NFL Expert Picks: Who the experts like in Steelers vs. Jaguars, Week 11

Time to take a look into who the experts like in this AFC battle with plenty of bad blood. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars have a history with one another which dates back to the days of the AFC Central division, but the most recent history leaves a bad taste in Steelers fans’ mouths. The Jaguars came to Heinz Field twice in 2017 and beat the Steelers, the latter of those two meetings was the upset win in the AFC Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs. Needless to say, the Jaguars, despite their record, will get the Steelers’ full attention this Sunday. The two teams...

Jaguars’ head coach Doug Marrone talks about the difficulty of defending the Steelers

Jaguars’ head coach Doug Marrone talks about the difficulty of defending the Steelers

Defending the Pittsburgh Steelers isn’t easy, and Jaguars’ Doug Marrone illustrates this perfectly. The Pittsburgh Steelers have an offense which is something to behold. They are the NFL’s top red-zone offense, and rank third in 3rd down conversions. All while boosting their points-per-game average over 30 for the first time this season, 31 to be exact and that would be 4th in the NFL. When you sit back and try to imagine what it would be like for a defensive coordinator to game plan for Pittsburgh’s offense, it has to be a giant headache. With players like Ben Roethlisberger,...

The answer? The team is winning the battle of the trenches. When talking about the battle of the trenches, the main talking point is about the sack stats for the Steelers. The offensive lines ability to keep players from sacking Ben Roethlisberger, and the defense’s ability...

The Steelers, and their fans, regain their swagger heading into Week 11

The Steelers, and their fans, regain their swagger heading into Week 11

It took a while, but the Steelers, and their fans, have their swagger back. The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t get off to a great start. After all, there was a reason Mike Tomlin referred to the team’s horrid start as the “September Stench”. Nonetheless, the uber talented group rebounded from their 1-2-1 start, and have rattled off 5 straight wins heading into a Week 11 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yeah, the swagger is back. Unlike recent years, there aren’t players chirping from their locker stalls, but just a quiet confidence surrounding the group as they continue to put...

Ryan Switzer’s journey to the Steelers could be viewed as a Godsend

Ryan Switzer’s journey to the Steelers could be viewed as a Godsend

With half of the regular season over, Ryan Switzer is likely looking back and thinking how lucky he is to have found his way to Pittsburgh. Sometimes in life you can look back and view certain situations and circumstances, which at the time were horrible, but turned out to be a blessing in disguise. This absolutely could be the case for Pittsburgh Steelers return man/slot receiver Ryan Switzer. Let’s just go over Switzer’s time in the NFL since being drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft: Selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the 4th round out of UNC After his rookie year, was traded to the...

Ben Roethlisberger on Le’Veon Bell: “the good thing is we don’t have to talk about it anymore.”

Ben Roethlisberger on Le’Veon Bell: “the good thing is we don’t have to talk about it anymore.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ franchise quarterback said plenty about Le’Veon Bell, without saying anything at all. The Pittsburgh Steelers got over one giant hurdle on Tuesday when the clock struck 4 p.m. ET, and it had nothing to do with a game on the football field. It was all about Le’Veon Bell not showing up to work. Him doing this meant he would not be eligible to play at all this season, and the Steelers can now move on from the drama which surrounded Bell, and cast a shroud over the players who play every week. Finally, there is an end to the madness. Granted, it doesn’t mean...

Steelers Injury Report: James Conner still in concussion protocol, but expected to practice

Steelers Injury Report: James Conner still in concussion protocol, but expected to practice

The Pittsburgh Steelers get back to work on Wednesday, and James Conner will continue to work through the concussion protocol at that time. The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off their mini bye week, and are now preparing for the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11. The once prime time game will pit two teams who met twice in 2017, the Jaguars winning both of those contests at Heinz Field, and don’t think for a second the Steelers have forgotten the feeling of having the Jaguars beat them on both occasions. It is now time for the Steelers to return the favor, and as Mike Tomlin addressed the...

NFL Power Rankings: Steelers return ‘home’ to the Top 5 in the latest rankings

NFL Power Rankings: Steelers return ‘home’ to the Top 5 in the latest rankings

The Pittsburgh Steelers were a unanimous Top 5 team heading into the regular season, and after a rough start to the season they are heading back to the front of the pack. The only consistent aspect of the Pittsburgh Steelers early in the season were their inconsistencies. After an opening week tie with the Cleveland Browns, followed by a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers had shown it all — amazing offense, head-scratching play calling and shoddy defense, among others. Needless to say, the Steelers experienced a precipitous drop in the weekly NFL Power Rankings because of their...

Snap totals vs. the Panthers make you wonder if the Steelers really need a true No. 3 WR

Snap totals vs. the Panthers make you wonder if the Steelers really need a true No. 3 WR

The Steelers might not have a dynamic trio at wide receiver, but do they really need three big-time players within this offense? The Pittsburgh Steelers blew the doors off of the Carolina Panthers in Week 10 on Thursday Night Football by posting an astonishing 52 points against the highly touted Panthers’ defense. After the game, you saw ridiculous numbers all around. What was especially interesting were the receiving statistics and those who contributed in one way or another. Ben Roethlisberger completed passes to nine different receivers, and seven different players registered...
