Steelers can’t catch break in crushing loss to Patriots

One word to describe the Steelers’ 27-24 loss to the Patriots Sunday at Heinz Field? Deflating. A little gallows humor. Let’s get this straight. The 6-foot-6, 256-pound Rob Gronkowski, who shouldn’t have been playing two weeks after trying to decapitate the 5-foot-11, 192-pound TreDavious White, carries the Patriots on their game-winning drive. Meanwhile, Gronkowski’s counterpart, Steelers tight …

Steelers’ thrilling win sets stage for showdown with Patriots

The good news is this wild ride of a season took another thrilling turn Sunday night at Heinz Field. The Steelers overcame an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit and beat the Ravens 39-38 on Chris Boswell‘s 46-yard field goal with 42 seconds left. The victory clinched the Steelers’ third AFC North title in four seasons. The bad …

Steelers’ win over Packers is a familiar refrain

Here we go again. That sentence was thrown around verbally, mentally and musically Sunday night during the Steelers’ more-thrilling-than-it-had-to-be 31-28 win over the Packers at Heinz Field. The Packers took a 14-6 lead in the first quarter, and regained the lead in the third quarter when Brett Hundley threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams …

Steelers take care of business in comeback win over Colts

No. Just no. Just to make the search engines happy, let’s report that the Steelers defeated the Colts 20-17 Sunday on Chris Boswell‘s walk-off field goal. But they trailed 17-3 early in the third quarter. This had the feel of one of “those” losses. No. Just no. If the Steelers had lost at Indianapolis Sunday, it …

Steelers turn to JuJu Smith-Schuster in win over Lions

If you’re a Steelers fan and an NFL draft junkie, the moment JuJu Smith-Schuster was drafted doesn’t quite measure up to the moment Ben Roethlisberger was drafted. When Roethlisberger in that pinstripe suit spoke to his new coach on the phone, those of us watching on TV saw a turning point in Steelers history even if …

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 running out of time to win another title in Roethlisberger Era

Tom Brady denied the Steelers a trip to the Super Bowl for the third time in his career Sunday, leading the Patriots to a 36-17 win over the Steelers in the AFC championship game at Gillette Stadium. This loss didn’t come with the immediate heartbreak of last year’s playoff loss or some other Steelers’ playoff …

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 …

Five takeaways from Steelers’ 31-13 win over Jets

It’s hard to imagine the Steelers worrying about the Jets in Week 17 this year. The Steelers delivered another blow to the staggering Jets Sunday, beating them 31-13 at Heinz Field. Ben Roethlisberger threw four touchdown passes and he’s thrown nine in the last two games without an interception. The Jets could have made the playoffs last …

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 …
