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 …

James Harrison is just having his mid-life crisis

Hopefully any Steelers fans who saw the solar eclipse of 2017 still have those safety glasses handy, because judging from the reaction in Pittsburgh they’ll need them to bear the sight of James Harrison in a Patriots uniform. If Steelers fans think it’s hard for them to see Harrison in those threads, imagine how the …

Steelers defense shines again in win over Bengals

Oh yeah, the Steelers have Joe Haden. Somehow a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback acquired from a division rival has flown under the radar this season despite playing more than 98 percent of the Steelers’ defensive snaps. That’s a good thing. It means Haden, who the Steelers signed after he was cut by the Browns, hasn’t …

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’ 2017 seven-round mock draft

The Steelers have come a step closer to the Super Bowl every year since 2014. They reached the wild-card round of the playoffs two years ago, the divisional round in 2015 and the conference championship game last year. The next step is the most difficult. The Steelers have to find a way to get past …

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 …

Le’Veon Bell’s best milestone would be playoff game

If Le’Veon Bell runs for 100 or more yards Sunday against the Giants at Heinz Field, it will be the first time in his career that he’s done it in three straight games. He’ll have his work cut out for him. The Giants haven’t allowed a 100-yard rusher this season and are third in the league …

Steelers must beware of underdogs in Dawg Pound

The Steelers need a volunteer. No, they haven’t become so bad during their four-game losing streak that they need fans to suit up. That’s not it. What they need is someone to hold their beer. Huh? The Steelers have pulled more than their share of jackass moves in recent years. Losing to Ryan Mallett and the …

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 …
