    Tonight the Steelers become the first team in NFL history to have a 250-yard passer and a 100-yard rusher in 5 straight games.

    Ok who thought it was going to be a long night when they came out and basically walked down the field to make it 7-0?

    I thought so, especially since we had trouble stopping McCaffery. Fortunately we got a big enough lead to take him out of the game. That dude is dangerous

    You were in good company with a lot of folks about the Panthers. Carolina was being talked up as potential dark horse NFC champ contender that could catch the Saints in the NFC South after beating up on a troubled Ravens team and a bad Tampa team at home.

    Now they will only be one game ahead of the Falcons if Atlanta beats Cleveland and in a fight to get a wildcard.

    Of course if the Steelers had lost at home to a good team last night (after the Panthers scored on their opening drive I saw another Chiefs/Ravens slow start at home coming) our collective mood would be a lot more downbeat too.

    They still can be imo. Thursday night games are a big disadvantage for the visiting team, so I don't think the Panthers are as bad as they looked

    Possible explanation for Reid being so aggressive when going after Ben - if the worst that can happen is a 15 yard penalty why not try to knock the QB out of the game?

    As was the case with the Steelers not falling on a free kick the Browns recovered several weeks ago, the extent of NFL players not knowing the rules that apply to their jobs is surprising

    This is overstated. I looked up the TNF records yesterday and the visiting team wins quite often.

    But I think what can happen is both teams go into the game tired and if you get behind by a lot early that team can say screw it I'm out until next week and a loss snowballs into a blowout

    The past 6 Thursday night games have not been close. That may have a lot to do with some really bad teams being on the schedule but bad teams are capable of playing close games in the 2018 basketball on turf version of the NFL

    Patriots 38, Colts 24
    Eagles 34, Giants 13
    Broncos 45, Cardinals 10
    Texans 42, Dolphins 23
    49ers 34, Raiders 3
    Steelers 52, Panthers 21

    Remember when Donovan McNabb did not know in 2008 that tie games in the nfl existed even if McNabb was in the NFL when the falcons/steelers had a tie game in 2002.

    Also, the Eagles had played against the Falcons in the playoffs in 2002, so we can not say that McNabb had looked at the record of his opponent!

    Itís Danny Smithís job to make sure everyone is informed and knows situational football. Itís more his fault than anyoneís.

    They're definitely not as bad as they appeared last night, but we exposed the key to beating them: Hit Cam Newton. Unless you're absolutely certain that someone else has the ball, just pop Cam. They'll make a drive or two, sure... but it ends all that "trickeration" nonsense, which is the foundation of their entire offense. If they don't want Cam leaving on a stretcher, then he'll have to stand behind his line and beat us with his arm, and that's when they lose. Cam Newton is not a good pocket passer and his line isn't good in pass protection.
    If only it was that easy to shut down the west coast offense
