Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was spotted going after a defender’s knees in Sunday’s win over the Browns.
That defender was Browns defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah, who was perplexed as to why Big Ben was diving for his ankles. Not only did Roethlisberger go after him, but he then latched on to Ogbah’s foot and wouldn’t let go until the referee pulled him off.
Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was controversially tossed during an interception return for touchdown, a play which was called back due to two penalties. As the Seahawks were heading toward the end zone, Davante Adams and Lane got tangled up, and the refs believed Lane threw a punch, although replay showed otherwise.
Once the drama settled, both teams were locked in a hard-fought defensive battle.
While Rodgers struggled at times, running back Ty Montgomery really had a hard time finding room. The converted wide receiver finished with just 54 yards and a touchdown off of 19 carries, but he proved a valuable asset late in the game.
