…and what a weekend of football from a cat falling from the upper deck at a college football game saved by an American flag to what some are calling a waterfall of “poo” falling onto the seats from the upper deck of an NFL game in Washington. All the while in Buffalo, the Bills must have been reading all the Super bowl hype that they’ve been receiving before their game with Pittsburgh even started. Once it did Buffalo couldn’t even take advantage of a Steelers special teams blunder right from the kickoff. I could hear the yinzer’s calling for the Special Teams coach to be fired. The Bills took the opening kick off 75 yards but had to settle for 3 points thanks to a Steelers defense that was just relentless and thankfully so because the Steelers offense was putrid until the second half when they woke up and scored 13 unanswered points, 7 of those came thanks to Pittsburgh’s special teams who made up for their opening kickoff blunder and did Buffalo one better when their blocked punt resulted in a touchdown. The Steelers offense came up with big plays from Diontae Johnson who instead of dropping the ball tipped one to himself for a touchdown. Chase Claypool making highlight film catches while Ju Ju Smith Shuester, Eric Ebron and Pat Freiermuth showed Big Ben can still throw down field. Even Najee Harris broke a few runs but the Steelers offensive line is still a work in progress. Overall, the key was the Steeler’s defense being so relentless. So much so that the only thing slowing it down was holding calls on Buffalo, Their probably still being flagged for them. Nice to see TJ Watt’s new contract paying dividends after just one game with a strip sack fumble. Game two is next Sunday at Heinz field with a 1:00 kickoff against the Raiders who after pillaging Oakland twice and LA once are ransacking Vegas. Yes, the legend of Al Davis lives on.
