Oh No They Di'nt... E-mail

No better way to follow up a spanking than to flip the script and do some demolition of your own. 

One week after getting shellacked by the Patriots, the Steelers managed to beat the Raiders, and the refs, in convincing fashion, hosing the stench off of Heinz Field and keeping pace with the Ravens, who after beating the mighty Brian St. Pierre also moved to 7-3. 

I personally enjoyed Big Ben out rushing almost the entire Raiders team...

...which ended up with 61 total rushing yards to Ben's 55 (he did, however, outrush the entire Raiders RB corps, 55 to 47).

As well as Richard Seymour's lovetap heard 'round the NFL...

And who could forget the Raiders QBs' performance?

Besides everyone, that is.

And how about James Harrison's five tackle, two sack, one forced fumble, one INT performance? 

Pretty sure Jason Campbell is still picking spikes from Silverback's cleat out of his ass.

Or James Farrior's seven tackle, one sack, one pass defended?

Potsie was all man today, doing it big at 35 years old.  

There were obviously some not so bright spots in what happened in Pittsburgh this afternoon. Injuries to Maurkice Pouncey and Chris Kemoeatu come to mind, as do the 163 yards the Steelers were penalized, many of which were embarrassingly bad calls. 

But yes, my friends, this was an old fashioned beatdown, after which the Raiders probably won't walk right for a week. 

So let's all enjoy this one thoroughly, because now it's...

Full recap to come tomorrow or whenever. 

7-3, headed to Buffalo next to take on the 2-8 Bills, who overcame what at one point was a 21-point 1st half deficit to beat the BengaLOLs 49-31 today. 

Come get some, Ryan Fitzpatrick. 

Feel free to deposit all of your preliminary thoughts in the comments.
