Pittsburgh Steelers: Mid-season defensive grades

The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves in the middle of the pack in defensive rankings. Pittsburgh ranks 16th in the NFL in total defense which is a position that the Steel Curtain defense is not used to being in. There are no real standout players on the Steelers defense.

Over the middle: Top 5 wide receivers Week 9

1. Antonio Brown AP Photo It is hard to not put Antonio Brown as the number one fantasy wide receiver each week because he just keeps producing. If Brown is not getting his consistent at least five catches and at least 50 yards, he is either throwing a touchdown pass or running the ball. What can’t he do? The Steelers are coming off two big games, and if they keep scoring big...

Around 9:57 (ET) during the Steelers Monday night football clash against Houston in Week 7, my brother called me on the phone, all excited because Pittsburgh was in the throes of scoring 24 points in the final three minutes of the second quarter.
