Two years ago, Indianapolis Colts fan Nick Running met Jane Momany, a Minnesota Vikings fan, at a game in Minnesota.
Three months after that meeting, Running saw that the Vikings were selling bricks to fans surrounding U.S. Bank Stadium, which would open in 2016.
Despite only knowing Momany for a short time, he was ready to make the purchase.
On the brick was inscribed: “Jane, will you marry me? Love, Nick.”
Roethlisberger’s overall attempts per game are down from 39 to 36.6, but he maintains that his stats are secondary to wins. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who’s seen Roethlisberger over the years change his game to become a quick-strike passer who takes fewer sacks, said Antonio Brown and other Steelers playmakers understand throwing 40 passes isn’t best for the game plan some weeks.
“Heâ€™s seeing what he needs to see, doing a great job preparation-wise,” Haley said of Roethlisberger. “The ballâ€™s coming out when it needs to come out. And heâ€™s able to give you those big plays when you need them. I think heâ€™s just continued to get better each and every year.”
And he’s three touchdown passes away from 300, a feat just nine quarterbacks in NFL history have reached.
Game Youth John Carlson Jersey
Game Youth Alexey Shved Jersey Bell has been a central figure in the Steelers’ game plan, with 118 carries over the past four weeks and 166 total touches for 933 yards over his last five weeks. But if the Bengals put that extra safety in the box, deep balls to Brown might be there. And despite a miserable last two months, deep threat Sammie Coates had a few big gains against Cincinnati in Week 2 and hopes to duplicate that production.
