Eli Manning's tunnel vision pays off for Steelers defense

The Steelers rolled over the Giants 24-14. The Giants' strength in coverage is at their cornerback position with Janoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple.

The Steelers had been all over the place on both sides of the ball before Week 11. Beckham went and caught a 25 yard pass. That could be a risky formula against the Cowboys next week. Janoris Jenkins has done a great job on No. 1 wide receivers all year and there's no reason not to think that will continue.

No other Giants expressed a similar opinion after Sunday's loss in Pittsburgh. Witten had nine catches for 66 yards in their Week 1 matchup. It also ended something else - it was Bell's first lost fumble since his rookie season and only the second in his four-year career. He has become their workhorse again - his backups have carried just 27 times since Bell's return in the fourth game. Green caught six passes for 110 yards and his first touchdown of the season. In the first half, he would go 17 for 24 with 204 yards and throw for a touchdown.

Rather than try to overwhelm opponents with firepower they have put the ball in Bell's hands and let him lead the way.

Bell's 100-yard rushing game was his third straight.

New Yorks' six game winning streak ended in Pittsburgh and, although the Giants now occupy a wild card play-off position, competition remains tough in the NFC. It's the first time a Pittsburgh running back has recorded three straight 100-yard games since Willie Parker in the 2006 and 2007 seasons. The previous high was 87 yards by Baltimore's Terrance West in Week 6.

Butler didn't dial up as many blitzes as usual, but even when he didn't call for pressure, the defense continually disrupted Manning's plans.

But where Bell did a lot of the real damage was in the passing game, something Elliott thrives on as well.

Bella Hadid like you've never seen her before
Arriving at the Fashion Awards in London, she told the Press Association: "I don't think people realise how unrealistic it is". The speculations then fired up after Bella Hadid posted a tweet wherein she gushed over The Weeknd's performance on twitter .

Other offensive tendencies that are absolutely mind boggling include targeting Odell Beckham one time in the first half.

For the Giants, this loss really hurts their chances of catching the Cowboys in the NFC East. While Manning can not be blamed for all of the Giants offensive struggles, considering the extreme lack of a run-game, a Quarterback who is supposed to be "elite" can not have performances like this one. Cruz has just 25 fewer yards receiving than Shepard on 31 fewer targets. The Giants did see their one-game stand-in, Randy Bullock, hit all three of his field goal attempts for the Steelers.

Looks like it. Since making his debut against Dallas last month, Green is averaging 18.8 yards per catch and looking very much like the potent downfield threat Pittsburgh envisioned when it tabbed him to replace the retired Heath Miller. But it's not just the targets. Pittsburgh had a good run-pass ratio, which appeared to keep the G-Men off balance. On Sunday, it proved to be just that. They were playing from behind for the entire game, but with 6:30 to go in the third quarter, it was a one-possession game. Ben Roethlisberger had 24 completions for 289 yards and two touchdowns.

The victory over the Giants also included the tight ends Ladarius Green, Jesse James and David Johnson being targeted more times (a combined 16) than wide receivers Antonio Brown, Cobi Hamilton and Eli Rogers (13).

Since Week 7, the Giants have the NFL's 30th-ranked total offense, ahead of only the Browns and Rams.

The Cowboys are No. 1 in the National Football League in time of possession.

Guard David DeCastro was called for his 10th penalty of the season on a careless holding call, and he still lacks the dominant consistency you'd expect from an All-Pro. The Giants turned around a threw a touchdown pass to Jennings.
