (retired) Heath Miller?' My message was, 'Well, we've got Sammie Coates , Eli, and all the tight ends (and) DeAngelo Williams"'. (more...)
Why Didn't Josh Norman Cover Antonio Brown? Why Didn't Josh Norman Cover Antonio Brown?
- September 15, 2016

Heyward respects the budding rivalry with the Bengals, but he doesn't believe it has surpassed the long-standing one the Steelers have with the Ravens. Those are hardly pedestrian numbers, but for a player of Brown's talent, they pale in comparison to some of his other games. It never seemed to be that way with Baltimore. (more...)

Especially in Pittsburgh. It's a divisional game. Divisional matchups are never boring and this NFL Week 2 game preview proves it with a grudge match between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers. DeSean Jackson had six catches for 102 yards for Washington (0-1). Roethlisberger also passed Hall of Famer Dan Fouts for 12th on the all-time passing yards list and moved past Hall of Famer Joe Montana to tie Vinny Testaverde for 12th on the all-time passing touchdowns list.

Steelers turn gambles into points in rout of Redskins
- September 15, 2016

Learn from it and you get better from it.' You critique that film like your life depended on it. Trailing 6 to 0 in the 2nd quarter on a 4th and 1 from the Washington 29, Pittsburgh made a decision to roll the dice and go for it. Washington gained only 55 yards on the ground. Pinball Rogers: Rogers' first career touchdown catch in his National Football League debut was a pinball special. (more...)

The Redskins, on the other hand, manifested their fans fears by losing to the Steelers and proving that they were probably not ready for prime time. The Redskins could learn a thing or two from Brown, whose performance during the game was clearly the result of weeks and months of practice. (more...)

- September 15, 2016

Restaurant workers took to social media and blasted Williams for not tipping, but he was having none of the backlash. Unfortunately for the server, identified as Christina L. (For the record, the waitress claims he was only there for 45 mins). Williams added that he ordered chicken and shrimp in his pasta, but it was put in his salad. (more...)
Steelers will continue to ride with DeAngelo Williams
- September 14, 2016

DeAngelo Williams-starting at running back in place of the suspended Le'Veon Bell-was a major force, especially in the second half. Ben Roethlisberger has quarterbacked the last four wins, with Kordell Stewart leading the first two. "We just didn't make the necessary plays to win". Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden spoke about the team's relationship with the military. Sometimes, a team puts its second cornerback on their opponent's best wide receiver , though that usually means it ... (more...)
Big Ben has Steelers running like clockwork
- September 14, 2016

Again the issue will be that Cousins will have to do it all alone if he does not get a running game. "The call came from the sideline". "We didn't care where Norman was, ' Tomlin said". "We're very aggressive", Mitchell said. "Needed to throw the ball somewhere else or underneath", Cousins said of the picks. Sure, they spent much of the game trying to come from behind, but that kind of imbalance usually spells disaster for an offense. (more...)

Click next to see the internet's reaction on the Monday night twerk. Well, Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers showed what they think of it on Monday Night Football, while Brown also twerked his way to a penalty and probably a fine, and the memes split between enjoying his celebrations or roasting those he destroyed.

After his second touchdown reception of the night, a 26-yard strike from Ben Roethlisberger in the third quarter, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown twerked. "That's all I can say". Quarterback Kirk Cousins and tight end Jordan Reed will be near top fantasy numbers for the week, but I expect the many weapons for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers to tally a few more than Washington.

NFL consults with colorblind experts on Color Rush uniforms
- September 14, 2016

As much as I hate color rush uniforms, these are pretty sweet. In fact, this appears to be as conservative a look as any team will adorn in these games all season long. Click next and take a look at all the uniforms by conference and division. The Color Rush program is expected to continue in future seasons and any club not wearing their Color Rush uniform on the field this year will have the opportunity to do so in future seasons.

The Steelers then drove 67 yards on 14 plays on their next drive, and received a little luck at the end of it. The Redskins, behind a 33-yard, Cousins-to-Jackson connection, drove into Steelers territory again, but on fourth-and-6, Cousins' pass to Thompson was only good for 5 yards. (more...)
Roethlisberger throws for 3 TDs as Steelers beat Redskins
- September 13, 2016

There wasn't a lot of running room in the first half, but the line started to wear down the Redskins toward the end of the half. It was the 23 100-yard game for Williams, and his fifth with the Steelers. He threw two interceptions and saw his streak of 16 straight regular-season games with a touchdown pass snapped. "Great throw by Ben", Brown said. LOSING BALANCE: The Redskins passed 43 times and attempted only 12 runs. (more...)

- September 13, 2016

For starters, former Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood will start on the left side Monday night for the Redskins and that should be a tasty matchup for Steelers right guard David DeCastro . The time has come for the 2016 Pittsburgh Steelers regular season to officially get underway. Cousins went 30 of 43 for 329 yards without a touchdown and two interceptions - the first of which was his first at home in 253 pass attempts. (more...)
Norman and Brown talk at a minimum
- September 13, 2016

Norman made waves this offseason for his critiques of seemingly every big-name receiver in the league, but Brown's name was never mentioned in anything less than a reverent context. "Our defense did a great job of getting it, so we stayed in the plus, but for us to be up over one-plus giveaway per game, that's too much for a group that wants to be great". (more...)

He's become wiser with age and has found a way to stay upright as he understands his great worth.

DeCastro's new deal is reportedly worth $58.07 million, and will earn him $10 million per season following 2016, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport . DeCastro, Pittsburgh's first-round pick in 2012 out of Stanford University, was in the final year of a five-year contract.
