Jarvis Jones sure got an ear-full after the special teams penalty. The Steelers really hurt themselves on special teams with stupid mistakes. In the first half, they were offsides on a kickoff. In the second half, Shaun Suisham sent one out of bounds before the end zone.
Will Allen played 32 snaps in this game, and he didn’t look like he missed a beat from when he was filling in for Troy Polamalu last season.
Cameron Heyward has some missteps this week. There were a few running plays where he was blown off the ball, and although he registered a sack, the Bills generally kept him in check.
As I mentioned in the first half, Lawrence Timmons played with much more power this week. His sack of E.J. Manuel was certainly forceful.
Not a very impressive week for Fernando Velasco. With the amount of pressure he gave up, it’s a wonder he didn’t allow a sack, though he came close.
Bad look for Jason Worilds on the reception in which the receiver fell down with the ball four ...

Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu may have lost a step over the years—in large part due to injuries that caused him to miss 30 games from 2006-2012—but he’s still managed to establish himself as one of the greatest players to ever play the position. Polamalu, 32, has also made a name for himself for his hair as the pitchman for Head & Shoulders. For the first...
With Pittsburgh Steelers rookie safety Shamarko Thomas now sidelined indefinitely with a left high ankle sprain suffered this past Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, the team will more than likely ask veteran safety Will Allen to fill his shoes when they use their quarters personnel moving forward.

Ben Roethlisberger will be on the trading block this upcoming offseason—just like he was last year—according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense is still struggling in two key areas as they enter their game this coming Sunday against the Detroit Lions and if those areas do not improve in that game, they will surely suffer their seventh loss of the season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers beleaguered running game is starting to find a little traction.
Pittsburgh ran for 136 yards in a 23-10 win over Buffalo last weekend, the team's second-highest total this season. Rookie Le'Veon Bell ran for 57 yards and a touchdown while adding 39 yards receiving.
Coach Mike Tomlin says he's seen some positive out of a battered offensive line...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery caught his sixth touchdown pass of the season Sunday in the win over the Buffalo Bills and he talked after the game about the play that he called a "fall-asleep fade".
"That's what it is," Cotchery said. "We just try to lull the guy [Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore] to sleep. And once he peeks (into...

The most amazing feature of this question, pondered by more than one paid...
We brought you the news a few days ago that Pittburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was reportedly expected to demand a trade from the team in the near future or off-season. Ben once again took to the media to shoot down any and all trade rumors. Per CBSSports: “I’d retire before I’d accept a trade. […]
Quarterback: BQuarterback Ben Roethlisberger certainly didn’t put up one of his better statistical games, but he managed a balanced offensive gameplan that was just enough to seal away a victory in typical Steelers fashion. Roethlisberger threw his only interception of the game on the team’s first drive; unfortunately, it came when the Steelers’ offense was driving deep into...
In all three wins this season, the Steelers defense stepped up and delivered with crushing physical play. One hit in particular was one of the best of the season in any game, and it was (no surprise) by our favorite Steeler right now, Lawrence Timmons. This is textbook quarterback sacking right here, and a crushing blow to rookie E.J. Manuel (thanks to Steelers Depot):
