This is yard markers Chris Mueller.
And here are your three big things from Week eight of the NFL season.
The song remained the same for the Pittsburgh Steelers for the second straight week.
They played far from a complete game against the quality opponent, but still found a way to win and keep their perfect record intact.
Ben Roethlisberger was outstanding in the second half of the Steelers, but the bigger development was that Pittsburgh proved yet again that while it can't do much to stop Lamar Jackson from running the ball, it can force him to turn it over more than any other team.
In two career starts against the Steelers, Jackson has five interceptions and two lost fumbles.
The wind puts the Steelers in the driver's seat for the top seed in the A F C.
As only four of their remaining nine opponents have winning records.
The Indianapolis Colts are a very hard team to figure.
They suffered an inexplicable loss to Jacksonville to open the season, and the Browns handled them in Week five.
But they sit at five and two for the year after a 41 to 21 drubbing of the Lions and it might be time to start taking them more seriously.
The next month of the Colts schedule will determine their fate this season in the faces Baltimore.
Then they travel to Tennessee and then return home to take on the Packers and the Titans.
If the Colts could go to and to in those four games, they could be in control of the A F C South, so long as they managed to sweep Tennessee.
Indianapolis is in the top 10 in the NFL, in both scoring offense and defense.
But it could use better play from Philip Rivers, whose performance for the season has been slightly above league average in terms of passer rating.
Finally, the Los Angeles Chargers deserve better.
Or maybe they don't.
Either way, the move up the Five Freeway from San Diego to L. A hasn't changed.
One of the fundamental truths about the franchise year in and year out there, a talented bunch that gets ra***ed by injuries and loses games in crushing fashion.
They've taken that to an unfathomable extreme this season, going back to a week for the Chargers have lost four straight games in which they led by at least 16 points, becoming the first team in league history with that dubious distinction.
The only week that they didn't was Week six, when they were on a by Justin Herbert, despite occasional rookie growing pains, has been very promising at quarterback, but the Chargers air still in last place in the A F C West, however, had they just been able to protect those leads, they'd be a serious candidate for the top seed in the A F C.
If nothing else, that reality makes him a very interesting potential spoiler down the stretch, which is probably a small comfort to their fans.
So there you have it.
