The Steelers suffered a humiliation in Oakland. And Mike Tomlin is still trying to explain it away. There's a good reason. He can't. From the Ben Roethlisberger decision, to the timeouts, to the X-Ray machine, to Rocky Bleier popping off. Chris Adamski and Kevin Gorman join me to surf through it all in our weekly Steelers roundtable, brought to you by Sided.co.
Pens Network host Brian Metzer joins me to talk about the Penguins 2-1 win over the Islanders Monday. It's a rare shootout victory for the club, after losing four in a row after regulation.
