Watt forced fumble, Roethlisberger and the offense took the ball inside the red-zone, and after a defensive pass interference call set them up at the one yard line, James Conner took care of the rest and plunged into the endzone for the team’s first touchdown of the season. Chris Boswell’s extra point gave the Steelers an early 7-0 lead. In need of a response, Russell Wilson put together a masterful...

With James Conner out nursing a high ankle sprain, rookie Jaylen Samuels led the Steelers with 19 rushes for 142 yards and 30 yards receiving on two reception. The...

The Steelers 2018 NFL Draft class is poised to make a big second year leap

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Looking at the 2018 draft class and what they have done this preseason.
