The Steelers had just lost to the Dallas Cowboys in overtime Sunday evening and emotions were raw.
It didn’t matter who was under center in Cleveland on Sunday when not a single running back was immune from fumbleitis.
Heading into the playoffs, the Penguins had really good special teams numbers, tied for fifth in the entire league on the power play and the third best penalty killing team. However, in this series there seems to be nothing special for special teams as the Philadelphia Flyers continue to completely own the Penguins who seem to have no answers.
It wasn’t the ending anyone was expecting. The Steelers headed into Denver looking for a victory this Wild Card Weekend and a chance to move on in the playoffs; instead, they were stunned in overtime after rallying to tie the game in the second half.
The Pittsburgh Steelers saw their opportunity to control their own destiny slip through their hands after a loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday. There has been much debate both locally and nationally about the Steelers’ decision to let Ben Roethlisberger play despite being hampered by a high ankle sprain.
