As drama goes, the Steelers-Lions game ball poll offered very little. The story of the game revolved around one wide receiver who spent the evening streching the field, and a Steelers defense who effectively shrunk the field in the Red Zone.
The young wide receiver is of course the Steelers JuJu Smith-Schuster and the Steelers goal line defense.
JuJu Smith-Schuster was the top vote getter by a whopping 23 votes, but he was course the Steelers goal line defense, anchored by Cameron Heyward, Tyson Alualu and Javon Hargrave.
- Javon Hargrave led the individual voting with 4 votes, while Vince Williams followed with 3 with another 3 for Tyson AluAlu and Cam Heyward.
Sean Davis got two votes, while Ryan Shazier polled one rounding out the defensive vote getters as Artie Burns was left shut out.
On the offensive side Ben Roethlisberger got 2 votes, the only player to draw multiple clicks.
Le’Veon Bell was shut out, which is a little surprising since he scored the team’s first touchdown and helped burn up the clock when the game’s outcome remained in doubt.
However, Bell did have a fumble, which cost the team dearly as it took 3 points off the board and gave the Lions a chance to add 3 more.
- Antonio Brown and and Jesse James rounded out the voting, with both getting a vote a piece.
Thanks again to everyone who took time out to vote, and a special thanks to those who submitted write ins.
