I knew this would be the week the Pittsburgh Steelers would take down Eli Manning and the world Champion New York Giants, the Steelers are just playing too good of football to not win the game. Ben Roethlisberger’s confidence has never looked higher than what I have seen over the past few games the Steelers have played. Roethlisberger may not have liked the new offensive scheme when the season started, however it is clear he is now finding his comfort level. The Steelers were able to come from behind to show the world they mean business. The Ravens won today to remain one game in front of the Steelers in the AFC North, but remember they haven’ face the Pittsburgh Steelers yet and I think it will be the Steelers who take the AFC North this season.
Roethlisberger threw for only 216 yards today, not his best game but he did his job completing 21 of the 30 passes he threw for 2 touchdowns and one interception. Big Ben got the Steelers down the field and into the end-zone when he had to today. The Steelers gained another 158 yards rushing against the tough Giants front four. Pittsburgh really did a great job throughout the entire second half of the game. Their offense and their defense were able to compliment each other today and come away from the Hurricane rattled east coast with a little wind of their own blowing. This time it was the wind of the Pittsburgh Steelers being able to blow their own horn after taking down the Giants.
The Steelers now move to 5-3 on the season and they showed the world even though they got off to a rough start, you can’t count them out. The Steelers face the Kansas City Chiefs in their next game and believe me when I tell you this, the Chiefs aren’t even in the same atmosphere as the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then it is the Baltimore Ravens the Browns then the Ravens again. The Steelers can take control of the AFC North within the next few weeks. I fully expect the Pittsburgh Steelers to be sitting in the top spot in the AFC North by December 2nd.
Ben Roehtlisberger is playing way to well for the Steelers not to be there by then. The Baltimore games could be a battle, but I just think the Steelers are going to take control of the division and the Ravens are going to have very little to say about it.
