2014 NFL Playoffs: Steelers Fans Stuck Watching Ravens, Patriots and Blount

When the fourth quarter of the AFC wild-card game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers began last Saturday, NBC came out of the commercial and played the beginning of “Ah! Leah!” by Donnie Iris. Since Iris is from the Pittsburgh area, it was meant as a salute to the city. But it turned out …

Bengals vs. Steelers: Showdown for AFC North Title Revives Rivalry

The rivalry between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals hasn’t always burned with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. Unlike the feud between the Steelers and Ravens, which is calibrated almost point for point, the balance of power between the Steelers and Bengals often has leaned Pittsburgh’s way, so the matchups haven’t always been …

Steelers Can Get Away With One More Letdown And Still Win AFC North

So the Steelers are only a half-game behind the Bengals in the AFC North. They’re so close that the Bengals can smell the Primanti’s on their breath. The Steelers scored 40 or more points for the third time this season, a franchise record, in their 42-21 win Sunday at Cincinnati. It was their biggest margin …

LeGarrette Blount Gives Patriots New Way to Torment Steelers

Apparently, leaving the Steelers bleeding in a ditch wasn’t good enough for the Patriots. Bill Belichick figured he’d twist the knife one more time by signing LeGarrette Blount.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Heartbreaking 2013 Season Makes It Hard to Look Ahead

There will be plenty of time to compose a wish list of prospects for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2014 NFL draft.

Pittsburgh Steelers Can Only Watch as 2013 Season Comes to Painful End

First, the Pittsburgh Steelers started the season 0-4. Then they were disgraced in New England. Then a three-game winning streak came to an excruciating end on Thanksgiving night in Baltimore. Then Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds against the Dolphins, foiling what might have been an Immaculate Reception for a new generation. None of that …

Pittsburgh Steelers: All They Want for Christmas is Some Help to Make the Playoffs

The Pittsburgh Steelers not only defeated the Green Bay Packers Sunday, they also vanquished the Grinch. Unlike last year, the Steelers can keep a playoff berth on their Christmas wish list. In 2012, they were mathematically eliminated two days before Christmas with a 13-10 loss at home to the Cincinnati Bengals. To make the playoffs …

Pittsburgh Steelers Keep Playoff Hopes Alive With Wild Win over Packers

What a wild and wacky 2013 season it’s been for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They defeated the Green Bay Packers 38-31 Sunday to remain alive, but still not well, in the race for the final playoff spot in the AFC. The Steelers (7-8) must beat the Browns at home Sunday and have three other games go …

Matt Flynn will start for the Packers in place of Rodgers, who will miss his seventh straight game with a broken collarbone. That gives the Steelers a boost in this game. It also improves their chances of …
