NFL Week 8 Picks: Who the experts are taking in Steelers vs. Colts

The 4-3 Pittsburgh Steelers host the 5-2 Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Heinz Field. See who the experts are taking in this marquee AFC matchup. The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a big win over the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, but when the Indianapolis Colts come to Heinz Field Sunday, a new set of concerns will be facing the Steelers. Andrew Luck has the Colts' offense not just possessing the ball but nearly topping the NFL charts in all statistical categories. With the Colts, it isn't just the offense, but their defense seems to be equally strong. This will be a huge...

Steelers vs. Texans Week 7 statistical breakdown

The Pittsburgh Steelers were victorious on Monday Night Football, but not without plenty of trepidation along the way. Statistics show this team still has some work to do in some key areas. The Pittsburgh Steelers advanced their record to 4-3 after a 30-23 victory over the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 7 action. Looking at this game, and this Steelers' team, from a statistical standpoint shows there is some good, but plenty that could be improved upon moving forward. Stretching is good The Steelers attempted deep passes more against the Texans than they had in...

Steelers win over Houston Texans has higher ratings and World Series Game 1

The NFL rules, that's what it comes down to. When a match-up of two .500 teams soundly trounces Game 1 of the World Series, the gap of that dominance over Major League Baseball gets even wider. It didn't seem on paper the Steelers' Monday Night Football showdown with the Houston Texans would be all that great of a game, but it turned out to be pretty competitive. The same cannot be said for Game 1 of the World Series, which aired Tuesday. According to Nielson, the NFL still rules. Pittsburgh's 30-23 victory over the Texans drew an estimated audience of 13.275 million viewers, soundly...

Tennessee Titans add Richard Gordon to 53-man roster, Derek Moye to practice squad

Some names from the past join up with an opponent in the future. The Steelers will take on the Titans in Week 11 on Monday Night Football. The Steelers and Titans are slated to square off on Monday Night Football in Week 11, a match-up likely to be hyped as Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak facing his former team, as well as ex-Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt (Munchak's replacement) seeing his former employer.. Perhaps they're getting a bit of early intel. The Titans signed ex-Steelers tight end Richard Gordon to their 53-man roster, and added recently released wide...

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Week award

Le'Veon Bell has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award for the third time this season. Help him bring home the hardware and help out the local Pittsburgh community at the same time. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is quickly becoming a superstar in the NFL, and the weekly awards for the second year player continue to roll in. After his 145 yards from scrimmage (57 rushing / 88 receiving) and a touchdown against the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, Bell has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award. This is Bell's third...

The second-down pass to Martavis Bryant was a bit puzzling

The Steelers pulled out a 30-23 victory over Houston on Monday Night Football. The game had everything, including an exciting finish, and we can probably point to the incomplete pass to rookie Martavis Bryant with 3:54 left and the Texans totally out of timeouts as the reason why. If you're anything like me, I'll just bet your heart was right up there in your throat Monday night when the Steelers and Texans players were scrambling to pick up the hot potato that was the pigskin, following Houston kicker Randy Bullock's onside kick attempt with 1:31 left in the game. The Texans had cut their...

Which Colts player would you want on the Steelers roster?

The Indianapolis Colts are a good, young team, and they're starting to come into their own as a legitimate January contender. The Indianapolis Colts had to have earmarked their 2014 season back when they made the decision to release Peyton Manning and rebuild with Andrew Luck. It would take a bit to develop a solid, championship-level team, and this would be the year a realistic plan would produce the highest return of the previous four years. They may have even been a little ahead of schedule on that, but the Colts appear to be a valid candidate for the Super Bowl coming out of the AFC. A...

Jadeveon Clowney Update: "I Would Be Surprised If I Didn't Play [This Week]"

The first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft says he expects to return to action for the Texans on Sunday against the Titans. Listen to what Jadeveon Clowney had to say about his health and what he thinks he can do on Sunday. After returning to practice late last week, there was some hope that Jadeveon Clowney would make his triumphant return to the Texans' lineup against the Steelers on Monday Night Football. Alas, despite Clowney warming up on the field before the game, the Texans declared Clowney inactive for the sixth time this year. In his comments to the media this morning, the...

Colts are better equipped to handle playing without Reggie Wayne this year

Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is out for this Sunday's game against the Steelers, but unlike last year, the Colts are actually well-equipped to play without the star wideout. Last season, the Colts looked like a Super Bowl contender through the first seven games of the season, notching wins over the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, and Denver Broncos.  In week seven, however, star wide receiver Reggie Wayne tore his ACL.  And the Colts weren't the same after that. Pinning it solely on the loss of Reggie Wayne is stupid and lazy, as the defense had some terrible games after that,...
