    Awesome game from special teams!

    Hats off to the Steelers Special teams today.

    Field Goal Block by Cam Heyward
    Forced fumble by Stevenson Sylvester
    60 yard punt return for a TD by Antonio Brown
    Jeremy Kapinos averaged 54.2 yards per punt. Who saw THAT coming?
    Great coverage all day long. Phenomenal job!

    The only misstep was a missed 50 yard FG by Suisham but the game was out of range at that point.

    Great job!

    Kapinos has been really good so far....D-Sep you're gone......best special teams performance in some time.......a blocked field goal, a fumble, and a punt return for a TD (could have been a block in the back) but when you're dominating a team you get the calls sometimes....lol

    We just need to get Sweezy out of there and it'll all be gravy.

    One constant this season so far, amidst the up and down play from the offense and defense is the solid, consistent play of the special teams unit.

    These guys have been covering kicks well year long, flying to the ball, gang tackling, and forcing some turnovers. They had a few bumps in the road early in the year but they've also followed those up with big splash plays as well. They currently rank 8th overall in the league on kickoff and punt returns.

    The punt yesterday by Kapinos of nearly 60 yards right before the half which lead to the Bengals 3 and out deep in their own end followed by the punt return for a TD by Antonio Brown which made it 28-7 was the turning point in the game. It broke whatever will or anything the Bengals had left in the tank for the 2nd half and the rest of the game...I agree Kapinos is definitely a keeper and should definitely be the punter going into next season no questions asked...

    I was one of those people that thought Jeremey should have gotten the job in preseason, over Sepulveda. I realize Daniel is the incumbent and he was having a good year until he got hurt again but Kapinos outplayed him the entire way and doesn't have the injury history that Dan has.

    He's doing a great job for us, I have confidence he can bail us out anytime it's needed this season.
