Steelers’ future depends on Mason Rudolph

Daniel Jones and Kyle Allen have been the talk of the town this week in the NFL. Mason Rudolph? Not so much. Jones, chosen with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, led the Giants from an 18-point halftime deficit Sunday to a 32-31 win in Tampa Bay, completing 23 of 36 passes for …

Seahawks 28, Steelers 26: Ben Roethlisberger out for the season. Now what?

How’s this for a punch to the gut? The Steelers fell to 0-2 with Sunday’s 28-26 loss to the Seahawks at Heinz Field, but the news on Monday was a lot harder to swallow. Ben Roethlisberger will have surgery on his right elbow and is out for the season. It’s not like the Steelers haven’t started …

Predicting each game of the Steelers’ 2019 season

It’s too bad the Steelers don’t own the Raiders on the field the way they own them during the offseason. Last year, the Steelers traded Martavis Bryant to the Raiders for a third-round draft pick that eventually turned into Mason Rudolph. The latter might only be a backup quarterback, but unlike Bryant he’s on an NFL …

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 …

Saints 31, Steelers 28: Steelers aren’t ‘nice’ enough to make the playoffs

The Steelers aren’t likely to find a playoff berth under their tree this Christmas season. They lost 31-28 to the Saints Sunday at New Orleans. The Saints (13-2) clinched home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with the win. There’s nothing naughty about losing to an elite team like this. But Santa knows when the Steelers …

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 20, Jaguars 16: Offense earns its ‘comeback’ badge

It’s one thing for the Steelers to shove a 50-Burger down the Panthers’ throats. It’s one thing for Ben Roethlisberger to earn a perfect passer rating. It’s one thing to score 177 points during a five-game stretch, a franchise record the Steelers had achieved heading into Sunday’s game in Jacksonville, according to the Elias Sports …

Steelers 52, Panthers 21: Six takeaways from Steelers win

It seemed awfully cold for August Thursday night at Heinz Field. The Steelers were playing the Panthers and Joshua Dobbs was at quarterback. Must have been Week 4 of the preseason, right? Nope. This game counted. The Steelers steamrolled the Panthers 52-21, putting up some scoreboard-tilting numbers that provide a perfect opportunity for some takeaways, number-crunching and did-you-knows. …
