While the team returns to Pittsburgh and gets ready to face the Bengals in an AFC North showdown we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Monday, Dec. 12th.
Bell became the first player this season to single-handedly outgain an opponent as the Bills only managed 275 total yards of offense. Bell’s day included 236 yards on the ground (a franchise record) on 38 carries, 62 receiving yards on four catches and three touchdowns.
Bell wasn’t the only one making history on Sunday with the win over Buffalo. This was Mike Tomlin’s 100th win of his career. It came in his 157th game, the fewest games in Steelers history to the 100-win mark.

The win by Tomlin also makes Pittsburgh the only franchise with three head coaches with at least 100 wins each. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler talks about how the defense is peaking at the right moment for the team. I’ll say.
The eighth win by Tomlin also means that he joins George Allen, John Madden and Vince Lombardi as the only NFL coaches to have coached at least 10 seasons without a losing record.

Prior to kick off in Buffalo there was panic about the possibility of another Deflategate scandal when Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer announced that the Giants had alerted the NFL about some under-inflated footballs in last week’s 24-14 win over New York. Crap.
