The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football 27-14. Mason Rudolph, the Steelers QB, had 251 yards for 2 touchdowns and a pick. James Conner scurried for 145 yards and a score, and star wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster got 103 yards and a touchdown. Also, Diontae Johnson got 5 catches for 85 yards and a score. Minkah Fitzpatrick, whom the Dolphins traded to the Steelers for a 1st round selection, got two INTs in a revenge game.

The Dolphins, the poor poor dolphins, were up 14-0 in this game at one point, believe it or not. Ryan Fitzpatrick showed some FitzMagic in the first quarter, but it quickly rubbed off. He did have two touchdowns on the day, one to Allen Hurns and the other to Albert Wilson. However, their leading receiever was DeVante Parker. Their running game was horrid, as they traded their young runningback Kenyan Drake Monday to the Cardinals for a sixth round selection in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.

This brings the Dolphins to a horrible 0-7 record, while the Steelers are 3-4 on the year, with star QB Ben Roethlisberger on the shelf.

Congrats to the Steelers on their victory!
