Posted November 11, 2012 on AP on Fox
In a season during which very little has gone right for the Kansas City Chiefs this season, running back Jamaal Charles is the exception. A year removed from a knee injury that limited him to just two games, Charles is ninth in the NFL in rushing and perhaps the only reliable weapon the struggling Chiefs (1-7) have on offense heading into Monday night's game against surging Pittsburgh. The Steelers (5-3) have few problems at the moment, but clarity in the backfield is one of them. Pittsburgh's running game is humming and backups Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer have both rushed for over 100 yards in a game while subbing for injured starter Rashard Mendenhall. The reserves are playing so well, coach Mike Tomlin is making no promises that Mendenhall will get his job back whenever he returns from a strained right Achilles tendon.

ESPN Uses Drink And Drunk Graphic For Ben Roethlisberger Instead Of Dink And Dunk

The graphic department for ESPN certainly made an error tonight as the below graphic was used that showed ROETHLISBERGER with the words "DRINKANDDRUNK" underneath it. Obviously it was meant to say Dink And Dunk for the offense run by Ben Roethlisberger, instead of Drink And Drunk. The network quickly had it changed. ESPN will likely issue an apology of sorts at some...

Big Ben suffers ESPN graphics snafu

Well, this is one of the more unfortunate snafus we've ever featured.  Instead of a segment about Ben Roethlisberger's short passing game "Dink and Dunk", ESPN labelled it in their rundown as "Roethlisberger Drink and Drunk."  Unlucky mistake or not-so-subtle dig at Roethlisberger's checkered past?  Whatever the case, Chris Berman had to come on...
