Steelers clinch 2nd seed

The Steelers clinched the division 2nd seed in the AFC with a 41-9 victory over the division rival Cleveland Brown.  The Steelers dominated in every phase even after the Steelers took out their starters beginning the 2nd half.

Notable Game Notes:

  • Troy Polamalu played for the first time in 2 games and intercepted a Coly McCoy pass on the third play of the game.
  • Bruce Arians called a good game with several short passes to take the pressure off Big Ben and the struggling offensive line
  • Eric Mangini was fired after the game.  There is rumors that Mike Holmgren, the Browns GM who had a say in the firing, might take over for head coach.
  • Big Ben and the o-line quite possibly had their best game of the game
  • Jonathan Dywer looked good in limited playing time

Steelers Win 27-3

The Pittsburgh Steelers dominated the 2-win Carolina Panther team in every aspect Thursday night during a 27-3 romping.

Big Ben Roethlisberger led the way with over 300 yards and a touchdown. Over 250 of those yards were gained in the first half.

Ngata to Appeal Fine

Baltimore defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said he will appeal the $15,000 fine he received for striking quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the face. No penalty was called. Roethlisberger suffered a broken nose. "I felt like there was no other way I could have played that play because I'm swimming the guard," Ngata told the Baltimore Sun. "He starts to duck, and my arm is coming down over the guard."

Ravens fined for illegal hits

Jameel Mclain was fined $40,000 for his illegal hit on Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller.  Mclain was not penalized on the play but league officials contacted NBC to inform the announcers that the play should have been penalized.

Haloti Ngata was fined $15000 for his hit on Ben Roethlisberger.  Obviously unintentional, Ngata's hand sneaked into Roethlisberger's face mask essentially breaking Big Ben's nose.  Roethlisberger never missed any snaps the rest of the game.

Roethlisberger to Undergo Surgery for Broken Nose

According to reports, Ben Roethlisberger will undergo surgery to fix his broken nose that he suffered in the first quarter of a hard earned 13-10 victory over the division rival Baltimore Ravens.

During the game, the Pittsburgh Steelers sideline reported Big Ben did NOT break his nose but all reviewers including the announcers could see Roethlisberger’s nose and it most certainly looked broken regardless of the sideline reports.  After the game, Roethlisberger confirmed that he had a broken nose.

Roethlisberger broke his nose on Pittsburgh's first series when Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata fist hit Roethlisberger in the face.  Ngata was not penalized on the play which again begs the question on whether the league has targeted the Pittsburgh Steelers and don’t apply the same standard to other teams.

"Someone just came through and a hand got through my facemask," Roethlisberger said after the game. "The next thing you know, I feel blood running down my face."

He spent much of the following series trying to stop the bleeding, and his jersey was soon spattered with blood.

Roethlisberger, already playing with a broken bone in his foot, still went 22 for 38 for 253 yards.

Harrison Fined 25k for Fitzpatrick Hit

Why doesn't James Harrison learn that he should just punch a player in the face and get his 25k worth?  Harrison was recently fined for the 4th time totaling 125k for a so called "illegal" hits.  This time costing him 25k.

The hit wasn't illegal, it was a clean it.  What is most frustrating is that Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan got into a fist fight during the game and ejected but they were only fined 25k. A week ago, Oakland Raider defensive end punched Ben Roethlisberger in the face and was ejected but he was only fined 20k.

James Harrison legally hits Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and he is fined 25k for the hit.

Huh!?!  How do you explain that Rodger Goodell?

Bills Steve Johnson blames god for dropped passes

According to Buffalo Bills receiver Steve Johnson, God was to blame for his miserable perform on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Johnson has been Buffalo’s breakout star, a 2008 seventh-round draft pick was on pace to break the club’s season record for touchdown passes. 

He should have caught his 10th touchdown Sunday. He should have beaten the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime Sunday. He was wide open for an arcing 40-yard bomb. He dropped it in the end zone.

Instead, the Steelers escaped with a close victory against the Bills with a game winning field goal in overtime concluding the day with a19-16 victory.

There’s no doubt that Johnson has been having a good year but yesterday was not his day.  Not only did he drop the game winning pass, he dropped many balls throughout the day including a very catchable ball that was later intercepted by the opportunistic Troy Polamalu.  Instead of taking responsibility for his actions, he decides to blame god instead via his Twitter account..
