The Steelers returned to their winning form against the Chiefs and look to stay perfect against the AFC when the Jets come to town.
While the team recovers from their latest victory and puts the Jets plan into motion we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Saturday, Oct. 8th.
Brown just wants to have fun
We just can’t get passed this apparently. Antonio Brown is appealing his $24K fine from the NFL for his “sexually suggestive” touchdown celebration last week and is asking for further clarification on what he is and isn’t allowed to do whilst playing a game.

The idea that there is such a penalty called “excessive celebration” shows what boring-ass guys are actually running this league. Think about the fact that there are literally grown ass men and women sitting in the stands who have painted themselves in celebration of their team.
Yet the players on the field actually playing the game are being told to “tone it down” when they do something well. And the NFL wonders why the ratings are dropping this season.
Twerking in solidarity
He’ll be wearing the wrong uniform on Sunday but by these two gestures it is safe to say that Jets receiver Brandon Marshall is a good dude. First, he declared that if he manages to score a touchdown against the Steelers he’ll twerk in the end zone as a form of protest for the attention Brown is getting.
I hope he scores but only in garbage time in a blowout Steelers win.
His next gesture is much more meaningful. In honor of DeAngelo Williams’ goal to provide free mammograms to women he’s wearing special pink cleats which he plans to give to Williams to auction off to help reach his goal. Good dude.
Show us your tats, bro
There’s no doubt that there will be plenty of Steeler fans in Heinz Field on Sunday sporting Steeler or Pittsburgh-themed tattoos. There will also be a player in a Jets uniform sporting a Steeler tattoo. ESPN’s Rich Cimini reports that Jets safety and special teams player Rontez Miles has some Pittsburgh ink.
Miles grew up in Braddock, PA and got the Steelers tattoo with some buddies from high school. He’ll have about a hundred friends and family members in the stands wearing Jets merch, but he knows they all grew up bleeding Black & Gold.
