Great win.. did the OP bash Redman for not going down after getting the 1st down.
Clark's hit was legal (in form) but it came well after the ball hit the ground with Clark directly facing the play and able to see the ball. It was a late hit and could have been avoided. Even if it was a bad call ... you still don't leave a chance for a penalty when you just stopped 3rd and goal from the 2 and now have 1st and goal from the 1. Make plays when you NEED to make plays.

Ok, the running play wasn't a touch down. It's 2nd and goal from the 2 inch line. Sneak. Sneak. Score. The refs denied the Steelers a 0.5% chance of stopping the other team with 2nd and goal from 2 inches.
No. But that makes him even stupider. Continuing to run in that situation is your opponents LAST chance. All you have to do is lay down to eliminate it. Everyone knows 2:00 is exactly enough time to kneel out and win.
We give away two games on the road in the fourth Q against two substandard teams - and a third against a good team.
We go in and dominate the defending champs who are 6-2 and getting every call they possibly can. We come back in the fourth to grab the win.
Somehow that is the games that pisses you off?
I have heard from friends who are fans of 1) the Cowboys, 2) the Browns, and 3) the Lions, and all three were impressed that we fought through this game to victory.
So you think a 4 point win was about right???? I saw a game where simple mental mistakes on the Steelers' players part made about 14 points of difference.

On the road, I don't care if the score is 2-0. A win is a win.. Learn the game, and put your Playstation controls down.
OK- look at the play again- Teh DB's are taught to knock the ball out. Not just stop in mid stride.. Learn the game.
