Things break Steelers way for postseason spot



Cue the music...

Here we go Steelers, here we go.

Yeah, it's playoff time.

Thanks to a little help from the Buffalo Bills, the Pittsburgh Steelers are back in the postseason.

The wild-card team will play the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night.

That should be quite a showdown.

But before we get into that game, let's look at Sunday's regular-season finale.

It had the beginnings of the Ravens game from a week earlier, with turnovers costing the team and the Browns hanging around.

Then the Browns realized they were the Browns.

And some 200 miles away, Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick realized he was Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Steelers' defense showed some grit, Ben Roethlisberger found a receiver other than the irreplaceable Antonio Brown and the Steelers smothered the Browns at the end.

And speaking of Brown, that was one heck of a season: 136 receptions for 1,834 yards. Imagine what he would have done with a healthy Roethlisberger.

Now, it's on to the playoffs...

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
