Back on Track; Steelers Back to Ground and Pound, Top Chiefs in KC 19-13

3. Better to Be Lucky Than Good

That was never more the case than in the 4th quarter when the Steelers were holding onto a slim lead, when on a third-and-2 Ben Roethlisberer threw a pass towards Antonio Brown, who had the ball hit off Chiefs CB Phillip Gaines’ helmet, into Brown’s hands, and shaking a tackle he went 51 yards for a score to make it 19-10 with 3:24 left.

Ben to Brown is a combo that will go down as legendary in Steelers history, but this play was all about luck and focus, and Brown made it happen after the throw by Ben to give the Steelers the 9-point lead.

The Chiefs were able to get a field goal to make it a six-point game and we all saw what happened at the end, but if Brown didn’t make the huge play after the throw by Ben, none of that would have mattered.

    One comment on the Ian Rappaport of NFL Network , reporting that Martavis Bryant has requested a trade . If this is true , this guy is so delusional its beyond comprehension . He is literally one failed drug test from being out of the league PERMANENTLY and the Steelers took you back with open arms and you have the audacity to ask for a trade because you dont like how youre being used ? Really ? I said at the time of the suspension , this guy just doesnt get it . Hes clueless . You have the potential to be one of the best receivers in football but you have the mentality of a four year old . If Im the Steelers , I tell him , trade denied . Youre a Steeler and bottom line you will honor your contract . Get used to it .
