I would kick this. but...
Sigh. Najee is a big, tough RB. That first down was all guts.
Good start, let’s punch this in.
We need to score and get some distance.
Nice job to pick that up. Najee burrowing in there.

I'm stunned by all the 4th down tries in the league this year. Lots of teams doing it in crazy situations. I don't get it. Maybe it's a product of rule changes favoring the offense so heavily, but I've seen a lot of points left on the field.

Cleveland in particular has cost themselves with failed 4th downs in critical situations.

I prefer to play the percentages. But I'm obviously glad we picked that up.
Prayers out to you Cali!
Snell
Nice pass
Decent run by Snell.

I still don't get WRs in motion ending up behind a guard or tackle at the snap every play. WTF is that?
Let’s punch this in.

You're at least 30 seconds ahead of my feed.  Laugh

Just saw the catch by Johnson. Heck of a throw and catch.
Bears playing dumb tonight with all those penalties.
Claypool isn’t on the same page as Ben

Typical, unfortunately.
I am catching up now. Had a teary eyed moment.
Muuuuuuuuuuth!!!!!!!
Nice patiants by Ben! TD
Friermuth!!!

.....but he shouldn't be wearing 88
Freiermuth!!! Man, we have some HIGH producing rookies so far this season. He's been doing great.

Excellent patience by Ben, great protection for Ben.

What a great start for the Steelers!

 Yeah, that weirds me out a little, too... but he's at least doing it decent justice.

It's a streaky, follow-the-leader league.   It's fashionable to "go for it" this year, as opposed to being a dumb-assed pariah for trying it

Yep, he just waited 'em out, found the open man. 

Credit the O-line, too... he had FOREVER back there.

It's one of those things where I almost wonder if there pressure from the league to do it, believing it creates more excitement.

 You won't get any argument from me. Swann is my guy.

It certainly induces heart-attacks.....

There shouldn't be a flag. Good non-call.
What’s with Ray Ray getting run down from behind by a linebacker…?
