Roethlisberger active for Steelers against Ravens
- November 07, 2016

It didn't help, at least not on this day. Ben Roethlisberger's knee injury explains some of the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive issues, but certainly not all of them. Unfortunately for the Steelers, his presence hasn't done much to boost an anemic offense. The Steelers offense finished with 66 net yards and just two first downs in the first half. (more...)

LeGarrette Blount on pace for record-setting season: In his best game since Tom Brady's return, LeGarrette Blount ran for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns yesterday against his former team in Pittsburgh . "It's going to always be good to get your players back", Bell said . LeVeon Bell did his best to pick up his fallen teammate, leading the team in rushing yards with 53 on 10 carries and leading in receptions and receiving yards with 6 receptions for 55 yards.

Yet in Brady's unwanted four-game absence to begin the year, the Patriots developed in a way they've really needed to since last season: they became a much more well-rounded offense. Bell ran for 81 yards on 21 carries and added 68 yards on 10 catches. "It's great when we get the run game going", said Gronkowski. COLTS 34, TITANS 26: Andrew Luck threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Jack Doyle with 1:55 left to put Indianapolis ahead to stay, and the Colts rallied to beat the Titans for their ... (more...)
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger doesn't plan to change his style
- November 05, 2016

Previously, Tomlin did not speculate on the length of absence for the 34-year-old Roethlisberger, who sustained the injury in the first half of a play in which he was intercepted by safety Reshad Jones during a 30-15 loss to the Miami Dolphins on October 16. (more...)
Tomlin says Big Ben has chance to play Sunday
- November 05, 2016

The reason the Steelers need to win the division this year is the emergence of some of the other divisions in the AFC. "That's in front of us". Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday that his team expects Roethlisberger to play Sunday. Linebacker C.J. Mosley has dealt with some injuries this season, but he is still playing extremely well and is expected to be back on the field against the Ravens. (more...)
Roethlisberger questionable for Steelers as Ravens loom
- November 05, 2016

And that's exactly what happened to me in Week 8. I don't know. I did individual today and threw a little bit. This is the rivalry that I'm guessing the Bengals think they have with us but don't because they're just dirty and very bad and will always lose in the playoffs anyway. (more...)

He also participated in 7-on-7 drills and ran the no-huddle offense during the team's competition period. "Seeing that is very encouraging". The Steelers (4-3) will go with Landry Jones if Roethlisberger can't play . Quarterback Joe Flacco is not on that list again after missing the first games of his nine-year career when he played in just 10 last season, but he is off to one of his worst starts. (more...)

At this point, it would be an upset if anyone other than Roethlisberger got the start Sunday against Baltimore. "I thought it was generally positive", Tomlin said about Roethlisberger's performance at practice this week. Jones played respectably during a 27-16 loss against New England on October 23, throwing for 281 yards with a touchdown and an interception. "I had surgery two weeks ago", said Roethlisberger .

Swelling under control, Roethlisberger hopes to play
- November 03, 2016

Roethlisberger said it is important to feel comfortable on the field, protect himself in the pocket and keep the swelling down on his surgically repaired knee. "Maybe I need to (change my game), but I can't get myself to do it", said Roethlisberger, who has been sacked 450 times during his career. "I know how it feels coming back from a knee injury and the things you go through", Bell said. (more...)
In Landry they trust? Steelers don't have much choice against Patriots
- November 02, 2016

Landry Jones doesn't have a lot of experience but he does have plenty of weapons to use and it should be an interesting matchup. There wasn't a whole lot for Cleveland to write home about defensively, as they allowed over 400 yards of total offense for the 2nd consecutive week, allowing the Titans to rack up 407 yards through the air and on the ground on the day.

With the Pittsburgh Steelers having lost back-to-back games heading into their Week 8 bye week, I chose to take a look at Mike Tomlin's record after losing back-to-back games. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger practiced but did not speak to reporters afterward. "Everyone knows and can see why he's a leader on this team". He underwent surgery the following day and missed a home loss against New England the next Sunday, though he jogged onto the field to greet his defensive teammates and was ... (more...)
Roethlisberger returns to practice after surgery
- November 02, 2016

Ben Roethlisberger had never asked another National Football League player for his jersey until the Pittsburgh Steelers played the New England Patriots last Sunday. If you do the math, in Tomlin's tenure with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he has lost back-to-back games 9 times. Defensive end Cam Heyward (hamstring) and right tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) have practiced regularly and appear to be on the verge of being in the lineup barring a setback. (more...)

The status of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is uncertain, but the Ravens expect to see him on the field for such a huge matchup. "We have to beat the teams in our division to make anything of (the season) anyway, so that's what we're looking to do", he said. (more...)

Roethlisberger underwent surgery for a torn left meniscus November 17 sustained a day earlier against the Miami Dolphins and missed the Steelers' Week 7 loss against the New England Patriots. "We have a long season ahead and we're going to need him down the stretch". The division stinks, though, and I'm not sure there is another team in it that will finish above.500. (more...)

Despite Sunday's defeat, the Steelers are leading the AFC North at 4-2. Jones has been listed as No. 2 on the depth chart throughout the season and will presumable start against the Patriots.

Which Steelers team will show up vs. Patriots?
- November 01, 2016

They are a very, very good team. The Steelers will need every break to stay with a driven Tom Brady and the juggernaut Patriots' offense. And there's proof Pittsburgh can survive without Roethlisberger's familiar No. But it started to turn around for the Jaguars late in last week's win for Chicago, as the no-huddle offense propelled Bortles to a thrilling win over the Bears.

And, yes, the officials made questionable calls that on a good day would've gone their way. "Malcolm made a good play on the interception". "It's a big part of what defenses do", defensive end Chris Long said of the situational aspect of the game, "so it was a good opportunity for us to improve on it and we were better". (more...)

You do so in-order to get updates on the latest injury to a valuable player-a theme that has become all too familiar for the 2016 Pittsburgh Steelers . There was a pivotal stretch in the third quarter when the Steelers cut the deficit to 14-13. The Patriots and Tom Brady have continued to have their way over the Pittsburgh defense for the past decade plus. (more...)

They allow 347.0 total yards per game, ranking them 13th in the National Football League, and shoot up to second in the National Football League in points allowed per game, giving up just 15.2. Throw in linebacker Ryan Shazier - like Gronkowski a physical marvel - and the balky knee that's kept him out of the lineup for a month plus a pass rush that's been more rumor than fact in Pittsburgh's two losses (zero sacks) and the prospect of facing a dominant Brady seems like a mismatch.
