The Steelers totally got jobbed on an offensive pass interference call late in the first quarter. The receiver put his hand on the defender's back for a second or so, no push off, no grab, no effort to impede the defender in any way but it still drew a flag. But hey, that's why we can review those plays now right? Wrong. The call was upheld on review.

At this point I have no idea what pass interference is anymore.

Why did the Bengals take 2 timeouts on the Steelers 2 minute drive to end the half? So you give them the opportunity to score and get the ball back down at least 7.

8 sacks. Dalton was definitely the red-headed stepchild.

Can't quote those who answered my question.
Thanks for that, for some reason I was under the impression that the time difference was greater.

The Ravens posted a story with video on their website entitled "Marlon Humphrey didnt choke Odell Beckham.

It included: "Odell Beckham Jr. definitely punched Marlon Humphrey – also grabbing the cornerback’s facemask, attempting a sweeping leg kick and pulling him to the ground.

Humphrey definitely did not choke Beckham."

Surprisingly, it's not as cut and dried now. Should be interesting to see what the NFL does to Humphrey. And to Beckham for the punch and facemask.

Looked like Humphrey grabbed the jersey first, then they both went to the ground (rather awkwardly), Odell threw a punch, then the whole choking/grabbing thing. Humphrey could have let go and walked away. The offsetting penalties were deserved, not sure if anything beyond that is necessary. But the NFL may feel they need to save face somehow.

I have to say though that I love the Browns/Ravens rivalry. You couldn’t have a more natural sports rivalry if you tried. You lose your team which goes to another town and changes its name, and get a new team with a lot of resentment left over. It would be like if Seattle got a new NBA team and started playing against the Thunder.

I'd say it is cut and dried. That video is crystal clear to me, he's holding the front of his jersey the whole time while Beckham is grabbing his facemask and generally flopping around like a fish. The fact that the ref standing over him didn't through the flag probably indicates he saw the same thing and that the media and general public were foolish to go on the warpath.

And 12 QB hits. 175 yards of total offense FOR THE GAME. Bengals fans around here are calling for Dalton's head. I'm like "dude, Andre Smith is our starting left tackle, and Bobby Hart is our starting right tackle. Go fuck yourself!". I mean...we have the absolute worst offensive line in the league. Mixon can't find daylight and Dalton has zero time.

AJ Green needs to be traded. If I were him, I would fall prey to the Jalen Ramsey mystery sickness and bail on this entire season. There's no benefit to him trying to come back to this shitshow.

It's truly heartbreaking to see Vontaze Burfict denied the chance to play.

Not only is he a Raider, which is entirely appropriate, but he's one of their captains, which is even more appropriate.

Fortunately, they still have Incognito and I'm surprised I haven't heard much about him since his signing. I'll watch Raiders and Bears this weekend so I'll get to see him play though.

If only there had been something Burfict could have done to avoid this outcome.
