Steelers Daily Links: Spygate Revisited, Herbert Hurt in Loss

Published

The Kansas City Chiefs regained primacy over the AFC West and maybe the entire conference with a 27-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers at a raucous Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday night, but the loss might be the least of the worries for LA fans.

🏈 Steelers Star quarterback Justin Herbert took a huge hit late in the game and was frequently holding his ribs, leading to speculation that he may have suffered a serious injury. Herbert stayed in the game even though LA was down two scores, leading the Chargers to a meaningless late touchdown — that is, unless you bet on the game. The Chargers covered thanks to his touchdown pass with 1:11 to play.

🏈 Steelers South Fayette alum Justin Watson caught a 41-yard touchdown pass early in the game as part of the Chiefs comeback effort. LA led 17-7 before Kansas City scored 20 straight points.

🏈 Steelers Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart said on 93.7 The Fan that Spygate wasn’t why the Steelers lost to the Patriots in the 2001 AFC Championship game, but it definitely was a factor. “I’m not making excuses for why we lost,” Stewart said. “(But) when I made a check or whatever we did, they knew exactly where to go. It was unbelievable.” The Steelers play the Patriots this Sunday.
🏈 Steelers According to Pro Football Focus, Cam Sutton had a 91.4 grade while lined up in the slot against the Bengals on Sunday, which was the best among all slot defensive backs in Week 1.
🏈 Steelers Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has a lot of respect for his former college teammate Minkah Fitzpatrick. ” I think Minkah, he was like the epitome of just a great football player and person. I looked up to him a lot at Alabama,” Jones said. “You’ve just got to know where he’s at. He’s a great player.”
🏈 Steelers Najee Harris will be on Celebrity Family Feud on Sunday, September 18 at 8 p.m. ET.
🏈 Steelers Harris’ Da’ Bigger Picture Foundation is teaming up with the Red Meat Lover’s Club for a charity event at Sullivan’s Steakhouse in downtown Pittsburgh on Friday, September 30. The event will run from 7-10 p.m. and Sullivan’s will provide a curated open bar for everyone to enjoy. All profits from the auctions by the Red Meat Lover’s Club will be donated to Harris’ foundation. Harris has selected the Homeless Children’s Education Fund to be the recipient of the funds. Tickets can be purchased at dabiggerpicture.org
🏈 Steelers The Steelers unveiled the new Acrisure Stadium signs to replace the old Heinz Field logo.
🏈 Steelers Mike Tomlin views Jonathan Jones as a “lockdown corner” in the mold of past Patriots cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore and J.C. Jackson.
🏈 Steelers Cam Heyward said on his Not Just Football podcast that Le’Veon Bell boxes just like he plays football. Bell knocked out Adrian Peterson in the fifth round of their fight on the Social Gloves 2 card at Banc of California Center in Los Angeles this past Saturday night. “Le’Veon lulls you to sleep, lulls you to sleep, and then boom, pow!” Heyward said. “It was a sight to see. You usually don’t see AP going down like that. You saw his eyes go up to his head and you go, ‘Le’Veon got him on that one.'”
