Steelers Exit Playoffs With Loss To Jaguars

If the standard is the standard, then the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers fell very short of reaching the standard that has been set by six Super Bowl winning teams in franchise history.  In a season that saw them win thirteen games, they would lose three during the regular season that were strange to say the least.  There was the Chicago Bears game, where they were more focused on how to handle the national anthem than play a football game.  The five-interception game to the Jacksonville Jaguars, that had Ben Roethlisberger questioning if he still had “it”.  Then finally it was the “what is and is not a catch in the NFL” loss to the New England Patriots.

Even through all that, they won their division and earned a bye in the AFC playoffs...

Bell, Steelers Beat Chiefs 19-13

Coming off one of the more disappointing performances in recent memory, the Pittsburgh Steelers hit the field on Sunday for their toughest opponent of the season thus far.  The Kansas City Chiefs entered play with a perfect 5-0 record, and the Steelers were looking to rebound off an embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.

On Sunday, the Steelers got back to what makes them potentially one of the best teams in the NFL, utilizing the run to set up play action, and they outlasted a late Chiefs comeback to hold on for a 19-13 victory.

Le’Veon Bell dominated this game, just as he did in the Steelers’ playoff victory at Arrowhead Stadium last year.  Bell rushed for 179 yards on 32 carries and one touchdown.  Ben Roethlisberger, while still not as sharp as we are accustome...

Roethlisberger Career Worst 5 INT’s vs. Jaguars

During this past offseason Ben Roethlisberger had mentioned how he thought about retirement.  Fans were hoping he had one more year left in him to quarterback what looked like a very explosive offense.  Even the holdout of Le’Veon Bell during training camp could not dampen the spirt of fans for the upcoming season.

After last week’s win over the Baltimore Ravens, it appeared that the Pittsburgh Steelers had finally found the right blend of offense and defense to make a serious run at a seventh Super Bowl title, even with the temper tantrum of Antonio Brown.  That all changed today after another lackluster performance from that so called explosive offense.  This is not the first time that the offense has looked bad, as they had trouble moving the ball for most of the season.

Bell, Steelers Beat Ravens 26-9

After a disappointing performance last week against the Chicago Bears, the Pittsburgh Steelers took the field today for an early season matchup against the division rival Baltimore Ravens.  Although the start to his season has been rather sluggish, Le’Veon Bell dominated this game throughout, leading the Steelers to a 26-9 victory.

Bell had 35 carries for 144 yards and two touchdowns which kept the Ravens defense on the field for the majority of the afternoon. Ben Roethlisberger completed 18 of 30 passes for 216 yards and one touchdown.  Martavis Bryant had 3 catches for 48 yards and JuJu Smith-Schuster had three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown.

Pittsburgh controlled the game from the start, but had to settle for field goals of 30 and 49 yards by Chris Boswell which pushed the ...
