49ers play Lights OUT football – literally

So after a couple of power failures and cringing every time Ben Roethlisberger thought he could play football, the question begs to be asked…

On a scale of 1 through 5, how would you rate the MNF Seelers @ 49ers game?

  • 5 - The 49ers dominated! Playoffs here we come! (60%, 6 Votes)
  • 1 - The Steelers lost! hahaha (40%, 4 Votes)
  • 3 - If James Harrison couldn't play football, nobody could play football! Lights OUT!! (40%, 4 Votes)
  • 4 - The 49ers actually scored a touchdown! (10%, 1 Votes)
  • 2 - The Steelers couldn't pull out a win (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 10

Interceptions were made by Dashon Goldson, Carlos Rogers, and Tarell Brown. Ray McDonald also forced a fumble on a Big Ben sack, which speaking of sacks, Aldon Smith had 2.5 of them, giving him a total of 13 sacks for the year, a 49er rookie record. Pro Bowl? Definitely. Best rookie of the year? You’re damn right. 

Ben Roethlisberger went 25-for-44 for 330 yards, no touchdowns, 3 interceptions. Alex Smith managed 18-for-31 for 187 yards, 1 touchdown, no interceptions. Turnovers killed the Steelers.

Frank Gore rushed 18 times for a measley 65 yards but also had a touchdown. Rashard Mendenhall was limited to 65 yards on 15 carries, as the 49ers continue their rushing defense dominance.

The Steelers end their 4-game win streak, and likely their chance of winning their division (although they are locked down for the playoffs, now with a 10-4 record). The 49ers stay atop the Saints for a first-round bye.

And do you want to hear a crazy factoid? If the 49ers win the last 2, and the Packers lose the last 2 of their games, the 49ers are the NFC winners, and the road to the Super Bowl will travel through San Francisco. Bizzaro!
