The Pittsburgh Steelers are 0-2 for the first time since 2002 and are getting ready for another big test this weekend.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Coming off a turbulent 2011-12 campaign, and having inserted two unproven players into the starting lineup, it is fair to say Jamie Dixon’s squad was a team in transition entering the 2012-13 season. Through the first ten games, however, being in transition has been a good thing.
BALTIMORE (93-7 THE FAN) — The Steelers defense, statistically, the best in pro football, hadn’t been forcing many crucial turnovers, and outside linebacker James Harrison hadn’t been his usual dominant self. Both those things changed on Sunday.
CLEVELAND (93-7 THE FAN) — The leader of the so-called “Young Money Club,” who held out this summer for big money, hasn’t exactly been cashing in lately, and Mike Wallace has his own idea of why his team has been offensively bankrupt.
CLEVELAND (93-7 THE FAN) — The return of Plaxico Burress to the Pittsburgh Steelers turned heads this week, but so did his “new” team’s eight turnovers in a stunning upset loss, and Burress accepted responsibility for the one that led to the game-winning score.
In what could be considered the ugliest game the Pittsburgh Steelers have played during the 2012 NFL Season, turnovers killed any chance they had to come back against the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North game that could have helped their cause in the playoff race. Read how the different units of the Steelers fared and their game grade.
PITTSBURGH (AP) Ike Taylor stuck his hands out and reached for the ball. Normally, it leads to an incompletion – and more than a little frustration for the Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback. This time, it led to a touchdown.
Chris | PSD — Pitt coach Todd Graham said Monday in his press conference that the Pitt defense missed out on a lot of turnover opportunities.
