(AP Photo/Don Wright) by Will GravesAP Sports Writer PITTSBURGH (AP) — The ball was snapped and Jarvis Jones sprinted forward. A moment later, he was in the Buffalo Bills backfield. A split second after that, Buffalo quarterback E.J. Manuel tumbled meekly to the Heinz Field turf in apparent surrender. Jones stood up and walked back to the Pittsburgh Steelers huddle. No big celebration. No histrionics necessary.

(AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) It might just be me and maybe I see the glass as half empty but after the Steelers beat the Bills 23-10 on Sunday, I wasn’t left impressed. Sure, the game really wasn’t in question after the 2nd quarter but this victory was hollow. The Steelers beat a team who was just as bad as they are. The Bills are 3-6, so are the Steelers. If anyone expected the Bills to put on a display like the Patriots did a week prior, they don’t understand football.

(AP Photo/Don Wright, File) by Will GracesAP Sports Writer PITTSBURGH (AP) — Sean Spence had to look. He didn’t really have a choice if he wanted to move forward with the kind of healing that can’t be addressed with a brace or a wad of tape. Handed a photograph of the moment that changed his career and his life, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker tried not to get nauseous. He nearly failed.

TROY POLAMALU by Mike Pelaia Over the past few seasons we’ve seen several Steeler stalwarts play their final game in the black and gold uniform as the team elected to move on due to age, salary or both. 2013 will follow that same pattern as we will likely see some of the following players end their Steeler careers after this season.

And the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver knew it didn’t have as much to do with the pass that had just clanged off his hands as with the expectations — self-imposed or otherwise — he just can’t seem to meet.
