Steelers Open Season With Win Over Browns

Expectations are very high for the Pittsburgh Steelers coming into the 2017 NFL season.  The journey for a seventh Super Bowl title would begin on the road against the division rival Cleveland Browns.  Most would have expected Pittsburgh to win this game easily, but teams are usually still finding themselves early in the year and anything can happen when AFC North teams play each other.

The Steelers would force a quick three and out and then jump on the scoreboard when Anthony Chickillo recovered a blocked punt in the end zone.  Cleveland would tie the game with :22 left in the first quarter on a DeShone Kizer 1yd TD run.  The game would remain tied until :45 remaining in the half.  That is when Ben Roethlisberger would throw his first of two touchdown passes to Jesse James.

Steelers Dominate Chiefs In Primetime

Head Coach Mike Tomlin called tonights game “Redemption Sunday”.  The Pittsburgh Steelers were coming off their worst defeat since 1989, and doubt about Super Bowl asperations had crept into the heads of media and fans.  Pittsburgh put those doubts to rest, for at least one week, with a 43-14 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field.

The offense stole the show early by putting up twenty-two points in the first quarter.  Ben Roethlisberger had a hand in all three of these touchdowns and ended up with five touchdown passes on the night for 300 yards.  His first pass was for 31 yards to Darrius Heyward-Bey, the second would be a 4 yard pass across the middle to Antonio Brown.  The final score of the quarter came when Brown caught a 38 yard pass and took it to the house.
