Pittsburgh is leading Cleveland right now, 7-3, but Rothelisberger was just injured and went back to the locker room...

Rothelisberger returned--I wonder how that ankle is going to feel tomorrow...Steelers win, 14-3.

A fumble by Hines Ward in the red zone. A fumble by Heath Miller in the red zone. A drop on third down by Antonio Brown that would have put the Steelers in long FG range. A failure to punch the ball into the end zone on four tries from two yards out. Just in case anybody was wondering why this game wasn't a blowout.

Couldn't watch the game, those are the things that give coaches nightmares and grey hair! Drops and not scoring in the red zone, geesh! Glad the Steelers won!

Colt McCoy is a horrible QB. He made some awful passes out there. If he didn't throw that interception in the endzone, they actually might have had a chance. And what's funny is Seneca Wallace was in for two plays and seemed my in sync with the offense than McCoy.

I was a little surprised about McCoy--this was the first time I had seen him play extensively, and I was surprised how many times he simply missed receivers...granted, the Steeler pass rush may have a little something to do with that, but I was still surprised that when he had time, sometimes he would still throw a horrible ball...

I would say McCoy's play is a sum of a few things like lack of big talent at WR, a new conversative playcalling system, and a new head coach when he seemed to make progess under Mangini. Plus some injuries on O-line and Peyton Hillis' implosion and no depth at RB aint helping much either.

Packers should not have many problems with the inconsistent Raiders at Lambeau. Rodgers is closing in on several QB records. The Giants v Cowboys game will likely be a key factor in the NFC playoff picture.
