The Steelers have been on fireplace this season. Coming off wins over a pair of AFC contenders within the Titans and Ravens, Pittsburgh is the NFL’s final remaining undefeated staff.

Plenty of that success has been because of the staff’s explosive offense, led by younger weapons similar to wideout Juju Smith-Schuster and operating again James Conner. Smith-Schuster hauled in seven catches for 67 yards, whereas Conner carried the ball 15 occasions for 47 yards and a rating in Sunday’s win over Baltimore. The 2 have mixed all season to present the Steelers’ one of many league’s most balanced offenses.

That stated, possibly they’re just a little too flashy for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s style.

Smith-Schuster and Conner had been each issued fines of $5,000 for a classless violation of the league’s uniform coverage. What they did was so disgusting. It is unthinkable. They … wore their socks too low?

“Particularly, your stockings did not cowl your decrease leg,” learn a letter from the NFL notifying Smith-Schuster of his high quality, which he then posted on his Instagram story.

Thank goodness the league is taking motion to stop this type of obscenity. Effectively, at the very least in some instances.
