Steelers vs. Chiefs: 5 burning questions facing Pittsburgh

The Steelers are in a better situation this year than they were heading into their divisional round playoff game last year. Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell both are healthy and ready to go for Sunday’s game at Kansas City. Ben Roethlisberger‘s arm is fully functional. Whatever damage was done to his foot in garbage time of …

It’s OK for Steelers fans to hate the Dolphins

It’s hard for Steelers fans to hate the Dolphins as much as they hate the Bengals. But they can try. Sunday’s AFC wild card game at Heinz Field doesn’t come with the animosity of last year’s wild-card game. We don’t have the Twitter wars that we had last year between the Steelers and Bengals. Part …

Mike Tomlin can make Steelers great again

The Steelers have staged two of the greatest comebacks in recent franchise history this week. First, they rallied from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Ravens 31-27 Sunday and clinch the AFC North. Then on Tuesday, Mike Tomlin had a comeback for Terry Bradshaw‘s criticism of him last week. The former Steelers quarterback said …

Le’Veon Bell driving Steelers offense like a Bus

Perhaps Dec. 11 should be a holiday in Pittsburgh. Not only is it the day that Le’Veon Bell ran for a franchise-record 236 yards in the Steelers’ 27-20 win at Buffalo, it’s also the day of Jerome Bettis‘ last 100-yard rushing game. Exactly 11 years before Bell’s performance for the ages on Sunday, Bettis ran …

LeSean McCoy will test Steelers’ improved run defense

Is anyone else nervous about the Steelers’ game Sunday at Buffalo? The Steelers (7-5) have won three straight and they’re 12-2 in December (counting regular-season games in January) since 2013. Steelers wins have become almost as much a part of December as candy canes and carolers. Throw in the fact that the Steelers are 5-0 against …

Le’Veon Bell’s best milestone would be playoff game

If Le’Veon Bell runs for 100 or more yards Sunday against the Giants at Heinz Field, it will be the first time in his career that he’s done it in three straight games. He’ll have his work cut out for him. The Giants haven’t allowed a 100-yard rusher this season and are third in the league …

Steelers finally feast on Thanksgiving, rout Colts

The Steelers broke a Thanksgiving tradition Thursday by actually winning on Thanksgiving. Except maybe for Antonio Brown‘s first career game with three touchdown catches, nothing happened in the Steelers’ 28-7 win at Indianapolis that will be talked about a decade or two from now. Pat McAfee‘s successful fake punt is just the kind of thing that …

Steelers must beware of underdogs in Dawg Pound

The Steelers need a volunteer. No, they haven’t become so bad during their four-game losing streak that they need fans to suit up. That’s not it. What they need is someone to hold their beer. Huh? The Steelers have pulled more than their share of jackass moves in recent years. Losing to Ryan Mallett and the …

Ben Roethlisberger, Dak Prescott energize Steelers-Cowboys rivalry

Not only has America been divided by red states and blue states every four years since 2004, it also has been divided by black and gold on one side and blue and silver on the other side. The Cowboys visit the Steelers Sunday at Heinz Field. It will be the fourth straight time they’ve met …

Steelers historically struggle when Ben Roethlisberger returns from injuries

Ben Roethlisberger has missed four games at Baltimore in his career, but it doesn’t look like Sunday’s game will be his fifth. Roethlisberger practiced this week less than three weeks after having surgery on his torn meniscus, and at this point it would be stunning if he doesn’t start against the Ravens (3-4). The Steelers …
