At least one Baltimore Ravens player isn’t too enthused about the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17 getting flexed to Sunday Night Football, while a new mock draft has the Steelers picking a tackle at No. 16.
🏈 On the Steelers’ game-winning drive on Saturday night, Kenny Pickett threw for 75+ yards, had a fourth-down rush for a first down and threw a touchdown pass. No other NFL quarterback in the last 30 years (rookie or not) has done all of that on a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime.
🏈 Terry Bradshaw delivered a fantastic tribute to Franco Harris prior to Saturday’s Steelers-Raiders game on the NFL Network.
🏈 Steelers fans were livid about the NFL Network’s decision to cut the video montage of Franco Harris’ No. 32 jersey retirement ceremony at halftime.
🏈 Chris Wormley finds it to be a joke that Cam Heyward and Alex Highsmith didn’t make the Pro Bowl.
🏈 Former Steelers offensive lineman Trai Essex raved about Cam Heyward’s standout performance on Saturday night. “I just want to point out how great that dude @CamHeyward was last night,” Essex tweeted. “Year 12. Kickin ass like it’s Year 2! Treasure that dude #SteelersNation…He’s one of one.” Heyward recorded seven tackles, including three for a loss, two sacks, and a pass batted at the line of scrimmage in the Steelers’ 13-10 win over the Raiders.
🏈 Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen questioned the NFL’s decision to flex the Steelers-Ravens game on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 8:20 p.m. “Why flex that..,” Queen tweeted. The Steelers could possibly be eliminated from playoff contention prior to Sunday night’s game, while the Ravens have already clinched a playoff berth.
🏈 Steelers legend Jerome Bettis thanked everyone who supported his foundation’s toy drive during the holiday season.
🏈 Listen to the Steelers Spanish-language radio broadcast call of the game-winning touchdown from Kenny Pickett to George Pickens.
