Steelers Defense Lowers the Boom on Raiders in 35-3 Win

One week after being embarrassed at home by Tom Brady – again – the Steelers had their gut check of the season Sunday, and answered it with a complete beating of the Raiders at home 35-3. The Steelers trailed 3-0, but came back after a slow start and ran all over the Raiders. They scored […]

The reason why the Raiders benched QB Jason Campbell
