We have a winner! Our Pittsburgh Steelers returned to the win column on Sunday night in a BIG way, crushing the KC Chiefs 43-14 on Sunday. Today Mrs. Black-N-Gold is back with The Good, The Bad & The Ugly from the victory.
Boy we've got alot of good to discuss. How could you not following a 43-14 win? This was a total team win, too, from top to bottom, coaching on down to the players. Coach Tomlin had his team well prepared this week, in all facets of the game. The offense came ready to play as they welcomed back RB Le'Veon Bell. Bell was a beast, rushing for 144 yards on 18 carriers plus 5 receptions for 34 yards. The only this #26 didn't have was a TD but those will come soon enough. QB Ben Roethlisberger and the passing game bounced back this week. Big Ben came up big, completing 22 of 27 passes for 300 yards and 5 touchdowns. WRs Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates led the air attack. AB caught 4 passes for 64 yards and 2 TDs. Coates was 6 for 79.
And how about that defense? They were in QB Alex Smith's back pocket all night, especially DE Cam Heyward. Cam was the Man, scoring a hat track with 3 sacks. LB Vince Williams, subbing for the injured Ryan Shazier, was a man possessed. He recorded 1 sack, and led the field with 16 tackles, 14 solo and 2 for loss. Many of the players that were asked to "step up" in place of the injured, did just that (Williams, S Jordan Dangerfield, G BJ Finney). The Steelers came ready, willing and able to play on the big stage of Sunday Night Football.
Once again, this is bad meaning bad, not bad meaning good. Just think how bad this team could be if they played like this every week. These are some bad mofos wearing that Black-N-Gold.
If this keeps up, things are going to turn real ugly for the rest of the NFL, real quick.
The Steelers sit high atop the AFC North at 3-1 but they're not alone. The Baltimorons lost to Oakland and are in a tie for 1st with the Steelers and their 3-1 record. The Bungles won to even their record at 2-2. And the Clowns are still bringing up the rear while they continue to search for the win column with an 0-4 record. Our Steelers stay home this week for a 1pm game versus the New York Jets and their 1-3 mark. It might be good to beware the trap game. You don't want to fly too high and get grounded by these Jets. Continue to stay the course and keep it steady in the win column. Let's Go Steelers!!!!!!
