Flavor of the Week: It’s all about rolling with the punches

Flavor of the Week: Bengals disappoint; Carson Palmer looks for bounceback

GAR’s Shakir Soto playing for an NFL spot Thursday vs. Cardinals

Thursday night’s tilt against the Arizona Cardinals will be the biggest game of Shakir Soto’s life. Bigger than when his Pitt team beat the eventual national champion Clemson Tigers last November.
