Hey Yinz Guys: 

The Carolina Kitty Cats come to tahn to take on the Black and Gold in this Thursday night prime time game. Carolina, led by quarterback Cam Newton, has been quietly winning this season and are really looking to take it up a notch against the Steelers. They are fresh from a 42-28 win over the Bucs and you know they will come to the Burgh ready to play.

The Stillers are coming off their win against the Ratbirds that once again had a whole lot of James Conner. Although the Steelers received a brief scare when Ben left for a play, Joshua Dobbs stepped in and fired a 22-yard pass for a key first down to help keep a key drive alive. That play was so amazing that it left the Ratbirds and even John Harbaugh speechless. Word out of Pittsburgh is that since it will be a short week, expect the Black and Gold to feature the hurry up offense. You need to do the same. Hurry up and get to McGovern’s and cheer on the Black and Gold.

Trivia:
