Take away the 3 unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on the single drive for the Cards (all perfectly legit, BTW, but for the sake of this idiotic argument, we'll take them away) and the resulting FG for that drive, and the numbers look more like this:
Final score: Steelers 24, Cards 23.
Penalties/yards: Steelers 7/56, Cards 8/61- that difference represents a frigging offsides call.
They need to stop bitching. And then they need to adjust their tampons and get a clue.
