The last time that the Pittsburgh Steelers faced the Oakland Raiders they handled them easily at Heinz Field. The 35-3 win was not without incident though as Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour was ejected for an open-handed punch to the face of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger just seconds after he threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders with just under two minutes to go in the first half.
After completing the throw, Roethlisberger then began walking forward and appeared to say something to Seymour, who proceeded to turn and punch the quarterback in the jaw with his Read more [...]

-B- The Steelers haven't been to Oakland since 2006 but Ben Roethlisberger is still making a name for himself there off the field by giving a grant to the Oakland PD's K-9 unit through his charity. It's not just Oakland though. Roethlsiberger will be donating to local K-9 units at every city the Steelers play a regular season away game at this year. That is very awesome...
Sunday against the Oakland Raiders the Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking for their first road win against the Silver and Black since 1995 when they won 29-10.
The Steelers last trip out to Oakland was not a memorable one for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who went 25-of-37 in the game passing with 4 interceptions, of which 2 were returned for touchdowns by Nnamdi Asomugha and...
The Steelers have had a good balance of run and pass on offense through two weeks. However, the run game has been nonexistent while the passing game, led by Ben Roethlisberger, has been very successful. Heading into Sunday’s game the Steelers may want to go pass heavy in Oakland, but not for t ContinueThe post Steelers Offense Should Drop Balancing Act Sunday appeared first on SteelBlitz.
The run blocking in this game was pretty bad and there were only about 4 plays in total where I thought all 5 linemen did their job well at the same time. If it is any consolation, I thought the pass protection overall was good, but a shorter passing game and quicker release by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger certainly helps this area out.
Oakland, CA. Fans who follow the Oakland Raiders had to feel a sense of optimism heading into the 2012 season. For the first time in many years, the QB situation seemed to be solidified, with the mid-season signing of Carson Palmer last season. The team finished 2011 at 8-8, and showed at times they could compete at a fairly high level. The offense was bringing back stud running...
Spend any sort of time around me and you'll know I have tons of love for anything Jim Henson. So I have to show love to Buzzfeed for their post about all NFL starting quarterbacks and their Muppet doppelgangers.
I was especially anxious to see who they paired Ben Roethlisberger up with, and I gotta say, The Bread Monster from the Rick Moranis episode of Muppets Tonight is...
The Steelers defense picked up where it left off in Denver: surrendering long scoring drives. Luckily, the defense shored up after the second drive of the game to shut out the Jets the rest of the way. And while the offense is averaging 24 points per game so far, there is some work to be done there, yet. The running game was once again stagnant and the offensive line was leaky at...
Below are the passing and rushing stats from the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-10 win over the New York Jets this past Sunday broken down by personnel groupings.
While the overall run/pass balance was about even in the game, 13 of the 28 rushes came when the offense used 13 personnel, which is 1 running back and 3 tight ends. No passes were thrown out of that grouping.
When in 11 personnel...
Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley’s likeness will be airing on an episode of “South Park” this season. The hit comedy show is entering its 17th season and Woodley will join Ben Roethlisberger as the second Steeler to be portrayed on the show.

No coach in the NFL will openly admit that an upcoming opponent is potentially a trap game. Doing so immediately gives bulletin board material to the other team and makes you appear that you are clearly superior. Even if that is the case it’s just not a can of worms that you want to open.
Is this really a trap game though? The Steelers are still not at full strength either in...
New York Jets @ Pittsburgh SteelersAfter blowing up in week 1 the New York Jets offense once again showed it's real face and struggled. The Steelers defense is a great unit but even more so the Jet's offense is a mediocre squad. The Steelers were able to secure an easy 27-10 victory over the Jets. Pittsburgh:Ben Roethlisberger (275 yds 2 TD 0 ints) looked like Big Ben, evading...
