|roadblock' but won't look ahead to Week|

PITTSBURGH -- The platform seemed obvious enough. The Pittsburgh Steelers had just defeated the Packers on Sunday night to go 9-2 and tie the Patriots atop the AFC with two weeks to go before the teams clash, likely to decide home-field advantage in the playoffs. And Mike Tomlin had already welcomed the New England conversation by telling NBC in a pregame interview that he anticipates fireworks between the two -- in December and January matchups.
Several Steelers players weren't prepared to go there. Instead, they fell back on the one-game-at-a-time mantra that defines most locker rooms. "It's such a humbling sport -- we play the Bengals at the Bengals Anthony Barr Jersey [on Monday]. You don't think they want to beat us really badly?" guard David DeCastro said. "Come on. We'll have our hands full." DeCastro acknowledged the Patriots command attention. Just not this week.
"They are the Patriots, there's something to be said for them," DeCastro said. "Obviously we'd had a little bit of a roadblock with them. So it is a big game, I'll give them credit. But I'll stick to worrying about the Bengals and Geno Atkins and [Vontaze] Burfict."
The Packers game showcased the Steelers' strengths and weaknesses. The offense can still dazzle, with Ben Roethlisberger recording http://www.authenticwashingtonnationals.com/Stephen-Strasburg-Jersey his second straight four-touchdown performance, Le'Veon Bell doing it all and Antonio Brown increasing the degree of difficulty seemingly with each catch.
But the defense has given up five passing plays of http://www.officialcelticsproshop.com/Marcus_Smart_Jersey 50-plus yards in the past three weeks, two of which came against Packers quarterback http://www.football49ersofficialonline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ROBBIE_GOULD_JERSEY.html Brett Hundley on third downs, and none of which came against an elite quarterback. Bell knows the Bengals won't be much easier. Still, he's watching the AFC contenders from afar to see where the Steelers stand.
"I wouldn't necessarily say I'm looking forward to the Patriots, but obviously I'm watching them, seeing those guys still winning and doing their job," Bell said. "When we get in the stadium with those guys, I'll worry about those guys Womens Miles Plumlee Jersey then. Until then, I'm Joe Flacco Jersey worried about the team we're playing."
Added cornerback Coty Sensabaugh: "Time will tell when we play them ... . We look forward to playing everybody." Guard Ramon Foster saw Sunday's squeak-by win as a reminder of how the Steelers need to handle themselves every week.
"The way it lines up, the only thing that stops us is us. We have to be a team to realize that," Foster said. "We have to be a team to realize the other teams that we’re playing on the schedule are going to play us as tough as anybody else in the league. We can’t lay down any kind of sympathy for nobody. I http://www.officialbucksshops.com/authentic-42-vin-baker-jersey.html don’t care what their record is. We have to smash faces.”
NFL quarterbacks have launched, tossed, shoveled, flipped and otherwise delivered more than 11,000 passes this season. Some QBs are rising, others are falling and a great many are what 2017 QB Tiers voters thought they were heading into the season.
Nearly four months after 50 coaches and evaluators voted all projected starters into five possible performance tiers, it's time to revisit some of the more interesting cases. I've singled out a combination of 16 risers, fallers, newcomers and players who are otherwise fun to debate right now. First, here's a refresher on each tier:
"He feels good. He feels comfortable," Carroll said of Chancellor, who signed a three-year extension with Seattle over the summer. "He's not in discomfort at all, which is good. But there's a process as far as when we do the Alex Petrovic Jersey work with up-and-down stuff. We'll figure that out. Really, I'm trying to be very respective of Kam and let him kind of call the shots as far as what's known and all that kind of stuff and how he wants to talk about it, because this is him, it's not us, it's him. We'll support him all that we can."
