Steelers beat Chiefs at Arrowhead, point season in right direction

Raise your hand if you played the Win-Loss-Win-Loss game with the Steelers’ schedule back in August and put Ws next to “at Chicago” and “Jacksonville” and Ls next to “at Baltimore” and “at Kansas City.” We got it backwards. We’re used to the Steelers failing to pick up the easy wins, but this year they’re juxtaposing those ugly losses …

Steelers again fail to bear down against weak opponent

Another face plant against a cellar-dwelling opponent. Another collective face palm across Steelers Nation. The Steelers did it again. They lost to yet another team they should have had no problem beating, upholding a dubious tradition that’s been an unfortunate undercurrent of Mike Tomlin’s tenure as head coach. With sole possession of first place in …

Six former Steelers we didn’t know were still in the NFL

How many times have you heard an NFL player’s name and thought to yourself, “I didn’t know he was still in the league.” It turns out there are plenty of former Steelers who are now toiling in obscurity for other teams. It’s not like the Steelers made a mistake letting any of these guys get away, …

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 …

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 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 …

Steelers lose to Patriots, need better backup plan at quarterback

The Steelers have had a hard enough time beating Tom Brady and the Patriots with Ben Roethlisberger. So with Roethlisberger sidelined Sunday, the Patriots’ 27-16 win at Heinz Field isn’t exactly a jaw dropper. Landry Jones did his best. So maybe, as Stuart Smalley would say, the Steelers’ latest loss to the Patriots is “OK.” After all, how should …

Dolphins 30, Steelers 15: Steelers full report card

Where have we seen this before? Once again the Steelers laid a big egg against an NFL weakling, falling to the Dolphins 30-15 Sunday. Unless the Dolphins (2-4) really are as good as the Steelers made them look Sunday, this will be the fifth straight year the Steelers (4-2) have lost to a team that …

Six takeaways from Steelers’ 24-16 win over Bengals

The Steelers defeated the Bengals 24-16 Sunday on a relatively peaceful, if rainy, afternoon at Heinz Field. With Vontaze Burfict far outside Pittsburgh’s city limits, a shouting match between Antonio Brown and Karlos Dansby was about as heated as Sunday’s game would get. It was so civil, in fact, that one of the teams could have …

Five Steelers facing make-or-break seasons

Several Steelers are fighting for roster spots with three preseason games remaining. These five players aren’t necessarily in danger of being cut, and at least one of them is virtually assured of being on the team beyond 2016. But these players, who all have been on the team for at least two years, are at a …
