Windy conditions in Cleveland kept the Steelers from needlessly trying a long field goal with a 20-3 lead in the fourth quarter. Instead, the Steelers offense lined up as though it would try to convert a 4th and 18. From there, Ben Roethlisberger backed up and pooch punted the ball, which was eventually downed at the Browns’ 1. It’s not the first time Roethlisberger has been called on for punting duty. The first was in the 2008 playoffs against the Chargers. This, however, was the first to pin the opposition right at their goal line. Given how much Mat McBriar sucks, the Steelers might consider full time punting duty for their quarterback.
