Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys Weave a Historic Tale

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys both are 7-6 and fighting for their playoff lives. That alone makes Sunday’s Week 15 matchup in Dallas riveting, but history gives this game some extra juice. These are the only two teams who have met three times in the Super Bowl. The Steelers beat the Cowboys twice in …

Pittsburgh Steelers Suffer Alarming 34-24 Loss to San Diego Chargers

The standings say the Pittsburgh Steelers are 7-6, but let’s do some football sabermetrics and create a new stat. In addition to the “W” column and the “L” column, there should be a “WTFL” column in the standings.  The Steelers would have a “4” in that column, because in today’s texting vernacular, Sunday’s 34-24 loss …

Week 14 Could Be a Good Week For Steelers Playoffs Chances

Yes, I realize writing this title very well may jinx it, but sometimes you have to look the jinx gods in their face and flat-out say it. This week could set the Steelers up well for the wildcard and could even possibly throw the division in to the mix.

Fantasy Focus Week 14: Roethlisberger and Dwyer

Handicapping Steelers players for fantasy purposes has been tricky business lately. For instance, no one imagined that Charlie Batch would connect with four different receivers five times for nearly 300 yards passing last week. He was a stellar option in daily fantasy sports contests where he was available at an incredibly cheap salary relative to …

Pittsburgh Steelers Keep the Ball in Their Hands, Use Shaun Suisham’s Foot to Beat Ravens, 23-20

Did anyone really trust Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman to hold on to the football? Emmanuel Sanders couldn’t do it Sunday in Baltimore. He lost a fumble and dropped a pass. Mike Wallace also dropped a pass. That’s not what the Pittsburgh Steelers needed a week after turning the ball over eight times in Cleveland. …

Prediction Markets Indicate Steelers As Significant Underdog Against Ravens

The SportsTradex.com prediction market is currently indicating that the Steelers have a 27% chance of winning the game on Sunday. The market had the Steelers …

Polamalu, Brown Can Make Up for Roethlisberger’s Absence in Steelers’ Rematch against Ravens

As Meatloaf would say: “Don’t be sad, ’cause two out of three ain’t bad.” The Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to have Antonio Brown and Troy Polamalu back for Sunday’s game in Baltimore, but probably not Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers are just going to have to win a game without Roethlisberger, hanging their hat on the …

Steelers’ Loss to Browns Doesn’t Mean This Is 2009 Redux

Let’s see, the Pittsburgh Steelers are without Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu. They showed some promise earlier this season with a four-game winning streak that got them to six wins. Then they lost two straight, including a 20-14 defeat in Cleveland to a woeful Browns team. Now they’re 6-5 and losing their grip on a …

With Charlie Batch at Helm, Steelers Should Still Win

While the Steelers offense certainly will miss Roethlisberger, the Steelers defense as well as a solid run game and a “good enough” passing game should propel them to victory. Oddsmakers currently have the Steelers to have about a 54% chance to win this game. At Sports Tradex, which is a free prediction marketplace that awards …
