Steelers 23, Ravens 16: Ben Roethlisberger hangs tough, Steelers hang on

At 36 years old, Ben Roethlisberger‘s still got it. He can take the same kind of beatings he took when he was in his early 30’s. Roethlisberger completed 28 of 47 passes for 270 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Steelers’ 23-16 win over the Ravens Sunday at Baltimore. He also ran …

Ravens 26, Steelers 14: Defense fails early, Roethlisberger falters late

How bad is the Steelers’ defense? It’s reached the point where all it takes to beat the Steelers is an adequate starting quarterback. The Steelers fell to Joe Flacco and the Ravens 26-14 Sunday night at Heinz Field, falling to 1-2-1. Flacco is the last career starter that the Steelers defeated, and even then they gave …

Bengals find another way to lose to Steelers

The Steelers did it again. And so did the Bengals. The Steelers defeated the Bengals 23-20 Monday night on Chris Boswell‘s third walkoff field goal in the last four weeks. They deserve credit for overcoming not only a 17-point deficit but also the mental burden of wondering if teammate Ryan Shazier would ever walk again. …

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. …
