NFL Week Nine, Update #3

• I guess the bookies know what they're doing. The Steelers, despite turning the ball over three times in the first half, are going to head into the break down just four points. It's not that they haven't been trying to get blown out; Santonio Holmes is certainly doing his part. He's fumbled a couple of times on special teams. Ben Roethlisberger's been a little up and down, but... he's at least made some positive plays. Will be an interesting second half. Denver is up, 14-10.

• San Diego's wearing their powder blue throwbacks today, and their play on the field is also a throwback... to the Craig Whelihan era. They've managed just three offensive points against the Browns, and got a gift touchdown thanks to a Charlie Frye fumble. Chargers lead, 10-9, just before the half.


• The 49ers have a halftime lead for the first time all season. I don't know what I can say about this game that's positive... I think Joe Montana's gotten more camera time than Brad Johnson and Alex Smith combined. The game is moving quickly, so that's a plus. That clock is just ticking, ticking, ticking... I like that like Stanley likes Pretzel Day. 49ers lead, 6-3.
