Sportsman of the Week Ending 12/11/2016

The NFL playoff push is in full effect, and an emerging team is the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Thanks to Le'veon Bell, they are suddenly seeming like a short list team to beat in the AFC.  But it was Bell this week that did things that no other Steelers back has done.  In less than ideal conditions against the Buffalo Bills, Bell ran for 236 yards and 3 TD to set a single game Steelers record for rushing yards.  He also added 62 yards receiving to account for 298 of the Steelers 460 total yards.  Most importantly, the win thrust the Steelers a game ahead of the rival Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North and positioned well to host a playoff game the first weekend.  This is Bell's third nod as Sportsman of the Week (first time, and second time) thrusting him into elite company with five others like of Peyton Manning and LeBron James.  A deserving Sportsman of the Week!
