The NBC broadcast crew alerted its viewing audience to the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs began the last drive, from their own eight-yard line, that the team was 0-for-41 when it came to scoring a touchdown when starting inside their own 20-yard line. Tyler Palko’s team is now 0-for-42, but the Chiefs were able to knock a field goal through to make the score 13-9 in favor of Pittsburgh. [...]

A few weeks ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers indicated their plans to use the franchise tag on safety Troy Polamalu next season–that is if the two sides failed to reach an agreement on a long-term deal before then. With the team’s first regular season game set to take place on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, it looks like the Steelers won’t have to worry about using the tag anymore. According to NFL.com’s[...]

Over the last decade-plus, no team has played stifling defense to the extent of the Pittsburgh Steelers. No team has buried ball carriers in their tracks better than the team in black and gold. Which is why it should surprise no one that on a consistent basis, a member of that vaunted defense is generally in the running for the NFL’s Defensive Player Of The Year award[...]
Harrison was fined again for illegal hits. Polamalu backs him up It seems like the more big, playmaking hits James Harrison makes, the more money becomes deducted from his salary. Why? Because of the new rules to protect offensive players from helmet-to-helmet hits. Harrison was fined for $25,000 for another big hit which was on …
1. This Defense Is REALLY, REALLY Good Seven turnovers, including an impressive interception in the end zone by the best safety in football, Troy Polamalu, are evidence of that. Seven takeaways by one team just doesn’t happen. Teams are too careful with the ball after even the first turnover they commit. They shut down the …
San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday 8:20pm
2-1 after three weeks of NFL action with the GOTW picks and week four’s game slate provides a lot of big games which made it kinda tough to choose. This week’s matchups include Jets vs. Saints, Chargers vs. Steelers, Ravens vs. Patriots, Cowboys vs. Broncos, and Packers vs. Vikings. At the end of the day, I had to go with the Sunday Night Football game of Chargers at Steelers as this week’s Game of the Week.
