Steelers Recap

The Steelers game was another implosion, demonstrating the debacle we saw in Philly was not a one-time occurrence. There are real problems with this team and now with Ben gone for at least two weeks, the future for the Steelers is hazy at best.

Game of the Week: Vikings at Eagles

Two powerhouse defenses is sure to be a fun watch and Philly could very well pull the upset. I’m taking Minnesota but the Eagles have the tools to surprise.

Fourth player in Super Bowl era to have 300 yards receiving in a game.

2. QB Ben Roethlisberger 22/27 for 300 yards, 5 TDs, 152.5 passer rating vs. KC

2. Quarterbacks knocked out: Newton, Palmer, Siemian

  1. San Diego drops another one. Chargers have led in final two minutes in all three of their losses.

Steelers Recap

It was a week after one of the worst games in Steelers history. The Steelers responded as we expected, or had all the right in the world to expect. Defiantly and confidently. Roethlisberger had one of the best games of his career against a team that had just picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick six times, one of the few teams to ever accomplish that feat. The defense held the Chiefs to 14 points. Cam Heyward had three sacks. The Steelers were back and showed their game in Philly was just that. One game, a memory soon to be lost in the deeper recesses of the team’s minds. Up against the struggling Jets next week, it’s impossible for me not to take Pittsburgh.

Game of the Week: Falcons @ Broncos

The best offense against one of the best defenses. If Siemian starts, I have to give the edge to Denver. If Lynch starts, it gets a whole lot closer. Either way, I’m taking Denver but not confidently. I think this game could go either way.

Tim Sports Report for 2015 NFL Week 5

Top 5

2. QB Andy Dalton 30/44 for 331 yards, 2 TDs, INT, 95.9 passer rating, 7 rushes for 18 yards, TD vs. SEA

3. RB Thomas Rawls 23 for 169 yards, TD vs. CIN

4. RB Doug Martin 24 carries for 123 yards, 2 TDs, 3 receptions for 35 yards, TD vs. JAC

5. RB Devonta Freeman 27 carries for 153 yards, TD vs. WAS

Worst of the Worst

5. QB Matt Ryan 24/42 for 254 yards, 2 INTs, Fmb, 55.1 passer rating vs. WAS

4. QB Matt Stafford 20/32 for 188 yards, TD, 3 INTs, 50.0 passer rating vs. ARI

3. Seahawks blow 17-point 4th quarter lead vs. CIN. According to Trey Wingo, teams had lost 427 straight games when down at least 17 in the fourth quarter.

2. QB Peyton Manning 22/35 for 266 yards, 2 INTs, 62.3 passer rating vs. OAK

  1. QB Nick Foles 11/30 for 141 yards, TD, 4 INTs, 23.7 passer rating vs. GB

Steelers Recap

The Steelers vs. Chargers game showed us one thing: Le’Veon Bell is the man. Yes, it showed us that Michael Vick needs to retire, that the Steelers offense is nowhere close to the same without Ben and that the defense has been great when all’s said and done, but when you need someone to turn to, Bell should be the go-to guy. A huge win over one of the better quarterbacks in the league, although a depleted Chargers o-line helped a lot.

Game of the Week: Panthers @ Seahawks

This is the game proved which team was for real.

Tim Sports Report for 2014 NFL Week 3

Top 5

1. RB Rashad Jennings 34 carries for 176 yards, TD vs. HOU

2. WR Julio Jones 9 receptions for 161 yards, 2 TDs vs. TB

3. QB Matt Ryan 21/24 for 286 yards, 3 TDs, 155.9 QBR vs. TB

4. WR Jeremy Maclin 8 receptions for 154 yards, TD vs. WAS

5. WR Pierre Garcon 11 receptions for 138 yards, TD vs. PHI

Worst of the Worst

1. The TB/ATL game in general. Nine turnovers between the two teams. Tampa Bay gave up two defensive/special teams touchdowns, committed 11 penalties for 110 yards, went 3/13 on 3rd down and were outgained 488-217 in total yards.

2. The Oakland Raiders’ Darren McFadden scored the game-tying touchdown against the New England Patriots in the fourth quarter only to have it called back by a holding call. The next play, the Patriots intercepted the ball to secure the victory. It was the Raiders 15th-straight loss in the Eastern time zone.

4. QB Chad Henne 4/7 for 33 yards in first half vs. IND

5. QB Jake Locker 17/34 for 185 yards, 2 INTs, 41.9 QBR vs. CIN

Steelers Recap

On ESPN’s Pigskin Pick’em, the Panthers were an 83% favorite against the Steelers Sunday night. The Steelers must not have read reports as they did not beat one of the best defenses in the NFL, but dominated them for a full sixty minutes. The Steelers had 264 rushing yards, the most under Tomlin at the helm. RBs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both eclipsed 100 yards, the first time two Steelers running backs accomplished the feat since October 26, 1986. The Steelers also had more rushing yards than passing, 264 vs. 190. The last time the Steelers had more rushing yards than passing was in a game against the Buccaneers on September 26, 2010 (201 to 186). The Steelers currently lead the league in rushing (163.3 per game) after landing in the bottom five just one year ago.

The bad news is the injuries the Steelers suffered during their throttling of the Panthers. First round pick Ryan Shazier suffered a knee sprain and is set to miss a few weeks. 2013 first round pick Jarvis Jones has been placed on the injured reserve list after dislocating his wrist, meaning Jones will not be available to play for at least eight weeks. To round up an already painful injury list, starting cornerback Ike Taylor broke his right forearm, meaning the 13-year veteran is most likely done for the season. Sean Spence is set to fill in for Shazier and Arthur Moats will slide into Jones’ spot. The Steelers coaxed James Harrison out of retirement and Harrison is expected to fill in as a backup. If there are any positives to take out of the situation, it’s that the Steelers looked superb against a stacked defense last week and that if there was a time for the Steelers to suffer injuries, it would be now. The Steelers’ next four games are their easiest workload of the year, facing Tampa Bay at home and then traveling on the road to Jacksonville and Cleveland before returning to Heinz Field to face the Texans. With all that said, the Buccaneers looked egregious on Thursday night against the Falcons and while the extra few days to get the team back on track should help, I’m confident the Steelers will keep pace in the division and go to 3-1.

Game of the Week: NO @ DAL

Philadelphia @ San Francisco is a close second, but I got to give the edge to this Sunday night match-up because these two teams have been so underachieving so far this year. The Saints have maintained a sixth-place rushing attack, which is impressive considering their backs and while the Saints have a top-five aerial attack, Brees has not been the dynamic player we are used to seeing. Rob Ryan’s defense has also flip-flopped performance-wise (29th against the pass in a pass-heavy division). The Saints lost to Cleveland. That sums up their season so far. On the other side, Dallas is just as bad if not worse. The defense is set to make another record for most yards allowed and Romo is lucky to have the league’s leading rusher right now in DeMarco Murray because he’s looked like an amateur. I’ll take the Saints even though they’re on the road.

4. Jets commit 11 penalties for 105 yards, 2 turnovers and 1/4 in the red zone vs. OAK

5. Raiders held to minute 158 total yards vs. NYJ

Steelers Recap

The Steelers had a stellar first half and more than exceeded my expectations for week one…until the second half started. From that point onward, the Steelers reminded all of its fans why they started 0-4 last year. Undisciplined play, atrocious pass coverage and total negligence on the run defense, they were all present. The Steelers may have won the game, but the fact remains they played a little over half the game, not a full 60 minutes, something that coach Tomlin has had to constantly remind his players to do. In Baltimore tomorrow, Ravens win.

Game of the Week: PHI @ IND

The Eagles were dreadful in the first half of their game against the Jaguars. The Colts, on the other hand, showed some resolve and determination, almost completing a comeback against the Denver Broncos. The Colts look hot and the Eagles, not. Luck leads his team to victory.

Steelers Recap

I was disinterested in this past week’s Steelers game and the biggest reason for that is because the Steelers were being outplayed the whole game. Despite the score being tied at 24 at one point, there had been so many defensive miscues for the Steelers that I truly didn’t understand how they were still in the game. The Patriots were the more dominant team the whole game even though they needed the fourth quarter to pull away. The Patriots were 5/8 in the red zone. The fact that they were in the red zone eight times in one game is embarrassing. Roethlisberger threw for four touchdowns and 400 yards, but had two interceptions and a fumble. The offense overall was prevalent but Dick LeBeau’s defense was atrocious.  I wasn’t surprised the Steelers lost but I was a little surprised the Steelers allowed franchise records in points and yardage, despite facing a Patriots team that is not as good as it was in past years. Tom Brady has struggled without his go-to receivers this year but has still been able to lead his team to victories. You would have thought that with Brady throwing to the likes of Aaron Dobson and an injury-prone Amendola and Gronk they would have struggled at least a little bit, but it looked like Brady had been throwing to these guys for the last ten years. Despite how bad the Steelers played, I’m going to pick them against the Bills this Sunday. The game is at home and I think that E.J. Manuel will struggle in his first game back since October 3. They will be battling one of the best running back duos in the league in Spiller and Jackson, but I believe if the offense can be half as prevalent as it was last week, they will be able to pull out the victory.

Game of the Week: Cowboys @ Saints

Very rarely do I believe the Sunday night game is actually the game of the week, but the Cowboys and Saints match-up will be one to watch.

5. QB Tom Brady 13/22 for 116 yards, TD, INT, 69.5 QBR vs. MIA

Steelers Recap

The Steelers fell to the Raiders this past Sunday. In the loss they had only 35 yards rushing, while allowing 197 yards rushing for Oakland, Terrelle Pryor’s 93 yard touchdown is the longest touchdown run by a quarterback in NFL history, only adding to the horrible performance. Pittsburgh was 4/15 on third down, and 2/4 in the red zone. Suisham missed two 30 yard field goals, either of which would have tied the game for the Steelers. The Steelers defense played well overall. They had three takeaways, including intercepting Pryor twice. The Raiders had nearly no offense in the 2nd half, gaining only one first down and 35 yards of offense. Ben was forced to throw 45 times, and the lack of a running game definitely hurt. The Steelers did a great job of running the ball against the Ravens but they didn’t give Bell the ball enough to make the offense balanced. This team has got to RUN THE BALL! It doesn’t even have to be that successful, but they have to run the ball and make opposing defenses respect that or they will continue to heavily blitz Ben or drop 8 in coverage. It was one of the worst Steelers game I’ve seen in a while, maybe even worse than last year’s Raiders game. I expect the Steelers to get destroyed in New England.

Game of the Week: Bengals @ Dolphins

The Bengals have looked really good the last two games and the Dolphins are on a losing streak. I took the Bengals, but Dalton struggled and the Phins got the win. I don’t expect to see any better games the rest of the week.
