One of a handful of potentially winnable games.  But the Bills D is IMO a top-10 squad this year, which does not bode well for Ben given the carousel of OL injuries and pass pro issues, and the Bills have been competitive even with guys like Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel at the helm.  Good news:  we face a rookie QB this week.  Bad news:  he's better than those other guys, by a lot.  38-35 Steelers, after falling behind 10-0 - Ben finally seals the deal on a comeback.  Yay.

I believe Bills get Spiller back this week too.

Everything screaming take Bills plus points which means Steelers (-3) is mortal lock.  I'm betting penso's prized book collection on it.

I know we're going to be saying this every week for the rest of the season...  but this game is a MUST LOSE.

There's only two ways that's gonna happen:
(1) Ben gets injured and can't finish the game (read: Rodgers); or
(2) Landry starts.

Dunno.  We can find a way to lose, have faith...

Ike and Vince Williams didn't practice Wednesday due to concussions.  If they're out, who covers Johnson?  Who plays ILB?  Could be areas to exploit (even more).  Add in the typical assery from STs and the offense, and this is a very losable game.

So, how bad was the INT?  As bad as that last punt by McBriar?

Listening online, sounds like they're able to pound the ball.  I love that.

Giants are winning, Vikes already won so winning this game won't hurt the Steelers. 

Top 5 pick!  Top 5 pick!  Top 5 pick!

Looked a lot like I had hoped for several weeks ago.  Nothing really spectacular until Brown got rolling.  Sacks as usual an issue.  Got good Dwyer today, several key runs.  Bell OK at times, but average wasn't good.

If we could play rookie QBs every week, we'd be on to something.  Even in this year of the great suck we've won two against rookies.

ATlanta lost, so they're 2-7; NYG and Raiders are all tied with Pitt at 3-6.  Jax won?  JAX WON???

Don't know about top 5, but top 10 for sure.

Didn't get to see the game but I saw the stats at half. Steelers were dominating, and apparently decided to stay in the locker room after the 1st half? They have something in the neighborhood of 75 yards in 2nd.

Made the trip to this game. First Steelers home game. Kept wondering if the screaming/cursing guy in 507 was Y2J.

If he was screaming like a schoolgirl, then yes.
