Steelers OC on RB Samuels: 'He makes plays'

Steelers OC on RB Samuels: 'He makes plays'

Fear not, fantasy football fanatics who drafted JuJu Smith-Schuster, the electric Pittsburgh Steelers weapon will be on the field for a Week 16 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

And they'll be doing it without one of their biggest offensive pieces and with a second iffy. Samuels, a fifth-round rookie, racked up 142 rushing yards on 19 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 15, adding two catches for 30 yards.

Smith-Schuster was limited in Thursday's practice and declined comment after Friday's session, in which he did not participate.

Meanwhile, key Saints players could get as much as two weeks rest - the regular-season finale and the playoff bye - if New Orleans wins this week.

Sandra Bullock's character wasn't the only one falling for Keanu Reeves in the first Speed movie. The actress lost her 93-year-old father John W.

The 22-year-old is quickly becoming one of the most well-liked wide outs in the league, and it's because of stuff like this. "The whole season comes down to this", Smith-Schuster wrote.

It's a tough moment for Smith-Schuster, and for the Steelers as well, as now, all of a sudden, the Ravens have taken the division lead in the AFC North.

Drew Brees capped a 326-yard passing performance with 2-yard touchdown to Michael Thomas with 1:25 left, and the New Orleans Saints clinched the top seed in the NFC playoffs with a 31-28 victory over Pittsburgh that dealt a significant blow to the Steelers' playoff hopes. Either the Browns have to beat the Ravens in Baltimore, or the Titans and Colts have to end their game in a tie for the Steelers to earn their fifth-consecutive playoff berth.
