Every Dog Has His Day

Ben Roethlisberger is sacked for a loss by Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Corey Williams. The Browns sacked Big Ben eight times in the contest.

Associated Press — There’s nothing Super about the Pittsburgh Steelers anymore. The defending NFL champions lost their fifth straight and had their playoff hopes sacked by the lowly Cleveland Browns, who ended a 12-game losing streak against their bitter rival by beating the Steelers 13-6 on Thursday night in subzero wind chills.

Ben Roethlisberger was sacked eight times and lost for the first time in 11 career games against the Browns (2-11), who extended Pittsburgh’s longest losing streak in six years and defeated the Steelers (6-7) at home for the first time since 2000.

The Steelers are going to need help to make the postseason, a stunning freefall for a team that hit the season’s halfway point at 6-2.

Oh I love it. This was a fun game to watch. The Browns’ season has just been miserable in 2009. But they went out their and played their asses off in 12 degree temperatures and 20 mile per hour wind gusts.

It’s been said before and it will be said again because it is so true. “Any team can beat any other team on any given Sunday” (Or in this case, Thursday haha). After what transpired tonight and last week when the Steelers fell to Oakland, the Ravens cannot overlook the Lions.

Things are boding well for Baltimore, if they can win out. According to the website PlayoffStatus.com, if the Ravens win their remaining four games, they have an 87% chance of making the playoffs. And that number is not taking into account the Steelers latest loss.
