Steelers 16, Bengals 10: Steelers’ fate rests more on defense than QB decision

So many people are frantically buying turkeys this week for Thanksgiving, but duck might be the Steelers’ choice. And when Santa Claus delivers presents to children all over the world on Christmas Day, Rudolph will be guiding his reindeer through the sky. But Rudolph might not be guiding the Steelers offense next week. Mason Rudolph‘s …

Steelers 17, Rams 12: Steelers stacking wins in Jenga-like fashion

The Steelers didn’t win a game this season until the last day of September. Now, less than halfway through November, they would be the No. 6 seed in the playoffs if the season ended now. That’s right, after their 17-12 win over the Rams Sunday at Heinz Field, the Steelers (5-4) would win the three-way …

Steelers 26, Colts 24: Steelers win counts in horseshoes — and in football

The Steelers always seem to be the ones carrying the horseshoe when they play the team with the horseshoes on their helmets. The Colts signed Adam Vinatieri from the Patriots after the 2005 season to replace Mike Vanderjagt, whose time in Indianapolis infamously ended when he missed a 46-yard field-goal attempt in the final seconds …

Steelers should fire Keith Butler, not Mike Tomlin, after missing playoffs

The Steelers signed kicker Matt McCrane off the street. He makes all three of his field-goal attempts, including the game-winning 35-yarder with 1:56 left, and the Steelers beat the Bengals 16-13 Sunday at Heinz Field. It’s quite a story, but there was no time to revel in this victory. As soon as the clock struck …

Steelers 17, Patriots 10: Recent Steelers draft picks rise to occasion

The Steelers finally have figured out the key to beating Tom Brady. Wait seven years. Sunday’s 17-10 win at Heinz Field was the Steelers’ first over a Brady-led Patriots team since they won 25-17 at Pittsburgh in 2011. The only other time the Steelers have beaten Brady was 2004, a 34-13 home win. The Steelers …

Raiders 24, Steelers 21: Steelers’ playoff chances slipping away

The Steelers had it made on Sunday. The Ravens lost, giving the Steelers an opportunity to increase their AFC North lead to a game and a half. The Texans lost. The Patriots suffered a crushing loss to the Dolphins on a last-second lateral that turned into a game-winning touchdown. Those losses made the No. 2 …

Broncos 24, Steelers 17: Sloppy Steelers let win slip away

Who needs a first-round bye anyway? It didn’t exactly work out too well for the Steelers in the playoffs last season. The Steelers blew a chance to pull to within a half game of the Chiefs and stay ahead of the Patriots in the jockeying for AFC playoff seeding after falling 24-17 to the Broncos …

Steelers can’t overcome another slow start at home, fall to Chiefs

When did the Steelers start thinking that they could just roll out of bed and win games at home? The Steelers lost their second straight game at Heinz Field Sunday going back to last year’s AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars. The Chiefs defeated the Steelers 42-37. In this defeat and in the aforementioned 45-42 …

Steelers’ playoff loss brings anger, not heartbreak

Steelers fans have seen some heartbreaking playoff defeats. Sunday’s 45-42 AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars at Heinz Field wasn’t one of them. Hearts weren’t broken, but rather TV screens, drinking glasses, maybe a cell phone or two. Any object that could have been kicked, punched or thrown by angry Steelers fans was in …

Steelers never have easy time beating Jaguars

To get to Super Bowl LII, the Steelers most likely will have to beat Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium, something they’ve never done. Before that, however, the Steelers will have to do something else they’ve never done: beat Blake Bortles in Pittsburgh. OK, so it wasn’t really Bortles who beat the Steelers in their 30-9 …
