Pittsburgh 27 – Miami 20

Well . . . . this one was pretty ugly!!!  The Steelers and the Dolphins!  Neither team could move the ball, with both teams racking up the exact same total yardage – only 237 yards apiece.  Ryan Fitzpatrick of Miami was 13-29 for 171 yards and 2 TD’s, but suffered 3 interceptions and, personally, lost two of the Dolphins’ three fumbles.  On the other side, Steelers’ QB Devlin Hodges was just as bad – completing 14 passes for only 122 yards.  Plus, Pittsburgh’s running game was awful, averaging only 2.7 yards on 44 rushes.  In fact, the highlight of the game may have been Miami’s fake field goal, where Albert Wilson completed a touchdown pass to the place-kicker, Jason Sanders!  So, the Steelers are still alive while the Dolphins are eliminated . . . but, unless Ben Roethlisberger is healthy enough to play in their next game, I’m not optimistic about their chances, despite their great defense.
