梅森·鲁道夫·迈尔斯·加勒特事件“到目前为止在我们的后视镜中,’ 钢人教练迈克·汤姆林说

Mason Rudolph-Myles Garrett incident 'so far in our rearview mirror,' Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says

The last time Mason Rudolph started a game against the 克利夫兰布朗 为了 匹兹堡钢人队, 比赛的结束是混乱的.

Rudolph got into a fight with Browns star 迈尔斯·加勒特 which resulted in Rudolph’s helmet getting ripped off and Garrett hitting him with it. Garrett accused Rudolph of hurling a racial slur at him which set him off. The defensive end was suspended for the rest of the season and was reinstated in 2020.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced earlier in the week that Rudolph would start for Ben Roethlisberger — who has struggled in recent starts. Tomlin said Wednesday he wouldn’t rehash the past with Rudolph and Garrett.

I will not. I won’t address it. There will be no need for that,” Tomlin told reporters, via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “That’s so far in our rearview mirror we can’t see it.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski added that Garrett was way past the incident.

We talk about maintaining our composure in every single game, it’s nothing new to this week,” Stefanski said. “We’ve got to make sure that we’re keeping the main thing the main thing and focusing on our work.

Roethlisberger said Rudolph could use the incident to his advantage.

There are a couple ways you go about it. You can put it behind you and treat it like a typical quarterback that has to have short-term memory and just go out there and be like whatever happened last year— there’s going to be a lot of hoopla about it—just put it out of your mind and go focus on this year and this game and this team. 要么, you can go take it as motivation that you want to go out and put it on them. Whatever you want to say to help win the football game. It’s really each man individually has to decide how he wants to approach it,” Roethlisberger said.

The Steelers won the matchup earlier this season, 38-7. But now, a win for the Browns means way more than just a way to start off the season on the right foot.

Cleveland can clinch its first playoff berth since 2002 with a win. If they lose, they will rely on a few other scenarios to help them get into the playoffs — they would need an Indianapolis Colts loss or a Tennessee Titans loss combined with a 迈阿密海豚 win or tie, 和一个 巴尔的摩乌鸦 win or tie to get into the playoffs.
