3 reasons why the new extra-point rule will hurt the Pittsburgh Steelers

The NFL recently changed a rule moving the extra point attempt back to the 15 yard line, which makes for a 32 yard extra point attempt. The change is significant for the Steelers, due to the amount of missed field goals at Heinz Field. Yes, Shaun Suisham is a very accurate kicker, but that’s not the concern.

The title is “journeyman” and it simply means that you’ve been good enough to be professional but you aren’t good enough to stick with one team for an extended period of time. In other words, you’re expendable. Pittsburgh Steelers’...

Turnovers Crucial for Sporadic Steelers

Early in the fourth quarter on Sunday, following a Shaun Suisham field goal that cut the Cincinnati Bengals' lead to 21-20, it was a miscue by Andy Dalton that totally changed what was turning into a nail-biter. While faking a handoff to Jeremy Hill, Dalton lost the football and LB Arthur Moats pounced on it for the first turnover of the game. What followed that fumble was a 22-point...
