Wow. How is this team 7-4?! I know how they got here, and I’m exhausted just thinking about it.
Le’Veon Bell was a vision with stats that were otherworldly–33 carries for 204 yards.
The defense looks like a defense full of backups (which they are), but they made stops when it counted.
Markus Wheaton made the return game look better tonight than it has all year. It’s still not great, but better than it’s been.
Ben Roethlisberger had a dreadful first half, but came up with a big touchdown to Antonio Brown on an absolutely beautiful play-action fake.
Mike Mitchell is terrible. William Gay started out great with a pick-six on Zach Mettenberger’s first pass, but didn’t play well the rest of the game. It sure would be nice if Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Ryan Shazier, and Steve McLendon could get healthy. Luckily, the Steelers have 13 days off before their next game. All hail the Bye Week! Couldn’t come at a better time to get some of the defense some extra time to rest. Ben and Bell also both took some hard hits near the end of the game that I imagine they’ll be feeling tomorrow.
Nice to see the team rebound and buckle down in the 4th quarter. Totally different from last week’s game against the Jets.
Glad there’s a week off so the city of Pittsburgh can have a mental health break from this bipolar team. But 7-4 sure looks a whole lot better than 6-5.
