Steelers 17, Rams 12: Steelers stacking wins in Jenga-like fashion

The Steelers didn’t win a game this season until the last day of September. Now, less than halfway through November, they would be the No. 6 seed in the playoffs if the season ended now. That’s right, after their 17-12 win over the Rams Sunday at Heinz Field, the Steelers (5-4) would win the three-way …

Steelers should fire Keith Butler, not Mike Tomlin, after missing playoffs

The Steelers signed kicker Matt McCrane off the street. He makes all three of his field-goal attempts, including the game-winning 35-yarder with 1:56 left, and the Steelers beat the Bengals 16-13 Sunday at Heinz Field. It’s quite a story, but there was no time to revel in this victory. As soon as the clock struck …

Saints 31, Steelers 28: Steelers aren’t ‘nice’ enough to make the playoffs

The Steelers aren’t likely to find a playoff berth under their tree this Christmas season. They lost 31-28 to the Saints Sunday at New Orleans.

Steelers 17, Patriots 10: Recent Steelers draft picks rise to occasion

The Steelers finally have figured out the key to beating Tom Brady. Wait seven years.

The only other time the Steelers have beaten Brady was 2004, a 34-13 home win. The Steelers …

Chargers 33, Steelers 30: Steelers struggling while other AFC teams are on the rise

Another week, another team that looks like it has a better chance than the Steelers to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Remember a month or so ago when the Patriots and Chiefs seemed to be the main hurdles between the Steelers and Super Bowl LIII? Those were simpler times. Now the Chargers have stamped themselves …

Steelers 52, Panthers 21: Six takeaways from Steelers win

It seemed awfully cold for August Thursday night at Heinz Field. The Steelers were playing the Panthers and Joshua Dobbs was at quarterback. Must have been Week 4 of the preseason, right? Nope. This game counted. The Steelers steamrolled the Panthers 52-21, putting up some scoreboard-tilting numbers that provide a perfect opportunity for some takeaways, number-crunching and did-you-knows. …

Steelers shouldn’t fire Mike Tomlin, at least not this year

It’s one thing for basement bloggers to call for the firing of Mike Tomlin, but it’s quite another when accomplished businessmen who own a piece of the Steelers say that. According to Pro Football Talk, some of the Steelers’ minority owners plan to petition owner Art Rooney II to give Tomlin the pink slip in the …

Steelers’ playoff loss brings anger, not heartbreak

Steelers fans have seen some heartbreaking playoff defeats. Sunday’s 45-42 AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars at Heinz Field wasn’t one of them. Hearts weren’t broken, but rather TV screens, drinking glasses, maybe a cell phone or two. Any object that could have been kicked, punched or thrown by angry Steelers fans was in …
