Raiders vs. Steelers second half open thread

The Raiders find themselves down 14-10 at the half with the Steelers getting the ball to begin the third quarter. Oakland scored on their first possession of the game as they often do, but also as they often do the offense sputtered for the remainder of the half. The Raiders have done a tremendous job stuffing the run, as Pittsburgh has rushed for only six yards in the game so far. But Ben Roethlisberger has been hot, going 18/22 for 164 yards and a touchdown, a toe-tapper from Juju Smith-Schuster to end the half. Derek Carr has gone 7/10 for 105 yards, but has been sacked twice. Not...

‘Ben’s at his best when they need him the most’

‘Ben’s at his best when they need him the most’

An old AFC rivalry will be renewed this week when the Raiders and Steelers go head to head in the Oakland Coliseum. The Raiders are playing in the second consecutive game against two of the best teams in the AFC. The defense will have it’s hands full dealing with future Hall of Famers, Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. The Raiders did catch a break however, with the injury to running James Connor who will not play. Connor has been excellent all year in the absence of Le’Veon Bell. A match up to keep an eye on throughout the game is the Steelers pass rush versus the Raiders...

No NFL team is as unsuccessful throwing the challenge flag as the Steelers over the past few years

No NFL team is as unsuccessful throwing the challenge flag as the Steelers over the past few years

Mike Tomlin is 0-9 when he opts to throw the challenge flag as of late, with his last successful challenge coming in Week 9 of 2015 against the Ravens. The Pittsburgh Steelers have not had the greatest of luck when it comes to refereeing decisions in 2018, but while there has been nothing they could have done about most of the missed calls, the ability to throw a challenge flag has done little to help them either. Mike Tomlin has challenged four plays so far this season and has yet to see one go his way, a repeat of the 2017 season when he also failed to win one. Looking back over the...

Bold and bizarre predictions for Steelers vs. Raiders, Week 14

Bold and bizarre predictions for Steelers vs. Raiders, Week 14

BTSC’s Nostradumbass predicts the Steelers’ upcoming game vs. Oakland. The 7-4-1 Steelers had a six-game win streak. Now it is a two-game skid. This week they return to the Black Hole in Oakland to take on an awful team that has proven awfully dangerous to them, especially in this venue. Will the RBs offer any semblance of a rushing attack with James Conner out? Will Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Tomlin finally win in this city? Will Derek Carr’s assessment that Big Ben is not a Top 10 QB be proven correct? Will Darth Raider and his minions see one of their own arrested for attempted...

Time waits for no man, even Ben Roethlisberger

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger needs to decide how he wants to be remembered. His story is far from complete, and the ending is up to him. Time remains an undefeated opponent. It catches up to us all at some point, and we are left with memories of what used to be. That is why it's important to live life to it's fullest and leave few regrets. Ben Roethlisberger has had a remarkable Hall of Fame career. Everything from the long winning streak to start his Rookie of the Year season, to his two Super Bowl titles in the first five years of his career, seems to have been taken directly...
The Steelers game against the Raiders might not be do or die, but it’s a must-win

The Steelers game against the Raiders might not be do or die, but it’s a must-win

Are the Steelers a dominant team? No. Are they good enough to defeat the Raiders, make the playoffs and do some damage once they get there? Yes. And that means a loss on Sunday simply cannot and will not happen. Fans are funny, in that they always tend to think the worst about their favorite football team. Take Steelers fans, for example. After two-straight losses that have left the Steelers at 7-4-1, many are now predicting a total collapse that will leave them on the outside looking in when the playoffs kickoff in about a month. According to many, Pittsburgh hasn’t defeated a good...
