Steelers grind it out; Lady Cards vs. Lady Huskies;
Classic AFC North battle right here and a classic offensive game by the Steelers. Steelers used 206 rushing yards to defeat the Titans, 204 coming from Le'Veon Bell. Bell worked for every bit of that 204 because 147 yards came in-between the tackles and 82 came after the 1st contact. This was a career game for Bell, posting career highs in carries (33) and yards. He has been splitting time this season with LaGarrette Blount but he worked as a 1-headed monster Monday Night.
This was actually a good game. The Titans had a 24-13 lead going into the 4th quarter. Zach Mettenberger and the Titans offense kept applying the pressure to the Steelers, up until the 4th quarter. One could say that Mettenberger had a better game statistically than Big Ben but he didn't win the game. Big Ben and Antonio Brown connected for 9 competitions and 91 yards, plus the go-ahead TD.
Chad was once the best route runner in the league, so his opinion when it comes to that hold weights. In case you don't know, Chad is speaking about Antonio Brown. Brown is currently 2nd in receiving yards (1,070) with 8 TDs, earning the claim as one of the best WRs in the game today. He has the play-maker ability, great hands, speed to open up a defense, and the best route running in the game. The only knock against him is his size, standing at 5'10 and weighing 186lbs, but still no one can stop him.
The Lady Cardinals managed to end the Lady Huskies 45-game win streak by defeating them on the home court. Both of these teams have face one another 9 times since 2009, UConn dominating the series, 7-2. Senior guard, Amber Orrange, dropped 17 points with 5 boards and 4 dimes. This was great win the Lady Cards, who always seem to fall to the Huskies. Yes this is only the 2nd game of a long season but this was a great win for team morale. Is this a statement game? Yes. Are they the best team in the country? We'll have to wait and see
