According to Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been fined $10,000 for taunting last week in the win over the Washington Redskins.
Brown was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct last Sunday after he finished off his 78 yard, third quarter punt return for a touchdown by running the last 20 yards backwards into the end zone. The touchdown did not stand, however, as Curtis Brown was flagged on the return for an illegal block in the block.

BEST OF MAXIM
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...
THE WALKING DEAD
Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will have a cameo role this season in the hit AMC show, "The Walking Dead." Ward will play a zombie of course and the 7 minute video below has all of the details. The 36-year old Ward, who is now an NFL analyst for NBC Sports, had over 12,000 receiving yards in his career for Steelers and has never been shy when a camera...
The Pittsburgh Steelers resumed practice on Thursday as they prepare to take on the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
The Thursday injury report is now out and it shows that linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and running back Baron Batch (shin) did not practice. The status of Woodley heading into the weekend now appears to...
Sure, the deep passes to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace are down so far this season under the direction of new offensive coordinator Todd Haley, but he is still on pace to have a solid season, and the process might just be increasing his market value as well.
Despite the lack of deep receptions, the Steelers fourth year receiver has 36 catches on the season and...
The players on the Pittsburgh Steelers defense liken Hall of Fame coordinator Dick LeBeau to a father figure. When the critics started chirping the 75-year-old LeBeau was losing his touch after the Steelers got off to a slow start, his players rallied around him.
The proof is on the field.
Nearing the season's midway point, Pittsburgh (4-3) is second in the NFL in yards allowed...
Mike Bires tweets that Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer missed Friday’s practice with a quad injury and adds that “all signs point to” Isaac Redman getting the start against the Giants this weekend.

TweetLast week the Steelers wore those hideous striped uniforms but the only uniform Big Ben Roethlisberger should be wearing is an orange prison overall.
Just having a little fun with Big Ben and yes the neck was purposely left out of the funny mugshot picture, just seemed funnier that way. Can't wait for the New York Giants to pound him (no pun intended) week 9.
Due to Sandy's aftermath, the Steelers have no choice but to fly into Newark on Sunday morning and bus to its game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium that afternoon.
The hotel that the Pittsburgh Steelers were to stay at on Saturday in Jersey City is still without power so the team will fly in on Sunday for their 4:25pm game with the NY Giants.

Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) at New York Giants (6-2)
Last week, the Giants won in Dallas in the exact type of game they normally win. They are now 18-7 ATS as road favorites under Tom Coughlin. On the road in general, they are 50-25 ATS under Tom Coughlin, as opposed to 34-38 ATS at home. As home favorites of more than 3, which they are this week, they are 18-26 ATS under Tom Coughlin...
