Steelers 28, Bengals 21: Antonio Brown provides finishing touch

It was getting to be time to ban all WiFi references involving Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. That whole theme had kind of been beaten to the ground. CBS even did a graphic on it, for crying out loud. But then with 10 seconds left in the Steelers’ game at Cincinnati on Sunday, Roethlisberger’s game-winning 31-yard …

Steelers 41, Falcons 17: T.J. Watt must keep leading defense

The Steelers have taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft six years in a row and counting. Before 2013, their longest string of first-round defensive draft picks had been two years. That draft strategy hadn’t exactly paid off through the first four weeks of the 2018 season. Part of the problem …

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 …

Steelers’ first win of 2018 is collection of breakout games

The Steelers no longer are among the huddled masses of the NFL’s winless teams after their 30-27 win at Tampa Bay Monday night. They stay out of the AFC North basement, they have a better record than the Patriots and we will not have to re-live the horror of 2013’s 0-4 start. That’s the good …

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 …

Tie looks better on Browns than it does on Steelers

Perhaps you’ve heard a million or so times that the Steelers have had only three head coaches since 1969. Well now, they’ve had three ties during that same time period after playing to a 21-21 stalemate with the Browns in Sunday’s 2018 season opener at Cleveland. Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher both have one tie …

Steelers 2018 7-round mock draft: Pittsburgh makes stunning Day 1 trade

There’s always a lot of wheeling and dealing that happens at the NFL draft, but the Steelers aren’t usually a part of it. They might make some trades in the later rounds, but they’ve only traded up in the first round twice this century. They moved from 27 to 16 in 2003 to get Troy …

Predicting each game of the Steelers’ 2017 season

The Steelers already are entering the 2017 season with high hopes, and what we saw on Thursday night did nothing to diminish those expectations. We caught a glimpse of an AFC landscape in which the Patriots aren’t invincible. Now that the countdown to the Steelers’ season opener can be measured in hours and not days or …

Steelers will need Le’Veon Bell if Ben Roethlisberger retires

Le’Veon Bell has generated a lot of debate over the last few months, but at this point everyone can agree that he was a steal in the second round of the 2013 draft. However, the Steelers might have been too smart for their own good when they used the 48th pick on Bell. It’s nice to …
