PITTSBURGH (GSM) — Legendary R&B group the Dramatics had an ear-catching song titled, “I wanna go outside, in the rain!” There were a lot of “dramatics;” coupled with a rollercoaster of emotions in the game between the Steelers and Lions at Heinz Field.
“It might sound crazy,” but the Steelers were complicit in helping the Lions avoid a potential 0-17 season in a 16-16 tie game Sunday. The final score was 16-16 and the first time the Steelers finished with a tie since Sept. 8 2018 against the Cleveland Browns at First Energy Stadium. The last time the Lions ended in a tie was one year to-the-day afterwards against the Cardinals, 27-27 on Sept. 8, 2019.
Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin, clearly upset about his team failing to squeak out a win, addressed the media after the game. He said his teamed lacked, “Core fundamental things.” In his remarks, the frustration continued, “We didn’t tackle well enough throughout the game defensively. In the most critical moments we didn’t maintain possession of the ball on offense, and so we’ve got to accept responsibility for the outcome of the game, and we do.”
Pittsburgh’s lone touchdown in the game was on a 9-yard pass from Mason Rudolph to WR James Washington in the opening drive. The rest of the scores were from the leg of place kicker Chris Boswell. The Lions, however, scored two touchdowns but a missed extra point from Ryan Santoso locked them into their score.
Next week, the Steelers travel to Los Angeles to face the Chargers who are at 5-4 and in 2nd place in the AFC West.
PITTSBURGH (GSM) — In a valiant effort to put points on the board, it was the kicker that saved the day for the Steelers.
Kicker Chris Boswell put the final nail in the Bears’ proverbial coffin with a last minute field goal to make the score 29-27 with 26 seconds left in regulation.
The Steelers have won 4 straight games and sit in 2nd place in the AFC North behind the Baltimore Ravens.
Steelers' K Chris Boswell is the first player in NFL history to make two 50+ yard field goals, make a game-winning field goal and recover an opponent's fumble all in the same game…#BertschyBits#HereWeGo#CHIvsPIT@StatsBySTATS
(GSM) – It appears as though the Los Angeles Rams are trying to go on a significant run in the near future after a trade that will potentially help their defense significantly.
Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller has reportedly been traded to for 2 draft picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. Miller is an eight-time Pro Bowler and has an impressive resume under his belt.
