Steelers can’t afford any more setbacks in Roethlisberger Era

Have all Steelers fans breathed their sigh of relief that Tom Brady won’t be in the Super Bowl? Good. Let’s limit our reaction to just that, a sigh of relief. There’s no reason to celebrate. We saw how silly the Bengals looked tweeting away after the Broncos beat the Steelers 23-16 in the AFC divisional playoffs last …

Steelers ride out Burfict storm, conquer Bengals

Will the Pittsburgh Steelers win Super Bowl 50? Who knows. Even if they don’t, their efforts in 2015 won’t be entirely in vain. That’s because thanks to the Steelers, the Bengals won’t be winning the Super Bowl. The Steelers extended the Bengals’ playoff futility with an emotional 18-16 wild-card win Saturday night at Cincinnati. Among Steelers fans, Whoever …

Steelers, Bengals raise stakes in bitter rivalry

The Pittsburgh Steelers got just what they wanted for Christmas. The Bengals. The Steelers did what they had to do to make the playoffs. They beat the Browns 28-12 at Cleveland Sunday and got the help they needed in Buffalo when the Bills beat the Jets 22-17. Bills cornerback Mario Butler – the anti-Ryan Succop …

Inexcusable loss puts Steelers’ playoff hopes in jeopardy

The rest of the NFL can come out from under the bed. All those teams that were shaking in their shoes at the thought of facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs don’t have to worry now, because they probably won’t have to. Even if they do, the Steelers showed in Sunday’s confounding 20-17 loss to …

Steelers 34, Broncos 27: Comeback victory shows how far Steelers have come from last season

The Pittsburgh Steelers are two wins away from their second straight perfect December. So does this mean it’s 2014 all over again? Not exactly. That would be short-changing the 2015 Steelers, who overcame a 17-point deficit to defeat the Denver Broncos 34-27 Sunday at Heinz Field. This year’s Steelers have shown a mental toughness that was missing last …

Steelers move a step closer to playoffs, but AFC North title still unlikely

Cincinnati sure is nice this time of year. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, anyway. The Steelers’ 33-20 win over the Bengals Sunday was their 13th in their last 15 games at Cincinnati, including playoffs, and their 21st out of their last 26 going back to 1991. Ben Roethlisberger improved to 11-2 at Paul Brown Stadium. Steelers …

Steelers rout Colts, face familiar road map to playoffs

In the NFL, there are certain phrases that you want to share a sentence with in December. You want to be a team that “nobody wants to play” and you want to be “hot at the right time.” The Pittsburgh Steelers are at least bearing the first of these labels after Sunday night’s 45-10 thrashing of the Indianapolis …

Defense disappoints in Steelers loss to Seahawks

Sure, if the Steelers had beaten the Seahawks Sunday at Seattle, it would have been hailed as a signature win. The narrative would have gone something like “Watch out Patriots, Broncos and Bengals. Here come the Steelers.” Instead, the Steelers lost 39-30 and the weaknesses that could keep them out of the playoffs were exposed …

Pittsburgh Steelers Post-Bye Week To-Do List

Fresh off their bye week, the Pittsburgh Steelers visit Seattle on Sunday. They haven’t played there since 2003. While the Northwest might be unfamiliar territory for the Steelers, they’re in somewhat familiar territory 10 games into the 2015 season. They’re 6-4 for the third time in the last four years, but in 2012 and 2014, …

Defense helping Steelers avoid losses to bad teams

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ ability to protect their home turf and defeat the Cleveland Browns 30-9 Sunday is significant in more ways than one. Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season was not an easy one for home teams. Visitors won 10 of the 13 Sunday games. Perhaps the most shocking was the Lions’ 18-16 win over the …
