Its that time again Steelers Nation. The Pittsburgh Steelers limped into Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium following their humiliating defeat at Heinz Field at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars and emerged with a hard-fought 19-13 win over the Chiefs.
As we do after every Steelers win, we give you citizens of Steelers Nation a chance to vote Steelers game ball winners.
While Ben Roethlisberger certainly didn’t play his best game vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, he did look far better than he had the week before. But Ben Roethlisberger’s best move was perhaps to hand the ball to Le’Veon Bell, who looked like his old self in rushing for 179 yards on 32 carries. Big Ben’s next move was to throw the ball to Antonio Brown, who looked simply spectacular in torching the Chief’s defense for 8 catches for 155 yards which included an electrifying 51 yard touchdown.
- Tight end Vance McDonald also gets a nod. He only had one catch, but it was an important one that got the Steelers out of their own goal line.
Those four men earn ballot positions for the offense, but remember, you can write in James Conners, Terrell Watson, Martavis Bryant or any other offensive player you wish.
On the defensive side of the ball, Sean Davis earns a ballot slot for leading the team in tackles and defensing a pass in the end zone. Vince Williams also gets a nod, thank to his smart two sack performance prior to leaving the game with an injury. James Harrison also gets a nod, thanks to his critical sack on third down during the Chief’s final drive.
- Remember, you’re not limited to these choices.
Think that Ryan Shazier, Stephon Tuitt or Cameron Heyward deserve a game ball? No problem, write their names in. Better yet, leave a comment stating your case.
