Ben Roethlisberger: The NFL just announced Roethlisberger’s suspension will be reduced from six games to four. With backup QB Byron Leftwich getting injured last night, it looks like Pittsburgh could start Charlie Batch or Dennis Dixon in Roethlisberger’s absence. The Steelers open vs. Atlanta, at Tennessee, at Tampa, and vs. Baltimore. That’s very favorable – the two toughest opponents are at home. Feasibly, Pittsburgh could go 3-1, but 2-2 is more likely. Reminder: Peter King picked the Steelers to win the Super Bowl.
Burfict is a habitual line crosser.
The Cardinals QB will be out at least 8 weeks.
A 76-year-old man died in the stands at Notre Dame.
Dan Stoddard’s teammates call him “Old Man Dan.”
Can’t do that.
It was a blowout but not everyone was in a good mood.
