Steelers HC Mike Tomlin discusses team calling just one blitz in win over Bills

  Steelers HC Mike Tomlin discusses team calling just one blitz in win over Bills The Pittsburgh Steelers pulled off one of the bigger surprises of Week 1 of the NFL season last weekend when they beat Buffalo on the road 23-16. The Bills went 13-3 last season and reached the AFC Championship Game. Many expected them to keep the momentum going, but the Steelers shut them down. And they did so by doing something perhaps unexpected. © Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers only blitzed one time in the game, yet had 18 QB pressures — more than any team in Week 1. So, uh, this @Steelers defense is kinda scary.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin responded to remarks Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd made Monday about the Steelers' effort late in the game Sunday.

"I don't care about Tyler Boyd's opinion regarding what transpired at any point in that game," Tomlin said. "Like I said after the game, and it includes him, I tip my cap to that team and that organization for their performance and win. I proceed on to the next challenge. ... He's entitled to his opinion, but I don't have to respond to it."

Boyd spoke candidly Monday, and may have touched a nerve with Pittsburgh's players, coaches and fans.

Washington Football Team coach Ron Rivera sounds off on COVID-19 vaccine misinformation

  Washington Football Team coach Ron Rivera sounds off on COVID-19 vaccine misinformation It's not surprising that Rivera is this frustrated about the country's lack of progress in getting people vaccinated. Although he has received the vaccine, the 59-year-old has a compromised immune system after battling cancer in 2020. He's at greater risk for higher complications if he contracts the deadly virus. Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that nearly 90% of all NFL players had received at least one dose of the vaccine. However, some players are still hesitant, and that reluctance to get the shot is widespread throughout the United States.According to the Mayo Clinic, only 50.9% of the U.S.

Boyd was asked what he thought about how the Steelers assessed their opponent during Sunday's 24-10 loss compared with Bengals' teams of the past.

"I think the good thing about that win was not only did the Steelers feel that, everybody in the country felt it," Boyd told reporters. "Because the last plays of the game for them, they gave up. You could see it. They had three drops in a row. For a team to see that is giving us more power, giving us the antidote to know how good we are.

Cowboys' Mike McCarthy: Scoreboard malfunction led to timing 'issues' that forced 56-yard FG

  Cowboys' Mike McCarthy: Scoreboard malfunction led to timing 'issues' that forced 56-yard FG Ahead of Greg Zuerlein's game-winning kick, Sunday's contest took a confusing turn as the Cowboys appeared to be letting the clock wind down with 30 seconds left to play and the scoreboard knotted up 17-17. According to McCarthy, the bizarre scene occurred because the clock he was viewing at SoFi Stadium went out, and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore's view of the time was blocked by a cameraman."The clock situation was just different," McCarthy said, via NFL.com. "I've never had a clock go off the board on me like that.

"So for a team to just lay down like that before the game was over - because no matter what, no matter how much we're losing by or whatever the case may be, I know me and I know us. We're not giving up. We are going to continue to try and make plays and make something happen. But they portrayed to the whole nation on TV what they were about and how they gave up. So we just got to take advantage."

Boyd scored the first of two first-half touchdowns for the Bengals on Sunday, bouncing off defender Melvin Ingram III and running to the end zone.

The Bengals and Steelers are scheduled to meet again Nov. 28 at Paul Brown Stadium.
