    Not the way the Steelers are playing. They looking real sloppy and they're missing key players and you can tell it really is effecting them. Not to mention Ben got that ankle aggravated again

    Football games always change in the 2nd half.

    However, since the Steelers are the favorites, I hope the trend continues because all home playoff teams have out scored their opponents by 14, 21, and 17 points in the 2nd half.

    Completely agree with you that games change in the 2nd half. At this rate though, looks like it's going to be a blowout to me. Steelers D needs to get it together first.

    I do wonder if Ben is hurting his team more than helping. His ankle is clearly bothering him a lot.

    To be or not to be........................wait what was the question? This signature has been Tapatalk approved.

    I personally think it's hurting the team now. He's a very competitive guy though so he won't throw in the towel, especially in a playoff game. Looks like his competitiveness could lead to their end though....

    Broncos go robbed on the fumble with the early whistle.

    I swear refs need to quit doing that.

    2nd half, different game. Steelers got a gift from the ref: a TD that shouldn't been.

    Good game so far.

    yep that blown call could have been the boost the Steelers needed. Still a lot of game left.

    Lol. I am here. I am not afraid to eat my words. Lions had that game but too many missed tackles and dropped interceptions.

    Would have been interesting to see what happened if refs hadn't given a couple of gifts to the saints but in the end the Lions fell apart.

    Too many haters out there. Didn't stand a chance? I guess a three point game going into the 4th quarter is your idea of no chance. Lol. Of course we can't forget the 7 points the refs took from the Lions with the Brees fumble.

    Lions did better than I thought they would. But when Brees got started 2nd half, with 5 straight TD drives, he was unstoppable.

    The way the second half was going for the Saints, yes I do say the Lions stood no chance. Saints had to come from behind too which is why they only had a 3pt lead, but they were just plain dominant. Kept the pace and ran away in the 4th.

    You can call me a hater if you want, still doesn't change the results of the game. Hell, I'm an Eagles fan, so go ahead and take a couple shots:D

    I hear what you are saying but you can't say they had no chance. Refs took away a TD on the Brees fumble. So it should have been 21-10 @ halftime. Then instead of down by 3 going into 4th.....Lions would have been up by 4. Brees threw a press right into Detroit hands at the goal line that was dropped. If he catches that, no TD for Saints.

    There is no excuse for falling apart in the 4th but anyone who watches football knows that being down by 10 on the road against the Saints changes things. If those two plays were made.....Lions would be going to Lambau. But they didn't get it done. My only point is they had a chance.
