The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Green Bay Packers, 37-36, Sunday. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin's decision to go for an onside kick late in the fourth quarter with a two-point lead could have been the storyline of the game if Pittsburgh had lost.
So in this week's version of "Thought of the Day," we ask our AFC North community this: Was Tomlin's decision the right call? Was Tomlin right to protect his defense, which has blown fourth-quarter leads all season? Pittsburgh's defense entered Sunday ranked No. 4 despite its fourth-quarter struggles. Did Tomlin send the wrong message to his unit?
