Aaron Rodgers said it best in a post game interview in 2014, "R-E-L-A-X." The Steelers and their fans need to take that message and apply it. The Steelers did suffer a brutal loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday. Does that make the Steelers a fluke? The answer is no. Let's break down what happened and see what this loss might mean for the Steelers and the rest of the league down the rode.
It’s Week 4, you lost to a division rival on primetime, and you face the reality you’re 1-2-1. You realize that you need a lot of help around you and you need to put your head down and win. That is exactly what the Steelers did and they’re now the second seed in the AFC. The Steelers are 5-0 since Week 4, and they aren’t just winning games, they’re dominating. How did the Steelers get this far?
Ah yes it is that time of year again and I’m not talking about the holiday season, I am talking about second half football. With the 23-16 defeat over the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, the Steelers stayed atop the AFC North. The Steelers have been hot lately. Offense and defense are finally complimenting each other on the field and the “Fire Tomlin,” crowd seems to be hiding. Have the Steelers done enough to be contenders?
The Pittsburgh Steelers, led by James Conner, won Sunday 33-18 against Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns. James Conner had 146 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. Conner was 34 yards shy of running what Baker Mayfield threw on Sunday (180). This was James Conner’s third straight game running for 100+ yards and scoring 2+ touchdowns, his fourth of the season. He is the first back in Steelers history and in the NFL since 2009 to do that. Pending the Patriots Bills game on Monday Night, Conner is third on the NFL’s rushing leaders list with 599 yards. He is also beneficial in the pass game. He averages 10.4 yards per reception. He is 4th in yards from scrimmage with 992. At the end of the day, receiving or rushing, James Conner averages almost six yards per play when he touches the football. Le’Veon Bell is still holding out. The question isn’t will Le’Veon be himself when he comes back, but rather is James Conner the starting back for the Pittsburgh Steelers? It’s only been seven games for the Steelers, but I say yes it is time.
Donald Trump wants the United States out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), signed by President Reagan and then-future President Gorbachev of the Soviet Union. There is a lot of speculation as to why we would pull out; what is the purpose?
The Pittsburgh Steelers have taken the lead of the AFC North. With a humiliating Bengals and Ravens loss and devastating Browns loss, the Steelers not playing this Sunday gave them the lead. Thanks to a tie with the Browns week 1, the Steelers went from 3rd to 1st. How did we get here? Let's break it down.
