Steelers Roll Past Texans On Christmas

A stress-free football game by the Pittsburgh Steelers was high on the list of things that fans wanted for Christmas and it appeared that Santa delivered.  Pittsburgh got off to a fast start against the Houston Texans and did not let up until the game was over.  Once the final horn sounded, the Steelers would leave town with a 34-6 victory and clinched a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs.

Chris Boswell would get the scoring started when he kicked a 34-yard field goal with 10:40 left in the first quarter to give Pittsburgh a 3-0 lead.  Almost four minutes later the Steelers would add to that lead when Ben Roethlisberger would connect with Justin Hunter on a 5-yard touchdown pass that made the game 10-0.

It would be more of the same in the second quarter for Pittsburgh.  Roosevelt Nix ...

Roethlisberger Throws Four TD’s, Steelers Rout Jets

Other than a horribly disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week Three, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been the most impressive team in the NFL so far this season.  The most recent evidence of that was a Ben Roethlisberger-led 31-13 blowout of the New York Jets at Heinz Field on Sunday.

The Steelers undoubtedly have one of the best offenses in the league, and on Sunday, they faced a depleted Jets secondary, headlined by the absence of Darrell Revis who was sidelined with an injury.  The result was another impressive day for Ben, who threw for 380 yards and 4 touchdowns.

The Jets scored the first points of the game on a 35 yard field goal by Nick Folk, but the lead wouldn’t last for long.  Roethlisberger connected on a 72 yard pass to Sammie Coates for a touchdown, and the Ste...

Steelers Dominate Chiefs In Primetime

Head Coach Mike Tomlin called tonights game “Redemption Sunday”.  The Pittsburgh Steelers were coming off their worst defeat since 1989, and doubt about Super Bowl asperations had crept into the heads of media and fans.  Pittsburgh put those doubts to rest, for at least one week, with a 43-14 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field.

The offense stole the show early by putting up twenty-two points in the first quarter.  Ben Roethlisberger had a hand in all three of these touchdowns and ended up with five touchdown passes on the night for 300 yards.  His first pass was for 31 yards to Darrius Heyward-Bey, the second would be a 4 yard pass across the middle to Antonio Brown.  The final score of the quarter came when Brown caught a 38 yard pass and took it to the house.

Steelers Cruise Past Colts 45-10

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently in a log jam for two Wild Card positions in the AFC.  With five games remaining, three against their division and two against division leaders, Pittsburgh needs to start putting complete games together if they hope to return to the post season.  That journey began tonight against the Indianapolis Colts.

Turnovers, which cost the Steelers dearly last week against the Seattle Seahawks, dominated the first three posessions of the game.  Pittsburgh would fumble the opening kickoff, the Colts would give the ball back, and the Steelers returned the favor with another fumble.  Luckily for Pittsburgh those two early turnovers would lead to only a 3-0 deficit.

The Steelers tied the game with a field goal, before intercepting Matt Hasselbeck for the second t...
