So every Steelers fans are celebrating a victory Tuesday after a wild Monday night finish. We’ll get to the controversial taunting call in a bit. But first, let’s focus on the good in front of the legendary tight end Heath Miller.
Pat Freiermuth became the first rookie tight end to score two touchdowns in a game since Heath. Mike Tomlin reached went number 150 last night and Ben Roethlisberger tied Tom Brady with his 50th game winning drive against Chicago Bears.
Let’s talk about the real MVP for a second Chris Boswell. The kicker went into concussion protocol after the Cleveland game, just a week after a major hit, Boswell kicked to 50 plus yard field goals, recovered a fumble on his own kick off and kicked the game winning field goal on a 40 yard attempt.
Boswell did all of that in the fourth quarter. He didn’t miss an extra point in the third, but he definitely redeemed himself with a 29 to 27 win over the Bears. But with the good comes the bad, and here is what the nation is raving
Bears linebacker Cassius Marsh sacked Ben Roethlisberger on a third and eighth play in the fourth quarter after the play in was given a 15 yard penalty for taunting, giving Pittsburgh an automatic first down.
Now, Tomlin is a part of the NFL’s competition committee.
“All season long, he has stated his support for cracking down on taunting. Here is what he had to say in response to last night’s call. We’re just trying to clean our game up. We embrace the responsibility that comes with being role models that we are this game being played at the highest level.”
“We understand that people that play at a lower level watch us and and often mimic the things that we do and how we conduct ourselves. And just largely as a league competition committee specifically, there was a desire to improve in that area.”
“And so that’s been expressed to our guys. We’ve we’ve been shown examples of that throughout team development, and we continue to reinforce that as examples in a negative way, turn up during the course of the journey for us and for others.”
Up next, the Steelers will host the 0 and 8 Detroit Lions for a 1:00 p.m. kick off this Sunday, The Steelers are now second place in the AFC North
