This announcement comes on Veteran's Day, what was once Armistice Day. Pat Tillman was the former member of the Arizona Cardinals who went to fight in Afghanistan after 9/11, and was killed by friendly fire, after a story was released of him dying in combat.
The name 'Pat Tillman' has the gematria of 'death'.
Death = 4+5+1+100+8 = 118 (Jewish Gematria)
Not by coincidence, the Steeler's Ben Roethlisberger will be playing for his 118th regular season win.
The divisors of '44' sum to '84'. The Steelers are in their 84th season. They also defeated the Cardinals, who Tillman played for, in a Super Bowl.
United States of America = 84; Jesuit = 84 (Owner of Steelers is a Jesuit)
11/13/16 = 11+13+16 = 40 (Forty = 84)
Notice the Steelers are currently 4-4, a lot like '44'.
Forty-Four = 144; Seventy-One = 144 (4-4, 7-1)
With regards to this game coming on the 13th of the month, the Steelers defeated the Cowboys in Super Bowl 13. Dallas = 13
