Looked like Diggs had a passing option on the play... he switched the ball to his right hand and looked downfield.

Terrible play by Diggs if that's the case.

Imagine Linval Joseph and Hunter bearing down on you.

I'd need new pants.

The offense has gone way conservative. Where are the passes to Rudolph and the bootlegs for Keenum?

Starting to question if it was the cold that stalled the offense last week. I don't see much of a difference today

Why are the Steelers resting starters if they're still fighting for the #1 seed?

I'm very unimpressed by Case these last couple of games.

If om Zimmer I am reaming the offense a new one. That was very bad after they got the 14 point lead.
