Suisham Has Golden Toe in NY

With a Beauty and the Beast Performance against the Buffalo Bills, the Steelers pulled through in overtime with a 19-16 win over the Bills.

Newly signed Shaun Suisham was a perfect 4/4 today, including his OT winning field goal.

The Steelers came out of the locker room after halftime looking like a team who had already settled with only a 13-0 lead and the Bills came out a completely different team!

I will surely give credit to the Buffalo Bills for tying the game up and sending it into overtime by capitalizing on Steelers penalities and favored calls from the refs.

Missed opprotunities for the Steelers almost cost them the game, having 10 penalities for 107 yards is not acceptable in the NFL and as the Steelers almost found out, will surely cost you a W.

The win itself was not a pretty one, but a win is a win. Also, it gave place kicker Shaun Suisham the chance to prove to the Steelers faithful and Steelers team that he can be a part of a winning team.

With the game on the line in overtime, the Bills had the chance to put the game away with a wide open receiver down field, but the pass was dropped in the endzone and ultimately that catch gave the Steelers lifted spirits and the win on the next drive.

The Steelers last drive of the game started on their own 20 yard line with Mendenhall and Redman beating the ball across the first down marker each time they were called on. Mike Wallace also had a redemption, 17 yard, catch that gave the Steelers a HUGE first down after looking at a third and eight.

I wouldn’t say we’re (Steelers fans) are happy with the win in Buffalo, but like stated before, a win is a win and it will give good momentum into the game next Sunday against Baltimore in Baltimore.

With the win today the Steelers improve to 8-3.

Let’s go Steelers
