Winning sure is fun, even if the Steelers didn’t make it as easy on themselves as they should have. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New York Giants to the tune of 24-14 and had it not been for a plethora of penalties and inopportune times, the Steelers victory could have been more decisive.
- But as Mike Tomlin is probably reminding us now as I write this, “They don’t add style points.”
As we do after every Steelers win, we invite citizens of Steelers Nation to vote game ball winners. Here are the candidates who’ve made it to the ballot:
On offense, Ben Roethlisberger earns a ballot slot due to his strong performance. Ladarius Green had what might be a breakout game, including his critical touchdown late in the game. Le’Veon Bell didn’t always have room to run, but showed why he is the most complete running back in the league. Antonio Brown’s yardage totals might have been down, but he came down with the ball in the end zone, and made another critical catch late in the game.
- Remember, you are not limited to these choices. If you think that Jesse James deserves a game ball, please by all means write in his name. Better yet, write in his name in leave a comment pleading your case.
On defense, Sean Davis leads the balloting. Even before his interception, Sean Davis had a strong game, coming up to make a number of critical stops.
- One good candidate for a write in would be Artie Burns, who lead the team in tackles, and had a key pass defense in the end zone.
