Below are the coverage stats for the Pittsburgh Steelers following their 13-10 loss Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The completion percentage of 60% is a bit higher than what you would like to see as is the yards per attempt of 6.95. The 5.29 yards after the catch is also a bit higher than what you would like to see, but as a whole the tackling was much better this week as opposed to last week in the loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
The two interceptions by Cortez Allen really makes the stats above more palatable. It is too bad that the Steelers offense couldn't capitalize on them.

The personnel side of changes will take care of themselves as the off-season begins about 4pm on Sunday for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Decisions of who will be cut and who will be scouted in the draft are already underway but there are two specific changes I’m looking forward to the Steelers making on the coaching staff.
The first thing that needs to be addressed is somewhat taking...
The loss to the Bengals is still all to fresh in our minds, but this puts it into some perspective for everyone. If you’re a supporter of Mike Tomlin, that’s fine. If you’re a detractor then that’s fine too. Either way, changes need to happen, and not just little ones.
If major changes aren’t made by Mr Cliche and Kevin Colbert who is also to blame for this debacle of a...
The Pittsburgh Steelers will place tight end Heath Miller and running back Baron Batch on injured reserve this week and there could be a few other injured players moved there in order to open up a few roster spots for some practice squad players to be added for the final game against the Cleveland Browns.

The Steelers have talent but injuries have slowed them down.
Here are my Power Rankings and a quick note about each team.
1) San Francisco - Don't panic, Seattle doesn't lose at home.
2) Texans - They are solid on both sides of the ball.
3) Patriots - Suspect defense keep them from the top spot.
4) Denver - On the rise, are they a Super Bowl sleeper?

Steelers tight end Heath Miller will miss Sunday's game against Cleveland with an anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament injury that will require season-ending surgery.Fantasy Spin:Miller caught 71 balls for 816 yards and eight touchdowns this season, the latter two being career highs.

At this time of year, questions always arise about whether teams already qualified for the playoffs with nothing to gain, should rest starters or not. An argument can be made for each side, players become rusty or why risk injury? This week, the Cincinnati Bengals face off against the Baltimore Ravens with theoretically nothing to gain with a win. The Bengals are locked in the playoffs...
The Cincinnati Bengals have made the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in 30 years and that should be the main story. And it is. But just barely.
It’s simply hard to get over the mind-blowing decisions of head coach Marvin Lewis during the Bengals’ 13-10 win over the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Sunday which allowed Cincinnati to clinch a wildcard berth at 9-6...
