Bobby Hart, a member of the Buffalo Bills offensive line, had his one-game ban overturned by the NFL. On Thursday, the NFL and NFLPA jointly announced that decision.
NFL upholds Bobby Hart’s one-game punishment from the Bills
The NFL announced Hart’s suspension after Buffalo’s Week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans on Monday. According to an NFL press release, Hart attempted to attack a Titans player after the 41-7 outcome but missed and struck a coach.
In Week 3, the Bills will travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins (2-0). Hart won’t do it.
The story took a little turn on Wednesday when Hart stated during his league hearing that defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons of the Titans spat at him. Hart’s comment that prompted his response was that.
Despite the fact that Hart’s side said there was video evidence of it somewhere, Simmons has not yet been subjected to any punishment.
Sean McDermott, the head coach of Buffalo, chose not to respond to questions regarding the event on Thursday.
However, it doesn’t seem like the team is holding it over Hart’s head.
McDermott said he is “looking forwards to getting (Hart) back when he’s back” after declining to express a view on the subject.
The Bills will probably activate offensive tackle Tommy Doyle for Sunday’s game in Hart’s absence to add depth to the offensive line. In Week 2, Doyle had previously been inactive.
Winners and losers from the Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game on Thursday night
Last year, the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Cleveland Browns, a rival team in the same division, in the season series. On Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland exacted revenge.
The Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett guided Cleveland’s offense, anchored by running back Nick Chubb and wide receiver Amari Cooper, top 16 scores in the second half to turn a 14-13 halftime deficit into a 29-17 victory.
The Steelers suffered their second straight defeat when Myles Garrett and Brown’s defense limited Pittsburgh to only three scores in the second half.
With 228 yards on the ground, Chubb entered Thursday’s game at No. 2 in the NFL in rushing. He put out another strong effort in the backfield. The running back for the Browns was tough all night long in between the tackles. In the victory, he gained 113 yards on 23 carries while also scoring.
Brissett and the wide receiver and tight end are developing nice chemistry. Cooper and Njoku hauled in 16 passes for 190 yards and two scores together. Cooper and Njoku were difficult for the Steelers to contain for most of the game. Brissett made 21 attempts to hit the pair.
Philadelphia run blocking
For the third week in a row, the Steelers’ run blocking performance was below par.
On 15 carries, Najee Harris gained 56 yards in the rush. He only got 3.7 yards per attempt on average.
Due to Pittsburgh’s poor rushing offense to this point in the season, the second-year running back’s 56 rushing yards are a shocking season high.
The Steelers franchise mark held by Franco Harris for the most rushing yards by a rookie in a single season was broken by Harris last year. This year, he has struggled to get things going because of the offensive line’s weaknesses.
Efficacy of the Steelers on third downs
Thursday night, the Steelers struggled mightily on third downs. The squad lost despite going just 1 for 9 on third downs.
Noah Brown, a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, is the team’s top receiver entering Week 3 with 10 catches and 159 receiving yards. Cooper, the former No. 1 wide receiver for the Cowboys, had seven catches, 101 yards, and a touchdown alone in Thursday’s game. Cooper’s route running and playmaking skills might be useful to the Cowboys. In Week 3, it was clearly visible.
