Steelers Tight End Heath Miller made 2 catches today for 23 yards as the Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns. Those two catches gave Miller 337 for his career.

He should easily pass that mark next season.

Mendenhall was injured on a 5-yard carry on the final play of the first quarter.
Isaac Redman replaced Mendenhall, who is questionable to return to the contest.
During his post game press conference Mike Tomlin was asked about Rashard Mendenhall. He deemed the injury as “not good.” It could be a possible ACL tear. The injury was non contact and the doctors are going to look at it again back in Pittsburgh but we should not be expecting to see Mendenhall next week against Denver and maybe not for the rest of the playoffs. Issac...
The Steelers won their game on Sunday in Cleveland, but they lost their shot at the bye week that would have accompanied the AFC North title.
