    I disagree. A turnover down there gives them the ball in the red zone. You have to be smart and knock that down.

    Maybe there's a clause in his contract that he gets a bonus for every INT?

    No because there was a receiver right there!!!! What if he bats the ball into the receiverís hands? I was fine with that interception. Iíve seen to many things go wrong when people over think something.

    The field position doesnít matter at that point in the game. No matter where the ball lands, the Steelers need to run the clock and get one first down. They donít need points so the red zone is insignificant there. Ball landing in Nelsonís arms ensures a turnover in possession opposes tomthe ball maybe being caught by the receiver by accident...see Stefan Diggs for example.

    I still disagree. Easy knock down of that pass. No way the receiver catches that.

    If we turn the ball over at their end after the interception, they're immediately in the red zone.

    Again, the turn the ball over at any spot on the field the game is in jeopardy...but the lead was 9...so again, itís not really that relevant with the timing.

    If thatís the big critique on the game, people are nitpicking...

    I don't really care, I'm just saying that the better play would have been to knock it down. I don't think it's debatable.
