Steelers’ win over Packers is a familiar refrain

Here we go again. That sentence was thrown around verbally, mentally and musically Sunday night during the Steelers’ more-thrilling-than-it-had-to-be 31-28 win over the Packers at Heinz Field. The Packers took a 14-6 lead in the first quarter, and regained the lead in the third quarter when Brett Hundley threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams …

Steelers take care of business in comeback win over Colts

No. Just no. Just to make the search engines happy, let’s report that the Steelers defeated the Colts 20-17 Sunday on Chris Boswell‘s walk-off field goal. But they trailed 17-3 early in the third quarter. This had the feel of one of “those” losses. No. Just no. If the Steelers had lost at Indianapolis Sunday, it …

Steelers would be .500 team without T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster

With the Steelers’ bye week falling so conveniently at the midpoint of their season, it would be a good time to hand out midseason awards for 2017. Instead, let’s take a look at one category where we’d have an interesting debate: Rookie of the Year. It’s hard to decide between T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster. …

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 …

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 …

Five Steelers facing make-or-break seasons

Several Steelers are fighting for roster spots with three preseason games remaining. These five players aren’t necessarily in danger of being cut, and at least one of them is virtually assured of being on the team beyond 2016. But these players, who all have been on the team for at least two years, are at a …

5 more worst-case scenarios for Steelers in 2016

The Steelers’ high-powered offense was going to turn Heinz Field into the home of the Greatest Show on Grass in 2016. Instead, it’s starting to look like the Greatest Show on Weed. First Martavis Bryant was suspended for the 2016 season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. It will be his second suspension. He …

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 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 …

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 …
