I didn’t even know that was possible. The Steelers had a third-and-seven play from their 26 during the third quarter when backup quarterback Byron Leftwich had the ball knocked out of his hand. Linebacker Justin Houston recovered the ball and ran it into the end zone for a touchdown. The real fun happened when Houston began swaying back and forth in a celebration.

Fantasy SPIN on Steelers’ Backfield…

Rashard Mendenhall may finally be ready to return. He's the big name with the largest paycheck and most proven history so it stands to reason he'll get a chance to reclaim the starting gig in light of the other rushers struggling.

Can it get any worse?

  Last night the Kansas City Chiefs lost in overtime 16-13 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Since the Chiefs did not lose by double digits and forced overtime with a superior team and organization, this should have been a positive story of sorts.  But all anyone is talking about is how the Chief’s danced and celebrated better than they play.  Whether it was Justin Houston and...
