    Why can't fans place the blame on where it really belongs, the players? The defense came out and made a big stop, Brown fumbled and returned momentum to the Cowboys.

    The defense came out and made a huge stop to force OT after special teams gave up big return, Ben proceeded to give Dallas the win.

    The Dallas game was loss in crunch time due to turnovers. To bad the message board gurus can't grasp that concept and see it as clear as crystal.
    I'm not debating the players lost the game, simply stating I don't like just taking a knee with time left on the clock.

    I have zero problem with taking a knee in that situation.

    our OL had been manhandled on the previous series.

    some of you guys are reaching on this one.

    Because the series before Ben was sacked on 2 straight plays.
    He drops back, gets plastered and Dallas recovers the fumble...
    Thats why.

    Right on the money...
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    why go into overtime then if your getting manhandled. why not gamble on a play or two?

    lets say you were a dallas fan watching this game. in this situation would you like to see:

    A) the steelers take a knee and go into overtime with timeouts left
    B) the steelers take a couple shots down the field where they could possibly complete a pass or get a PI call(with timeouts left) that would put them in FG range to win OR possibly throw an int. that the cowboys could return 75+ yards for the TD

    It must be opposite day. This is exactly backwards.

    On the road, you try to win it in regulation. At home, go into OT with the home field advantage.

    If you haven't seen our OL allow a three-man rush to get immediate pressure on Ben before, you must not watch many Steeler games.

    How will it happen when they have 2 elite rushers like Ware and Spencer, at least one of whom will be matched against Kelvin Beachum?
