In yet another sign that the Mayans may have only missed by a few days, the usually indestructable Heath Miller left the Steelers-Bengals massive divisional game that’s featured back-to-back incomprehensible field-goal decisions with a knee sprain.
Thankfully he waited to get injured until late in the fourth quarter, making the fantasy impact minimal after he caught three passes for 45 yards. He also didn’t have to be associated with a hopeless Ben Roethlisberger pass that landed in Reggie Nelson’s hands, an interception which led to the game-winning field goal, and a January without playoff football in Pittsburgh.
It was a fitting ending for a Steelers season that’s featured far too many games lost in the final minutes. Until next year, yellow handkerchiefs. Until next year.
