After the Jets beat the Bills, my local CBS affiliate switched to the final three minutes of the Ratbirds at the Brownstains. Balty was leading 30-27 but Cleveland had the ball with plenty of time for the go ahead score. Since Baltimore is a game ahead of Cleveland but only one game behind Pittsburgh, my rooting interests were obvious: Cleveland must win to throw both teams into a 4-4 tie behind the Steelers.
On the first snap Browns QB Bigfoot Anderson tossed a 42 yard pick 6 to Terrell Suggs effectively ending the game. Ravens lead, 37-27. The next series saw the ball go back to the Ravens on downs. Not a brilliant performance by Anderson and perhaps his last in a Brownie uniform. Brady Quim was seen licking his lips on the sideline.
Suddenly the Steelers have a must-win game on their hands in DC with the 5-3 Ravens breathing down their necks.
And it all happened on a day when Bigfoot may be seen no more, his final TD pass going to the wrong team.
