Ben has thrown three picks, although two were the receivers' fault. (I missed the first one, so I don't know who was responsible.) Yet somehow the Steelers are winning by 7 in a rain soaked, sloppy game. (Just saw a highlight. First one was Ben's fault.)

Andrew Luck admits he hurt his shoulder snow boarding.

I like your new punt returner.

Me too!

Also, Leveon who? This is NOT what Bell and his agent were rooting for today. Conner has 100+ yards and 2 TDs and we're still in the third quarter.

How about Ryan Fitzpatrick's one game per season where people wonder why he isn't a starter?

To be fair, it's the Browns.

So far the only real surprise to me is how badly the Bucs are killing the Saints.

It's shocking.

They're better than you think and years past.

Also, the Steelers just got fucked by a bad call and no obvious way to overturn it in replay.

Nope, it was already dead. Right call was made.

AND ANOTHER FUMBLE..oh my. Garrett.

Browns have to go more than 1 yard, so Steelers should probably still feel good.

Probably. I'm still pissed about the horrible fucking they got on the punt return.

5 TOs. If the Steelers win, the Browns should all commit seppuku.

If the Browns lose, I'm saying this is some pretty good evidence that the Browns are still the Browns. If you cannot win with 5 TOs, wtf?

Well, I was right the first time.

Nice catch by Gordon.

I thought so too, but it also made me realize I have no idea what a catch is anymore "by rule". The ball was clearly moving in his hands on the way down.

The officials inability to overturn that clear turnover on the punt was the turning point in this game.

The Steelers would have had a 2 TD lead and the ball deep in Browns territory.

I think... only people wearing black + gold share your opinion :)

I missed the punt turnover play. What happened?

You'd have to be blind. He, literally, rotated his hands to adjust for the movement.

Punt bounced off the ground and hit Chubb's helmet. Chubb flinched when it hit him, but camera angles were only at him and behind him. None from the sides. Steelers players pounced on the ball and Cleveland players tried as well, but the officials on the field didn't make the right call. Thus, "indisputable evidence" came into play.

Here's a shock: A Mike Tomlin coached team is completely undisciplined. All these flags negating big plays...

In related news, I fucking hate Mike Tomlin.

The most overrated coach in history.

In other related news, I discovered YouTube TV's insistence on thinking I live in Detroit and not in a Toledo suburb means I can't watch the game on my TV. Instead I had to rely upon reddit to watch a stream.

Why is Ben licking his fingers to wet them in a downpour?
