Dobbs, Steelers too strong for Giants

Dobbs, Steelers too strong for Giants

They had their ups and downs, and they showed they belonged in the league, as did eighth-year linebacker Arthur Moats.

"I think just getting out there in general, having a play on (special) teams and then having the sack as I did, it calmed the nerves a little bit", Watt told reporters ( via ESPN ).

After his rocky start, however, Dobbs settled in and showed flashes of his potential.

Not counting Sammie Coates (PUP list) and Le'Veon Bell (absent), the Steelers brought 88 players to MetLife Stadium on Friday night.

Dillard's slumped 15.5 percent after the chain booked a loss for the second quarter as increased inventory led to big discounts. Among the more popular stocks lifting indexes were Microsoft (+1.54%), Cisco (+1.42%), Apple (+1.39%) and Netflix (+1.36%).

"Make sure you throw the ball to our color", Dobbs said, referring to his pregame speech from the veteran quarterback.

"We wanted to get a good look at him, but he's got to take care of the ball", the coach said. In the first four Pittsburgh possessions, Dobbs completed one pass to a Steelers receiver, and two passes to the Giants defenders. TJ Watt filled the box score on defense demonstrating the hustle and instincts that made him a star at Wisconsin.

T.J. ended the game with five tackles, two sacks and a batted pass.

Dobbs got plenty of playing time as Roethlisberger was held out of action and No. 2 quarterback Landry Jones missed the game because of a strained oblique muscle.

Meanwhile, new United midfielder Nemanja Matic has said winning the Premier League title is the club's aim this season. The Spanish manager believes the signings were needed to freshen up an ageing squad ahead of the new season.

The Steelers trimmed the Giants' lead thanks to a 48-yard field goal by kicker Chris Boswell midway through the second quarter, but the Giants responded on the next drive with a 52-yard Rosas field goal. Hamilton led the receivers with two catches for 72 yards.

A 45-yard field goal by Mike Nugent on the opening series of the second half put NY ahead 12-10, but Arthur Moats intercepted Smith later in the quarter and returned the ball to the NY 14, setting up Boswell's go-ahead kick.

Johnson's fourth series began at the Steelers' 17-yard line following an interception by defensive end Devin Taylor. Smith was 10 of 16 for 114. He led the running backs with 10 carries for 44 yards.

"He likes to play", coach Ben McAdoo said.

Three members of the draft class - James Conner, Cameron Sutton and Keion Adams - didn't dress, and second-rounder JuJu Smith-Schuster left in the first half with a concussion. Though the Steelers have one of the deepest, most dynamic receiving cores in football, Hamilton has performed nicely as a backup to guys like Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. Bryant will return to practice Sunday. Granted, the G-Men didn't dress Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard, while the defense was missing Jason Pierre Paul and Dominique Rogers-Cromartie. These are relatively small concerns in the grand scheme of things, especially for a first-year player, and he has all of pre-season to work them out before the first snap. NY also rested DE Jason Pierre-Paul and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. However, Bryant did not participate in the game, and is waiting for his time to return.
