Even in a tough loss for Pittsburgh Steelers fans, family is more important than football. Tonight marked the head-to-head matchups for two sets of brothers, T.J. & Derek Watt, as well as twins Maurkice and Mike Pouncey. Sure, the calls on the field were quite terrible and the local team lost 30-33 in the final seconds on the third attempt of a field goal. But seeing the smiles and love shared at the end of the game, makes you realize that family will be with you much longer than the game. And in the holiday season and the first night of Hanukkah, it seemed only fitting to be reminded of that.

The Steelers record is now 7-4-1 and will play at the Oakland Raiders on December 9th at 4:25pm.
