Steelers Week 9 Missed Tackles Breakdown

Sunday’s 38-35 victory over the Oakland Raiders truly had a little bit of everything, which unfortunately included more missed tackles by the Steelers defense. The good news is that the total for the game was just eight whiffs, the team’s second best mark of the season. The bad news is…

Mike Tomlin Becomes 3rd Steelers Head Coach To Win 50 Home Games

Lost in the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday home win over the Oakland Raiders is the fact that it was the 50th such victory for head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin, who was hired by the Steelers in 2007 after his predecessor Bill Cowher retired following the 2006 season, is now the third…

QB Landry Jones Shows Again That He Deserves To Be Steelers Backup

If you haven’t already figured it out by now, Landry Jones is now the Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback. While head coach Mike Tomlin tried to sidestep the subject last week that Jones had passed Mike Vick on the depth chart because one player was healthier than the other, the Friday…

Steelers Film Room: Bud Dupree’s Punt Deflection

We’d be here forever if we listed every explosive play in the Pittsburgh Steelers 38-35 victory yesterday over the Oakland Raiders. We’ll cover most of them throughout the week but I want to start off with one I thought the Steelers could generate based on my Raiders scouting report. Breaking…

Dat Dude Nix Continues To Make Plays For Steelers

When the Pittsburgh Steelers signed fullback Roosevelt Nix to a Reserve/Future contract in January, I doubt you could find many people who would have predicted he’d ultimately make the team’s 53 man roster.

Steelers Come Out On Top In Roller Coaster Fourth Quarter

While the Pittsburgh Steelers were able to squeak by yesterday afternoon with a win on a late field goal with two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, that final frame proved to be a wild one that saw 31 points scored and a flurry of momentum swings going back and…

Thrifty Investment On DeAngelo Williams Paying Off Big

It might be the greatest two year, four million dollar contract in Pittsburgh Steelers’ history. That was the price it took to bring in DeAngelo Williams. And boy, is that money well spent. Williams continues to thrive as the team’s starting running back. He found the end zone three times…

Heyward Holding Himself, Steelers Defense Accountable Despite Win

The Pittsburgh Steelers won a pivotal game in the AFC Wild Card race. But hearing Cameron Heyward talk after, you might have guessed the Steelers lost. Heyward was predictably disappointed in giving up 35 points and 440 yards to the Oakland Raiders. And he didn’t mince words. “Offense bailed us…

Will Allen Makes, Misses Plays In Return To Starting Lineup

Pittsburgh Steelers veteran safety Will Allen not only returned from injury, he also returned to the starting lineup after missing the past three games, and all but eight snaps of the game before that, due to an ankle injury. It was a bit of a questionable decision given that, in…

Steelers Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger Receive Top Scores From PFF

It was a game to remember for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who caught a franchise record 17 passes for 284 yards Sunday in the win over the Oakland Raiders, and Pro Football Focus certainly took notice of that performance. Brown, who also had two rushes for 22 yards…

Another Touchdown Catch Masks Struggles For Martavis Bryant

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year wide receiver Martavis Bryant was supposed to break out and become a superstar, a hypothesis that ran into a major road block after the talented pass catcher was slammed with a four-game suspension to start the season, followed by a knee injury that delayed his season debut…
