Steelers Clinch Division With Nail Biting Win

There is no explanation for how the Pittsburgh Steelers have managed to rack up an eight-game winning streak this year.  Each week they seem to be on the verge of defeat, only to grab on to victory in the final seconds.  Tonight’s game against the Baltimore Ravens was no different.  Games with these two teams are tense enough, but tonight is near the top of the list.

Pittsburgh was able to jump out to a 14-point lead and looked to be in control of the game.  Ben Roethlisberger, who would throw for 506 yards tonight, threw a 20yd touchdown pass to Le’Veon Bell for the first score.  Bell would then run for a 1yd touchdown for the second.  Baltimore would cut that lead in half on a touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Chris Moore.

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.

Steelers Use Late Comeback To Tame Bengals

It is late December and for many NFL teams their seasons are on the line.  The Pittsburgh Steelers came into today holding on to the AFC North Divison lead with three division games on the schedule.  Up first was a road contest with the Cincinnati Bengals.  These two teams have a history of hard fought games that borderline on cheap shots.  While today did not feature anything dirty, it was your typical division game that was contested until the end.

Cincinnati struck first with a 23 yard field goal from Randy Bullock, which was then answered by Chris Boswell who booted a 45 yard field to tie the game at three.  A one yard touchdown run by Andy Dalton as time expired to end the first quarter gave the Bengals a 10-3 lead.

The second quarter saw Cincinnati jump out to a two touchdown le...

Steelers Lose Third Straight With 21-14 Loss To Ravens

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently in a tailspin that is being fueled by injuries, bad coaching, and poor play in all three phases of the game.  With today’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh has dropped to 1-3 on the road and is looking up at Baltimore in the standings.  The Steelers fell behind early and their comeback was too little too late as time expired.

Most of the talk coming into the week was if Ben Roethlisberger would be healthy enough to start after knee surgery two weeks ago.  Ben took about 50% of the snaps during practice and was named the starter after a successful pregame workout.  Roethlisberger showed signs of rust throughout the day, and was not helped by his receivers dropping passes.

Roethlisberger finished the day 23-45 for 264 yards with one touchdo...
