05:25 PM ET 11.04 | Antonio Brown left Sunday's game vs. the New York Giants with an apparent ankle injury, following a deep throw from Ben Roethlisberger. At first it appeared as if Brown's gait was thrown off by losing his shoe, however while walking a long the sideline it became apparent that the Steelers' leading receiver was in pain, and struggling with his foot. Antonio Brown's feet became tangled with the defenders on the deep route. Moments ago the Steelers listed Brown as 'questionable' to return, due to an ankle injury. Pittsburgh have turned to Jerricho Cotchery in Brown's absence. The wide receiver, picked up in the off-season has just four receptions for 42 yards on the season.

Can't argue about the calls. Giants are getting the breaks so far this game. But they do not suck. That's the other team.

Well done, Steelers.

Giants problems are the same as they were last year: No running game. Poor special teams coverage. Weak pass coverage. They are living and dying on the arm of Eli, and today he didn't have his magic. They passed on a lot of good offensive linemen in the draft this year in favor of offensive skill players that haven't really contributed that much so far. I didn't like that decision then, and I think it is hurting them now. There is still time for them to put it together, like they did last year, but right now it is very frustrating.

AB is becoming one of the league's best route runners. Great hands - unlike Wallace, he doesn't drop balls. Steelers need him more than of their other receivers.

I got a kick out of when CBS showed the hit in Slow Mo and regular speed on an attempt to explain how a ref could've thought it was a hit to the head and it was obvious even at tull speed that the hit was a shoulder pad to the ribs and no where close to either players' head.

Had the refs called it a late hit, maybe but that's a big maybe!!!
