Well, it is set. Broncos play the Steelers next Sunday in the Divisional playoff round. An incredibly gutty display by Ben Roethlisberger, obviously gutting it out on the last drive with a severely injured soldier. Hats off to a tremendous final drive.
Unfortunately, it was a game littered by thuggish, cheap shot plays. From both sides.
If I was a Bengals fan, I'd be sickened to watch clowns like Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones on my team. Ultimately, true character comes out, and both acted as their reputations, costing their team when it counted, losing the game due to their lack of discipline and selfish play. Hello to the off season guys.
The NFL has to be embarrassed by that display tonight. I suspect some hefty fines will be handed down.
