🏈 Former Steelers quarterback and Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw received some backlash for kissing celebrity chef Antonia Lofaso on the cheek on air during the Fox pregame show prior to the Packers-Lions game. Lofaso cleared the air on X and said that it was an innocent gesture by Bradshaw and took no offense. 

“Putting all the rumors to rest… Terry Bradshaw is one of the sweetest ppl and this was an innocent gesture of enjoying my dish! Happy Thanksgiving!” Lofaso wrote.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback DaRon Bland made NFL history on Thanksgiving by recording his fifth pick-six of the season in Dallas’ 45-10 win over the Washington Commanders. No one has ever had that many pick-sixes in a single season. Many think Bland is a lock for NFL Defensive Player of the Year because of the accomplishment. Former Steelers cornerback Rod Woodson has the most career pick-sixes in NFL history with 12. Bland already has five in 11 games this year.

Steelers rookie cornerback Joey Porter Jr. has 21.6 coverage snaps per reception allowed this season, which ranks second-best among cornerbacks this season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Kyle Brandt of the NFL Network talked with Steelers running back Jaylen Warren about running guys over and being a Steeler. Warren got the Angry Run scepter from Brandt for his Week 11 performance against the Cleveland Browns.

 

Kyle Brandt is most confident in the Steelers right now in the AFC Wild Card race.

“I see that logo, I’ve said this many times, that’s the American flag as far as the NFL is concerned. Always trust this brand,” Brandt said about the Steelers.

🏈 Steelers Community Relations: Several Steelers players gave back to the Pittsburgh community during the Thanksgiving holiday season.
