    (This has nothing to do with the first 3 weeks of the season but I love it) :D

    The Pittsburgh Steelers opened the season in Foxborough vs the defending Superbowl champion New England Patriots and the Pats showed why they’re the champs beating Pittsburgh 34-14. It was a fairly even game stat wise but Pittsburgh turned the ball over 4 times, committed 9 penalties and against a team like New England that spells doom. In week twos home opener the Steelers welcomed the San Francisco 49ers into Heinz Field for each teams first user vs user affair. Over the years Pittsburgh has proven to be an extremely tough team to beat at home and week two proved no different. After a Carlos Hyde TD run and two Pittsburgh field goals SF had the 7-6 halftime lead. Both teams moved the ball well in the 2nd half and after Pittsburgh kicked it’s third FG putting them up 9-7. After kicking a FG of their own then moving into scoring range with a 10-9 lead the niners looked primed to extend the lead but Steeler LB Ryan Shazier leveled SF QB Colin Kaepernick causing him to fumble the ball and after a scramble for the ball the steelers emerged from the pile with the ball. Big Ben then tossed a screen pass to LeVeon Bell who worked his magic and scampered 76 yards for what proved to be the game winning score and after a successful 2pt attempt Pittsburgh lead 17-10. The Steelers added another FG putting them up 20-10 and the 49ers added another FG of their own cutting the lead to 7 with just over 2 minutes to go. The Steelers were then able to run out the clock and hold on for a 20-13 win. GG CHUNKNESS Week three saw the Pittsburgh and the Rams do battle in St.Louis. Big Ben was nearly perfect in the Week 3 match up going 24-29 for 288 yards and 3 TDs. LeVeon Bell carried 26 times for 113 yards and TD in the 41-20 win. Pittsburgh still has to wait for another 3 games to be played vs the CPU before heading to Arrowhead to take on Michael Overman and the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.
