The Steelers will host the Browns for the regular season finale.
Before the team takes the field for the last time in the regular season we’ll be looking around for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Sunday, Jan. 1st.
Take a seat
The list of guys who get to sit out against the Browns is limited to seven guys. The guys who are the most valuable as healthy and the guys who are already injured will comprise the bulk of that list.

A name that came up in Tomlin’s presser is safety Robert Golden, who suffered an ankle injury in the Ravens game, will also be out against Cleveland. Also sitting out due to injury is Ladarius Green, with his concussion.
You gone learn today
Ben Roethlisberger is a hands-on kind of teacher, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. He prefers to work out options on the field rather than in the film room. Fowler says that the last few days of practice, the Big 3 of Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell worked off to the side.
The idea was to sharpen and continue the chemistry these three have out on the field in terms of being able to make plays that leave defensive coordinators awake at night. With the three of them having the day off against Cleveland they needed the work to stay ready for the playoffs, which will begin next weekend.
They just make this up as they go along
So Antonio Brown’s winning touchdown was kind of a big deal. It won the AFC North for the Steelers, it was pretty dramatic, and there was an obvious face mask penalty that was missed. I know, it’s shocking.
The moment that was captured where Brown exhibits all of his strengths and talents to reach the ball over the goal line also reveals Ravens safety Eric Weddle’s hand firmly gripped onto Brown’s facemask.
The picture was pretty well covered, even the NFL used it as their Twitter cover photo for a period of time. However, they still didn’t seem it necessary to fine Weddle for the obvious face mask their officials missed, reminds Mike Florio. Why am I not surprised?
