Hey Yinz Guys: 

Hey Yinz Guys,

We always try to make these weekly emails light and fun; and we will do that later. However, all of Steeler Nation’s thoughts, prayers and hearts are with Ryan Shazier as he recovers from his very serious injury.  We as fans get so wrapped up in the games that it is easy to forget what can happen on any play, especially one that is so routine.  Monday night was very sobering for not just Steeler Nation, but sports fans everywhere.  The important thing is that Ryan Shazier is back in Pittsburgh, where he is surrounded by his loved ones and continues to receive world class care.  Let’s all take a moment and send our thoughts, prayers or whatever it is that you do, for a quick recovery.  Here’s to the holiday season bringing #50 walking through the door at Steelers headquarters.

With that said, the season continues and that includes this weekend and you know where to be…

The Ratbirds are on the menu this weekend as they come to tahn in the fourth of four straight prime time games for the Black and Gold.  The Ratbirds are coming off a 44-20 win over the Lions.  Baltimore has played themselves back into playoff contention and are looking at this as a must win game. 

The Stillers are coming off a brutal, 23-20 win over the Bungles in Cincinnati after being down 17-0 early. The Steelers get another last second win, thanks to the foot of Chris Boswell.  Besides the injury to Shazier; the Steelers will also be without JuJu Smith-Schuster for this week’s game due to suspension.  With a win, the Stillers clinch the division!

The Stillers vs Ratbirds is the best rivalry in the NFL so don’t miss out!
