Steelers Fall To The Bears In Overtime
CHICAGO (AP) - Jordan Howard scored on a 19-yard run in overtime to lead the Chicago Bears to a 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Howard's winning score came two plays after Tarik Cohen broke off what appeared to be an electric 73-yard touchdown run. He was ruled out at the Pittsburgh 37, but Howard took over from there and the Bears came away with a surprising victory. Howard had 138 of Chicago's 220 yards rushing, making up for a lackluster performance by quarterback Mike Glennon. The Steelers (2-1) stayed off the sideline for the national anthem in the wake of President Donald Trump's comments that players who kneel in protest should be fired, though left tackle Alejandro Villanueva - an Army veteran - stood near the tunnel with his hand over his heart.

Pirates Take Two Of Three From Cardinals
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals stumbled against the Pirates for the second straight day, allowing home runs to Starling Marte and rookie Jordan Luplow in a stinging 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. St. Louis began the day 1 1/2 games behind Colorado for the NL's second wild card. With the score 1-1, Pat Bostick singled against Seung Hwan Oh (1-6) leading off the fifth and Marte followed with his seventh home run. Luplow went deep an inning later off Brett Cecil. Jameson Taillon (8-7) allowed one run and four hits in five innings. Five pitchers combined for hitless relief, with Felipe Rivero striking out two in a perfect ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances. Matt Carpenter hit his 22nd home run for St. Louis.

Belle Vernon Celebrates 'Hockeyville'; Pens Fall To Blues
It was a big hockey weekend in Belle Vernon. The community turned out to celebrate Rostraver's Ice Garden being selected as the Hockeyville winner. The facility will receive $150,000 in upgrades to the facility and also was to host the NHL pre-season game between the Penguins and St Louis Blues. A parade was held in Belle Vernon over the weekend and players took part in a workout at the facility but the league deemed the facility could not host the game itself, so it was moved to the UPMC Lemieux Complex in Cranberry. St Louis won the matchup last night 4-1. Jake Guentzel scored two minutes into the game on a beautiful pass from Sidney Crosby but that was the Pens lone goal of the night. The Blues scored twice just 38-seconds apart to take the lead. Pens are right back in action tonight when they visit the Red Wings in Detroit at 7:30pm.

Pens Accept White House Invitation
CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) - Sidney Crosby is backing the Pittsburgh Penguins' decision to accept a White House invitation from President Donald Trump. The reigning two-time Stanley Cup champions announced their decision Sunday morning. "I support it," Crosby said after the Penguins' 4-1 loss against the St. Louis Blues during the annual Hockeyville USA exhibition game Sunday night. "It's a great honor for us to be invited there." The Penguins' decision came on a day that President Trump's criticisms of players who kneel during the national anthem sparked a mass increase in such protests around the National Football League. President Trump also rebuked NBA star Steph Curry this weekend for saying he wouldn't attend a White House visit with the league champion Golden State Warriors before rescinding the team's invitation. The Penguins said they respect the office of the president and "the long tradition of championship teams visiting the White House." The team also attended White House ceremonies following Stanley Cup championships in 2009 and '16, touring the building a visiting briefly with Presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama. "I think we all really enjoyed it last year, being able to see something that not everyone gets to see, and to be able to experience the White House," forward Bryan Rust said. "I think for us, as an organization, we relish the opportunity, and it's something we get to do because we are champions, and we're going to make the most of it." About 200 NFL players sat, knelt or raised fists in defiance on Sunday. A week earlier, just six players protested. Most NFL players locked arms with their teammates - some standing and others kneeling - in show of solidarity. A handful of teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, stayed off the field until after "The Star Spangled Banner" to avoid the issue all together.
