The Steelers got worked in Philadelphia but have returned home to face the Kansas City Chiefs.
After a horrible outing against the Eagles the team now has to regroup and focus on the Chiefs. While the wheels go in motion for the game plan we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Friday, Sept. 30th.
I thought I told you that we won’t stop
Ben Roethlisberger explained why he was in the game with five minutes left while training by 31 points, throwing a 60-yarder to Darrius Heyward-Bey. He said he was still in the game at that point and not on the sidelines because he just doesn’t quit.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler explains that as long as the running game with Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams can get the running game established against Kansas City then there won’t be a need for Roethlisberger to be in the game late trailing by 31 points still trying to make something happen.
Roethlisberger is 10-of-26 with zero touchdowns and three interceptions since he was literally in the zone against Washington in the first game of the season. Let’s get back there, shall we?
Jimmy Fallon usually does the Tonight Show Superlatives prior to each week’s Sunday Night Football Game. This week he was pretty heavy on the Kansas City Chiefs but had some jokes at the expense of Antonio Brown and Vince Williams.
Next next man up
It is getting mighty crowded in the Steelers training room these days. After Thursday’s practice Mike Prisuta described how B.J. Finney, who was stepping in for the injured Ramon Foster, was now injured. That is troubling.
That leaves the next, next man up as Chris Hubbard. Hubbard has appeared in eight regular-season games but has never started one. He may get that chance this Sunday night.
