It was tough to overcome ourselves in a lot of spots but we kept fighting. It was tough to overcome a blocked punt and a kick getting to the 50-yard line but we kept overcoming them."Fourth and T.B.It is fourth and T.B. Tyler Boyd’s fingerprints were all over this one Sunday. Never mind the career-high 11 catches and the two ice-cold fourth-down conversions in the final 57 seconds. Try the thigh injury that drove him from the game a few times, symbolizing the gutty Valley Forge slog from their own 25 that consumed 4:08 and 75 yards while overcoming a sack that turned into an incomplete pass, a penalty on left tackle Cordy Glenn and a depleted cupboard.

All three phases, we had opportunities to close it. At the end of the day, we have to get these moments right. Both New Orleans and Cincinnati, it’s some of the best parts of playing and coaching are those times and it comes down to the end to do it. We’ve got to nail those. Through the first quarter of the season, our record doesn’t show that we have that part down. We’ve got work to do. We are a good team and record doesn’t show it at this point. So, those three tough losses, we are going right back to it, to get the work and get the things corrected that we’d like to get corrected so that we are playing our best during those moments.”Cincinnati Benglas: Final drive proves Bengals have the guts for gloryWhen A.J.

You’re not going to see him in a bunch of national commercials like Odell Beckham, Jr. He lacks the Q rating of Julio Jones and the magnetism of Antonio Brown. Generally speaking, Green avoids the off-field drama that often seems inherent to the league’s diva position.Random BytesPittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl Window Is Closing—And FastThe Pittsburgh Steelers no longer operate on a Super Bowl standard.
