Week 1 Tidbits

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens

The Steelers were forced to play in “C” index throughout the game and still overcame three turnovers, key injuries (Gilbert Marcus & LaMarr Woodley) and early ejections to  James Farrior and Mike Wallace to soundly beat their AFC North rivals on the road.  LaMarr Woodley will be sidelined until week 3.

Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals secured the victory with a play worthy of a “Bloopers Highlight” reel when wingback, Dennis Roland, recovered a fumbled long snap on a field goal attemp, shed a couple of arm tackles and rumbled for a 31-yard touchdown in the final minute of regulation.
