The best performance from wild-card weekend goes to the Pittsburgh Steelers, regardless of what happens in Green Bay.
Pittsburgh’s three B’s proved once again to be a formidable force that the Miami Dolphins just couldn’t handle.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said following the team’s 30-12 win that if the team continues to play with the same blueprint it doesn’t matter who the opponent is.
“We had the big three rolling on offense and we stopped the run on defense,” Tomlin explain, via the Steelers’ official website. “We do those things, we have a chance to win games regardless of circumstance, situation or opponent.”
The Steelers coach has every reason to be confident on the aftermath of what took place versus Miami.
Pittsburgh is in the midst of an eight-game winning streak that spans back to Nov. 20. The Steelers have relied on their three-headed monster of Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger during their winning streak.
Tomlin was ho-hum about Bell’s performance after the game, as if we all should be used to it by now.
“He’s a man for all situation or circumstance. Whether it’s inside run, whether it’s perimeter run, whether it’s in the passing game. He’s just got a good skillset. He does a lot of things well. And so he adds value to us in that way.”
Pittsburgh appears to be on a mission, and that’s an alarming thing for the rest of the teams in the playoffs.
The Steelers have the highest ceiling of any team playing right now, and Sunday’s contest showcased that.
