The Pittsburgh Steelers came from behind against the San Diego Chargers to win on a last second Jeff Reed field goal that brought final score to 11-10. 11 to 10, however does not even begin to suggest the topsy turvy nature of the game.
Likewise, it would be exaggerating to say that the one point difference makes it look closer than it was -- this one was in doubt till the end -- it does obscure the fact that the Steelers dominated in several staistical categories.
This victory snapps a two game home losing streak for the Steelers, and gives them a one game lead in the AFC North race, as the Baltimore Ravens were shot down by the New York Giants today.
Perhaps more importantly, the game marked a return to health by Willie Parker, a return to form by Ben Roethlisberger, another well-called game by Bruce Arians, and another inspiring performance by James Harrison and the rest of the defense....
The game ended at 10:30 pm in my part of the world. Please check back with Steel Curtain Rising tomorrow for comprehensive commentary.
Polling Suspended (Again)
Bloggers polling plugin officially SUCKS. For weeks now I've watch as vote tallies on Steelers free agency, draft needs, and the draft itself go up... and then down.
Thanks to all of those who voted, but I'm taking the poll on Jarvis Jones down because there are 80% fewer votes now than yesterday afternoon....
