Steelers still can catch Patriots in Team of the Century race

Perhaps you’ve heard once, twice or 100 times this week that the Steelers have never beaten a Tom Brady-led Patriots team at Gillette Stadium. That’s just what they’ll have to do to win the AFC championship game Sunday and advance to Super Bowl LI. Steelers wins over the Patriots in any circumstance have been rare …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Le’Veon Bell Suspension Could Have Silver Lining for Steelers

It’s looking more and more like we can just chalk up an 0-2 start for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015. Unless the Steelers figure out a way to win without Le’Veon Bell, that is. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Bell likely will be suspended for the first two games of the season under the NFL’s substance abuse policy. …

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 …

It’s Sad to See the 2014 Pittsburgh Steelers Go

For the fourth straight year, the Pittsburgh Steelers have either missed the playoffs or gone one-and-done in the playoffs. Saturday’s 30-17 wild-card loss to the Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh brings about another long offseason for the Steelers and their fans. There will be plenty of time for mock drafts and free-agency wish lists. Right now, …

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 …

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. The Steelers dropped their weapons, put their hands up and took two steps back after they were steamrolled 55-31 at New England last year. The Steelers-Patriots rivalry …
