Here is the latest Steelers' mailbag. Questions I received but didn't answer top the list for next week's mailbag. I appreciate the great questions and, as always, keep them coming.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A punter with a distinct Aussie accent completed arguably the most important pass of the game.A defensive end who hadn't played more than 10 snaps since the middle of November produced a sack and recovered a fumble that led to the late touchdown that set up a wild finish at snowy Lambeau Field.
PITTSBURGH -- Marked improvement from the New England debacle.Quarterback: Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t flashy, but he didn’t need to be in completing 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown.
PITTSBURGH -- A few observations from the Pittsburgh Steelers' 23-10 victory against the Buffalo Bills at Heinz Field:What it means: The Steelers kept their season from spiraling out of control by beating up on the Bills in a stadium that had more than a few empty seats.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Mike Tomlin was so mad after the Pittsburgh Steelers lost at Oakland -- and managed two touchdowns on the same field where the Eagles' Nick Foles threw seven scoring passes a week later -- that he fired his punter.
Not quite Bluto Blutarsky on defense but not much better either:Quarterback: Ben Roethlisberger threw for 400 yards, and he joined Terry Bradshaw as the only quarterbacks in franchise history with 200 career touchdown passes.
PHILADELPHIA -- My thoughts on the Cincinnati Bengals' 34-13 victory at the Philadelphia Eagles:What it means: Capitalizing on five Eagles turnovers, the Bengals improved to 8-6 and moved a half-game ahead of the Steelers (7-6) for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC.
