Ben Roethlisberger Headlines Steelers Injury Report for Week 2

Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Ryan Fitzpatrick on opening weekend

Clockwise Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Ryan Fitzpatrick on opening weekend

Problem was, nothing was wrong with Patrick Mahomes', either.

Chiefs winless in Pittsburgh since 1986 (0-6); Steelers 15-2 in home openers at Heinz Field. Unfortunately it wasn't enough: the Steelers tied the Browns, setting them up for a rare 0-0-1 start to the season.

Two high-powered offenses go head to head on Sunday, led by two quarterbacks at different points in their career trajectories. Hill then took a slant route from Pat Mahomes, shed a tackler, and burst up the sideline for a 56-yard touchdown, and later scored on a shovel pass jet sweep on the goal line, capping off an incredible game in which he finished with 7 catches for 169 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Buffalo Bills last did it against them in 1991.

First Hurricane Florence deaths: mother, infant killed by tree
Henry McMaster has not yet lifted the evacuation order he put in place Tuesday, and it is not clear when the order will be lifted. In Hampstead, North Carolina, emergency responders going to a call for cardiac arrest found their path blocked by downed trees.


That had come into question when Roethlisberger sat out Thursday's practice after also missing Wednesday with a bruised elbow on his throwing arm. JuJu Smith-Schuster added five receptions for 119 yards on an ugly effort by Roethlisberger, who completed 23 of 41 passes for 335 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions.

Roethlisberger and Mahomes each threw three touchdown passes in the first half, with Mahomes getting the first three and Roethlisberger the next three. The Steelers answered with James Conner's 1-yard run on their first possession.

When the Steelers went three-and-out, it provided the Chiefs the opening they needed to pull away.

Joakim Noah to leave the New York Knicks
This would mean he'd be teaming up with his former teammates Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Aaron Brooks, and Taj Gibson. The relationship between Noah and the Knicks has been rocky from the start.


Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill for a 29-yard score with 13:42 to play in the fourth quarter in Pittsburgh. Steelers turned over ball six times vs. Browns.

Cam Heyward's forced fumble that was recovered by Anthony Chickillo at the Steelers 34 with 5:03 left provided a sliver of hope. Chris Boswell's extra point made it 42-37.

Browns' Gordon (hamstring) out vs. Saints
I would say "there's always next week", but that probably won't be the case for Gonzalez. "It's a week-by-week basis". The New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns could not have scripted a more engaging close to their game.
