December 2016

The Pittsburgh Steelers headed up to Buffalo for an important late season matchup with the Bills. The Steelers needed the win to keep their playoff hopes alive and, despite 3 interceptions from Ben Roethlisberger, they prevailed 27-20.

Le’Veon Bell put on an historic performance as he set the Steeler single game rushing record by toting the rock 38 times for 236 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also added 4 catches for 62 yards, falling just short of 300 yards from scrimmage. Bell displayed his usual combination of shiftiness, patience, and burst and he wove his way through the Buffalo defenders.

The Steelers travel to Cincinnati this week for an important division game before their big showdown with the Baltimore Ravens on Christmas.

In a stunning upset, the Ottawa Redblacks defeated the heavily favored Calgary Stampeders 39-33 in overtime to win the 104th Grey Cup CFL championship. At quarterback for the Redblacks was 17 year CFL veteran Henry Burris, who won MVP honors.

The Redblacks took a 27-7 lead in the third quarter and controlled the game to that point. However, the Stamps staged a furious rally and tied the game after a successful onside kick with 10 seconds remaining.

Ottawa scored first in overtime with a pass from Burris to Ernest Jackson, who made a catch reminiscent of Max McGee in Superbowl I. Calgary was unable to respond as Bo Levi Mitchell’s third down attempt was incomplete.

Hank became the oldest Grey Cup MVP in history at 41 and completed 35 of 46 passes for 461 yards, 3 TD’s and one interception while adding two more TD’s rushing. It was a defining performance for a player in the twilight of his career and brought Ottawa it’s first Grey Cup victory since 1976. The 2016 Grey Cup will go down as one of the most exciting in history.
