Found November 02, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The NFL has received assurances that Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers in MetLife Stadium would not disrupt recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell discussed concerns about transportation issues, police and emergency efforts with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the NFL confirmed Friday. Christie told Goodell that the game would not be "diverting any resources from relief efforts" and that he was pleased it would be played as scheduled in East Rutherford, N.J. Because of the damaged left by the storm, the Steelers changed their travel plans and will arrive the morning of the game from Pittsburgh rather than stay in the New York area on Saturday night, the team previously announced.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will have a cameo role this season in the hit AMC show, "The Walking Dead."

Justin Tuck: Steelers offensive line has ‘gotten away with murder’

One of the best ways for the New York Giants to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend would be to put some pressure on Ben Roethlisberger — something very few teams have had success doing this season. Roethlisberger has been sacked only 13 times through the first seven games, which is one of the reasons he has completely nearly 67% of his passes and has an impressive QB rating...

Steelers-Giants to go on as scheduled

Is Antonio Brown Paying For The Emmanuel Sanders Cramp?

While I was not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown backpedaling 20-yards into the end zone on the punt return last week against the Washington Redskins, I think him being fined $10,000 is way too harsh. To put that in perspective, the Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL this past week for previously not listing free safety Ed Reed on the injury...

Travel changes for Steelers could affect game performance early on

NFL teams, and really I think most sports teams are creatures of habit. You hear all the time about coaches and players preferring to stay in a routine during the week whenever possible. When confronted with a unique situation they’ll downplay the change whenever possible but still, players are human too and have to adjust. The Steelers this week will have to jump out of that comfort...

New York Giants: On The Verge Of Annual Midseason Collapse

The defending Super Bowl champs are looking pretty good right now having won their fourth straight game. Sitting atop the NFC East with a record of 6-2 might lead fans of Big Blue to think they’ll cruise into the playoffs with a first-round bye, right?
