I love how pff has been slamming the Steelers for weeks for not belonging in the playoffs, and making the playoffs less exciting, and teams like the Herbert's led Chargers would have made for better television in the wild card weekend... and against all fans backlash against pff for being too harsh on the Steelers, their embarrassing loss proved them right.
The New England Patriots lost 47-17 to the Bills and didn't score a single point until down 27-0 with 1 second left in the 2nd Quarter.
The Philadelphia Eagles lost 31-15 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and didn't score a single point until down 31-0 in the 4th Quarter.
The Arizona Cardinals lost 34-11 to the Los Angeles Rams and didn't score a single point until down 28-0 with 4 minutes left in the 3rd Quarter.
But sure, the Pittsburgh Steelers personally made the NFL playoffs "less exciting".
If the Los Angeles Chargers deserved to be in the playoffs so badly, maybe they shouldn't have lost to the 4-11 Houston Texans on December 26th. The Chargers lost 3 of their lost 4 games of the season. I'd take a long look at that before pointing the figure at anyone else costing Justin Herbert a post-season trip this year.
