On Tuesday, veteran running back Ben Tate was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as a proactive insurance policy should team MVP Le’Veon Bell not be ready against Ravens.
With the Ravens in the middle of game preparations for their Wild Card game against the Steelers, the last thing Baltimore needed was off the field distractions. But that’s exactly what they’ll get with the news surfacing about their head of security.
The Pittsburgh Steelers finalized their regular season with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals to host the Baltimore Ravens during wild card week of the 2014 NFL Playoffs.
The easy part may have been getting to the playoffs in the first place when considering who Baltimore must play next. Their biggest rivals in Pittsburgh will be their first test as they look to advance in the postseason for the 6th time in 7 seasons.
The NFC and AFC North titles will be fought for by iconic franchises, in sacred arenas; just 60 minutes of mayhem in old, cold NFL towns.
Meanwhile, the Bengals (9-4-1) host the Broncos (11-3) on Monday night. Denver already owns a playoff spot, but trails New England for the AFC’s top slot.
We’ll find out once and for all how Johnny Football translates as an NFL quarterback, but I’ll tell you one thing: he can’t be any worse than Brian Hoyer!
Six more games. That’s what Rex Ryan has left before his fate with the Jets is decided. Thumbs up on another season? Or thumbs down to end an era?
Rex Ryan wasn’t pleased when a Pittsburgh player tried to break up New York’s victory formation on Sunday.
My disdain for Fan Guy is renowned. But now it seems Fan Guy and Jets Fan are more closely related than I ever even pondered, two twigs on one branch from the same family tree.
Some fans of the Jets are being heard in big, bold letters. Only the timing isn’t exactly ideal.
Blame it on Justin Bieber. At least that’s what a lot of Steelers fans on Twitter were doing during Sunday’s loss to the Jets after the pop star visited his favorite team.
The bravado was back, even if just for one happy postgame press conference. “For people that count this football team out, you do so at your own risk, at your own peril,” Ryan Ryan said Sunday.
Just when the Jets didn’t think things could get worse, Ben Roethlisberger, coming off two straight games with six touchdown passes, is coming to town with top target Antonio Brown.
While I abhor Fan Guy, we have something in common. We are both wildly neurotic about our teams. The defining difference is that I see my squad through wholly cynical hues.
