HEAD COACH MIKE TOMLIN NOMINATED FOR COACH OF THE WEEK
Cast your vote now for Mike Tomlin for the NFL Motorola Coach of the Week.
Tomlin led the Steelers to a 23 - 6 win over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Monday Night Football. After falling 0 - 2 to NFC East teams this season, Tomlin developed a game plan that delivered a victory. Tomlin used both starting QB Ben Roethlisberger and backup QB Byron Leftwich, who combined to lead an offense that controlled the clock for more than 30 minutes and put up points in each of the final three quarters. The Steelers defense forced two interceptions, totaled seven sacks, and limited Redskins RB Clinton Portis to only 51 rushing yards. Pittsburgh's defense shut out the Redskins in the final three quarters.
