SCB Steelers Wrap-Up; Steelers Break Playoff Drought By Beating Chiefs

It certainly wasn't pretty at times but the Pittsburgh Steelers are headed back to the AFC Playoffs. A very efficient game by Ben Roethlisberger and more "bend but don't break" defense led the way. Here were my thoughts as the game developed. -Excellent opening drive by the Steelers but you have to score touchdowns. Kicking field goals just isn't acceptable when you have a suspect...

Steelers vs. Chiefs: Five Matchups to Watch

Lawrence Timmons vs. Travis Kelce: This could be a major mismatch for the Steelers. Kelce is one of the best tight ends in football and reminds me of a young Rob Gronkowski. He’s too fast for linebackers and too big for corners, so how do you cover him? Really, you just can’t.Unfortunately for Lawrence Timmons, he’ll most likely draw the matchup against Kelce in this game,...

Ben Roethlisberger: Le’Veon Bell is having an MVP season

At 9-5 on the season, the Pittsburgh Steelers stand a really good chance at earning a playoff spot. And with wins in their final two games, Mike Tomlin’s squad will win the AFC North. A lot of the focus thus far this season has been on Ben Roethlisberger and a passing game that is putting up some ridiculous numbers. But it’s second-year running back Le’Veon Bell who deserves...

Can the Steelers Follow Their Small Step With A Big One?

Last week the Pittsburgh Steelers finally did what they had been seemingly unable to do; they went on the road and beat a team with a lesser record. While they’ve done this a couple of times this season in places like Tennessee and Jacksonville, the players knew how important a win in Atlanta was and for more than just getting another step closer to the playoffs. The win over the...
