Analyzing the Steelers Week 11 loss to the Browns, by the numbers

Analyzing the Steelers Week 11 loss to the Browns, by the numbers

Photo by Kirk Irwin/ With 4 interceptions and 5 players leaving due to injury, it’s the final 0:08 which will be the ongoing story of the game It was an ugly game for the Steelers all around, even before the horrible incident at the end. The Steelers defense seemed confused early, and the offense never really got it all together. Yes, injuries plagued the Steelers on Thursday, particularly on offense. Shockingly, the Steelers found themselves in the game more than midway through the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, the turnovers were too much for the team to overcome and they fell 21-7...

Winners and Losers after the Steelers’ 21-7 loss to the Browns in Week 11

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ After every game there are players who play well, and those who don’t. This is where the ‘Winners and Losers’ column comes from. The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the field Thursday night when they traveled to play the Cleveland Browns in Week 11 of the regular season. After the big time game, it is time to see who performed well, and who left a lot to be desired. Improvement was evident in some ways, and hopefully will continue, but the judgement process must go on. Players who play well can be considered ‘Winners’, while those who left plays on the...

Report Card: Grading the Steelers 21-7 loss to the Browns in Week 11

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ BTSC breaks out the red pen and assigns grades to the Steelers after Week 11 of the 2019 season. The Steelers had an opportunity to go 6-4 and start realizing their playoff destiny, but nothing went right. The game was miserable to watch. I have had more enjoyable prostate exams. For some reason, I’ve been given the responsibility to rate the performance of the squad. It’s not easy, but I’ll give it a whirl. Despite my less than prestigious BTSC teaching certificate, I have to issue the necessary disclaimer. You know the story; of course, I’m not a football...

Steelers players comment on Myles Garrett’s attack on Mason Rudolph

Photo by Jason Miller/ With only seconds remaining in a game that it already been decided, the incidence between the Steelers and Browns will be the only thing many take away from the game It’s one of the worst moments in NFL history to intentionally take place on the football field. Personally, I can’t think of any situation that comes close to what occurred with eight seconds left in the games between the Steelers and Browns Thursday night. When the Browns’ former first-overall pick Myles Garrett ripped off quarterback Mason Rudolph‘s helmet, it instantly drew a penalty. But...

Photo by Jason Miller/ One BTSC writer shares his real-time, initial thoughts of the Steelers road adventure with the Browns.. The Steelers are really riding high after four straight victories.

At this juncture in the season, all games are important and this one seems even more so. Join me, won’t you, as we relive the game in real time. Nonetheless, a simple reminder, a knee jerk reaction is an immediate and unthinking, emotional reaction. It’s basically shooting first and...
