The Steelers have finally gotten on the right foot while the NFL's leading rusher got off the wrong one. Willie Parker will be sidelined for the remainder of the season with a fractured fibula that he sustained on his first rush of the game. In his absence, the Steelers had, what was in my opinion, their most dominating rushing attack of the season. The injury finally gives the Steelers the big break that they so desperately needed. NFL, watch out.! Were back. Smashmouth football, baby. Pittsburgh style!
Ben Roethlisberger threw the third perfect quaterback - rating game of his short career. That ties an NFL record (Peyton Manning). If not for Tom Brady's ridiculous season, Ben might have (should have) been the league's MVP. Take a look at his stats. They might suprise you.
With a win the Steelers moved to 10 - 5 and a clinched a playoff birth. Should they win next week against the Ravens they will move to 11 - 5 and take the division. In 1992 the Steelers had a rookie coach. His name was Bill Cowher and his team went 11 - 5 taking the division. Good job Tomlin.
